If you're a fan of surf gadgets, you're going to love the Rip Curl Search GPS tide watch. Not only does it give you accurate tide readings anywhere in the world at a single touch of a button, but it also boasts some very tech features that can enhance you're surfing experience each time. We're talking top surfing speeds, length of wave distances, wave count, paddle distance as well as others.
It's also completely interactive through an Iphone app so you can keep an eye on how your friends have been surfing, as well as the Rip Curl surf team (who you will automatically be following, Mick Fanning, Owen Wright ETC)
You can hide locations if you don't want anyone to know your surf spot, add pictures, rate you surf and much more.
The watch is very simple to set up and sync with your device and it is extremely basic to use.
I've been wearing mine under my wetsuit each surf and the stats have been very interesting indeed.
You attach a clip to the watch and charge it through USB and the battery life lasts for weeks !
It's pretty bulky but you can still pull it off for casual wear and it's gonna cost you just under £300.00
All of our coaches at Smart Surf have tested it and we all agree it's well worth the money.
Here's how Sam did lately.....
