What types of devices and gear do I need to get started?

To use Sessions you need an iPhone with iOS 13.0 or greater. You will also need to wear a Surfline-compatible device —Apple Watch, Rip Curl SearchGPS Watch or Garmin Watch— while you surf to track your sessions.

Apple Watch: The Apple Watch, Series 3 or greater, is compatible with the Sessions app. Use the Surfline app on your watch or install the Dawn Patrol App onto your iOS device, and set up your account to begin tracking your Sessions.

  • NOTE: Series 3 will work, but the performance and battery life are significantly lower with the newest Apple software updates.

Rip Curl Watch: Any of the Search Rip Curl Watches, versions 1.0 or 2.0, are compatible with the Surfline app. You will need to install the Rip Curl Search App on your iOS device, and setup your account before paddling out.

Garmin Devices: Check out here for a list of devices that support the Garmin Surf Activity. Make sure your Garmin Device is verified and that you have the Garmin Connect iOS App and a Garmin account.
