Created this for all fellow travelers to help them find the perfect surfing destination for them. It is still in the early stages and a big work in progress but all comments are welcome
Hey mate, not a bad effort. I like the idea but needs some refinement. Have you created the algorithm? Or the website? Or both?
It took me 4-5 attempts to get a result through the search, even with very minimal choice inputs. The information on each location was a bit dry, too, if I'm honest.
From a design perspective, it needs a bit of work, also. Typography and branding specifically.
Are you considering developing this more? Or just mucking around with a prototype? Would be keen to help with branding/design if you want some input or collab... Let me know, as it would be a great passion project for me to be a part of.
Mate, i reckon it's cool and i reckon you're definitely on to something.
I plugged in some filters having a predetermined destination in mind and it nailed it. Well done and good luck for the future.
ps- as Bodhi above mentioned, it needs refinement and perhaps more detail, but as an early indicator of what may come, i think it's very well done.
The site lists the waves in the maldives as "empty" (:~(
Not entirely accurate with the information.
As a filter option, how about board type... shortboard, retro, longboard, sup, body board?
Good site. I wonder how many people are gonna select "crowded" as an option.
"minor" concept problem:
- If the web site had thousands of users picking similar criteria it would direct them to a narrow range of spots and result in massive overcrowding.
If it became popular you might have some very unhappy customers and locals.
Frog, sssssh, that’s why I like it,think about it
hi, thanks for the heads up. I think all the spots I put on the site are already known by most surfers. I try not to mention any secret spots or anything as well as the goal is to help people pick a country or destination and then they will have to do their own deeper research.
@Gods Squad yes I created the website and the search engine. It is still a work in progress as I do not have that much knowledge in web development but I love doing it and I hope people will love using it just as much! If you have ideas or things to improve, feel free to let me know! Cheers
