Why doesn't Amazon Alexa give me the surf report?

The Surfline skill is now available on Alexa-enabled devices. To activate the Surfline skill, just say "Alexa, open Surfline."

Once you have downloaded the skill onto your device, you can ask Alexa for surf report data by saying "Ask Surfline for the surf report at [your favorite spot]." You can also:

  • ...ask Surfline for the wave height at [your favorite spot].
  • ...ask Surfline for the wind at [your favorite spot].
  • ...ask Surfline for the tide at [your favorite spot].
  • ...ask Surfline for the water temperature at [your favorite spot].
  • ...ask Surfline for the full surf report at [your favorite spot].

If you're having trouble accessing surf report data from Alexa, please:

  1. Be sure to use the utterances listed above.
  2. Be sure to ask for a specific surf spot instead of a city name or location.
  3. Note that not all surf spots (and their various names) are available via Alexa, but we are adding new spots all the time!

If you find that the Surfline skill isn't recognizing your spot name, please send us a note at support@surfline.com. Our spot database has thousands of spots and we're always adding more!
