The idea behind the Surf Reporter app is to allow a community of surfers to share surf reports. It saves phoning your friends all day and driving from beach to beach checking the conditions. You can add photos and comments and see where everyone is surfing on the map. And, as only your friends see your reports you can keep secret going off messages just between your mates!
The Junior World Championships is the largest junior surf competition in the world and features nearly 300 of the worlds best juniors from 35 countries. The team aim to record the highest ever placing, and who knows maybe even return with a medal.
The surf reporter app is available to download here
