Updated 17 Dec 2017: New HAWAII surf spots added. See full list below
Is your surf spot not available? Please leave a comment below about where it is located and I’ll add it to the Surf Checker Skill at the next update.
In my last post, Creating the “Surf Checker”. An Amazon Echo Skill, I introduced the Surf Checker, an Amazon Echo Skill that can give you the surf report. It now has some new features, the TIDE report and the BEST DAY TO SURF Report.
Now even easier to use, the skill can now give you a surf and tide report for many most California and Hawaii surf spots and let you know when the best day to surf is.
Here are other example commands you can try:
- “Alexa, Ask Surf Checker for Salt Creek on Tuesday”
- “Alexa, Ask Surf Checker when is the best day to surf Lowers”
- “Alexa, Ask Surf Checker what is the tide report for Huntington State Beach”
After you received a report in a session, it remembers your spot and you can shorten your next report requests. For examples:
- “What it the tide report”
- “When is the best day to surf”
The surf spot list is growing. Below are all the spots the Surf Checker understands now:
