Surf Report and Forecast Tool

LW Brands, LLC
THE BEST SURF REPORT / FORECASTING TOOL PERIOD
... and it's all based on NOAA buoy data...

** Now available for iPad and iPhone **

Indicators is the only iPhone app that gives you 'spectral energy density' buoy data and makes it easy to understand... so you can truely know if it's firing at your favorite spot...

FEATURES INCLUE:
- Real-Time NOAA Buoy Data
- 6 Hour History NOAA Buoy Data
- 7 Day Forecasted NOAA Buoy Data

- Real-Time NOAA Buoy Data
Spectral wave energy data collected by offshore buoys is the best indicator of surf conditions in your area. Indicators makes it simple to read this wave energy data so you can determine the best swell windows (combinations of swell period and direction) for your favorite breaks. Buoys report data every 30 minutes, giving you a much better idea of how much swell is in the water rather than a subjective "cam watching" report.

- 6 Hour History NOAA Buoy Data
Too often, swell arrives later than predicted. Use the 6-hour history feature to determine if the swell has arrived. If not, go back to bed.

- 7 Day Forecasted NOAA Buoy Data
Graphically view forecasted buoy data, giving you a better idea of how the swell is changing with time.


Indicators allows you to:

STOP WASTING TIME WATCHING SURF CAMS
Waves come in sets... So if you are watching a cam...
Are you sure you've watched long enough to see a good set? Are you sure you weren't fooled because you saw a rogue set? If you did see a good set... wouldn't you rather be riding it?

STOP READING REPORTS THAT ONLY UPDATE TWICE PER DAY
Who makes these reports? Dudes watching cams... (flawed). How often are these updated? Twice per day... Really? Buoy data updates every 30 mintues... (I'd pick this one)

KNOW WHEN THE SURF IS GOOD IN SECONDS
You only need buoy data... but not just any buoy data... You need swell height, direction and period for each swell. You can use this app to determine the optimal swell direction / period for your favorite breaks...
