Get a personalized surf forecast with BUIO App

Remember that ​fantastic session last March at your favorite spot?
​Never again did it feel this good?

BUIO© will be able to tell you exactly when wave size, swell direction, wind and tides are the same – or similar enough – again, and you might be one of the only ones out, just because that generalized forecast only called it ‘fair’ .
Rate and track your sessions and surf checks and grow your ​personal ​surf ​journal. BUIO App is a smart surf log. At the same time you can keep track of the current swells, wave heights, local tide and wind via live buoy and weather data reporting.

Individualized surf forecast to beat the crowds

BUIO App​© saves your sessions and surf checks , learns ​from your ratings ​and suggests a good spot for your next session based on your individual likes and preferences.
