“The official NOAA buoys are essential tools that pro surfers use, and you should too. This app is definitely a steal.” – Surfer Magazine

"’It's actually great for figuring out what's going on when you wake up in the dark and need figure out what's going on, without leaving your bed’ […] If the surf hasn't cleaned up yet, or the swell hasn't arrived, no one wants to stumble out into a 40-degree morning […] It's also good for getting real time info to track a swell, watching the numbers rise or fall.” – www.espn.com

The app “processes countless data from NOAA’s buoys and displays it in an easy-to-read format on your phone.” – Eastern Surf Magazine
