PRAISE FOR BOMBORA
"Before this app came out, I had three tide apps, the Surfline app, and a buoy app. Most of the time to check secret spots, I'd have to spend a while on the Internet on various NOAA sites and forecast sites to check the specific conditions in order for it to work. This app makes it a lot easier to figure out if I should drive the three hours to get some waves or not."
"This app is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who surfs, body-boards, kayaks, etc, or just walks on the beach.. Seriously, the amount of information you can get by just touching a button is ASTOUNDING. Honestly, a one-time fee for a lifetime of info--what could possibly hold you back?! I am not a surfer, but Bombora is the first thing I check before choosing the best beach nearest me to walk my dog. A must have, for sure, for any beach-goer, anywhere on this planet."
