MSW Surf Forecast user reviews :
The app needs to streamline. Job 1 would be to be able to code it so you see all wave heights at the locations you have chosen for your favs. Right now you have select each one to be able to see wave sizes. It would be much more user friendly to first see heights and the chosen locations and then if you want more swell data you can then choose to do so.
MSW used to be great, I used it for paddleboarding. It was simple to use and provided local maps and forecasts. Then I updated it…BIG mistake! Should have read the most recent reviews first, opinion is pretty unanimous. The app is ruined since joining Surfline.
The app was great until the update. Now it is ridiculously slow, and prone to freezing and crashing. Not only are pages slow to load, but even once they are loaded, scrolling down the page is excruciatingly slow and always freezes, causing Android to throw up “Magic Seaweed isn’t responding. Would you like to wait?” error messages. In its current state it isn’t functional. I’m still holding out on uninstalling it just in case it gets fixed, but at the moment I am no longer relying on this as I was before, and am trying out alternatives.
I use this on my laptop but thought the app would be easier so I didn’t have to fire up the PC when I wanted to check surf conditions. Works a treat! doesn’t seem to have the same level of forecast detail as the website (I assume paying for the Pro version would fix this) but it gives me enough info to make a decision on where to head to. I use this in conjunction with the Safer Seas app that gives water quality info. It would be good to see these two linked to save me going into both!
Superior to Surfline for the information at hand. App is more buggy than Surfline and less refined, but the information is much better and the forecasting for Free Account user’s is long and better.
Stopped working correctly since recent update (Feb 2023) – Pixel 4a. Initially no favourites shown then after restart favourites are now shown but clicking on them does nothing. Please fix asap as this has been an issue for ~2 weeks. When it’s working it’s very useful but currently not usable and I’m paying for the pro version. Edit – working after reload of app. The web cameras are great but flaky interface is not the best.
- Hey, pleased that a reinstall fixed the issues but sorry to learn of the inconvenience. I’m keen to make sure our team fully understand the “flaky interface” you describe. If there is any more detail you could share, write to support[at]magicseaweed.com and ask for me by name, referencing this review. Hope to hear from you soon. — James.
Consistantly over rates wind speeds by enough that it’s no use for kitesurfing. The maps have disappeared which makes finding spots much harder. The descriptions of surf spots are so comically out of date that apparently empty quiet spots can actually have half a dozen schools and hordes of surfers. Probably best to replace all the descriptions with “bloody busy spot with surf nowhere near as good as you hoped for”. Still use it loads though and still absolutely believe it’s going to be a 5 star day every time.
