Royal Palm Beach, FL, United States, 2013/01/23 - Surfr allows users to document, follow, and share their surfing adventures. With all the noise on mainstream social channels, niche social media is where the industry is heading - SurfrApp.com.
No group is more enthusiastic about its activity than surfers, and now surfers will have the opportunity to share their passion with other members of the surfing community through a new social media tool.
Surfr, a smartphone app developed by the award-winning high-tech agency Pixil, is designed for surfers to chronicle their surfing adventures and easily share them with others. Combining all the best features of a surf report tool, a surf forecast app, Foursquare, Twitter and Instagram, the Surfr app allows surfers to monitor the latest swells and instantly pass along the information to their friends. The innovative app allows for the seamless uploading of photos and check-ins at surfing hot spots. It even alerts users when and where an attractive swell is expected to show up.
Created by avid surfers, the Surfr app encourages users to check-in to breaks at various locations, allows them to tag friends and fellow surfers and saves information involving wave height, swell direction, air and water temperature and wind speed and direction to the user’s timeline. A user-friendly search tool allows surfers to seek out photos and surf conditions from numerous locations with just the touch of a button. The Surfr app also provides an easy way to share the details of your surfing adventures by linking them to social network.
To become involved with the development of Surfr, you can make a contribution to the project’s Kickstarter account. To help, visit the Surfr App Kickstarter page.
Surfr requires $50,000 to launch the app for the iPhone and a total of $100,000 to launch the app for Android as well. The minimum pledge to back the project on Kickstarter is just $1, a small price to pay for the privilege of becoming part of such an exciting project.
