GPS Surf Watch

  • Rip Curl Search GPS Watch update

    At last we have received some of the hugely awaited Ripcurl GPS watches - The World’s First GPS Surf Watch – We tested a prototype back in the Summer and have been dying to get our hands one since. For those who don’t like gadgets or have spent time in the past trying to set up a Surf Tide watch - The One Touch Auto set up is a dream – All you do is press one button and let the Search GPS Watch do the rest – using Global positioning the watch sets itself to your local time and sets the tide to the nearest Port or Beach.


    The team behind the innovation at Rip Curl have created a truly exciting gadget/app to help improve and enhance your surfing to make sure that your time spent in the water is well and truly spent!

    This is a very clever bit of kit, enabling you to track  a range of stats to check out on your watch and mobile app such as:

    • Number of Waves Caught


    You are now ready to predict time and tide and then track every wave you get, register your top speed and distance and rack up your wave count in each session – Ripcurl team rider Gabriel Medina is renowned for catching a huge amount of waves every time he surfs. Recently at Rocky Point in Hawaii, Gabriel scored 43 waves in just over an hour and a half... that’s roughly one wave every two and a half minutes! Think you can catch more than Medina?


    • Time Spent in the water

    During a trip to Cloudbreak Fiji, Alana Blanchard surfed a total of 25 hours over 4 surf sessions. From this on average she was surfing 6.25 hours a day. Through knowing this info she could plan a training program to helps her to balance her body and lifestyle!
