Surfing Smartphones have changed the way we live our surfing life, and apps have become a key tool for planning our wave riding sessions. Here are the essential apps every surfer should have. Most of the Australian surfers now use a boardriders app for their convenience.
Surfing apps serve different purposes, but you can’t have all of them. Otherwise, your mobile device will turn into a useless, chaotic app farm. Also, make sure they’re light and fast so that they won’t drain the battery quickly.
So, the smartest move is to be picky and ultra-selective. You want apps that will improve your surfing experience, and that will stay on your phone for a long time.
