What is Sessions?
Wear a watch while you surf in front of one of our surf cams. We’ll automatically generate your clips and send them to your iOS app while you’re getting changed out of the wetsuit. Find out more here.
How does it work?
When recording a Session wearing an Apple Watch (or another compatible device — see below), our cameras will detect and record any waves ridden within view of a Surfline cam. All waves ridden (or attempted) within view of a Surfline cam will be compiled into Sessions clips and automatically uploaded to your Surfline app on your iPhone. These rides will be delivered as both shareable clip URLS and downloadable files.
What is the Surfline Compatible Program?
The Surfline Compatible Partner Program was created to accommodate surfers who want to track using other services/devices and drive innovation in this area. This program includes both software and hardware developers that meet a standard of quality that we approve.
Through the Surfline Compatible Partner Program, we are proud to support the following devices and software developers
Dawn Patrol tracking app on the Apple Watch and iOS devices.
Rip Curl Search GPS I & II watches and their iPhone iOS app.
Once you connect your Surfline account with that of our compatible partners, your sessions will automatically sync to Surfline and generate clips. Surfline's partnered apps will provide the detailed metrics of your tracked Sessions.
How can I get started?
How you use Sessions will depend on the watch/software you use to record the Session.
