Triathlon review

21 Days Later - Mentawais

Sunset SurfBuoy Height Text Alerts Trial Service

Whilst its great to be able to check the surf so easily when you are near a computer with internet access, and even using WAP etc on your mobile it still involves you remembering to check and actually doing it..

We have come up with the solution! Sunset Surf is now trialling a FREE buoy height and wind text alert service.

Currently this is just in trial to see how usefull people find this. Parameters that you can specify are: Buoy number, wave height, wind direction and wind speed. So for example when a buoy hits 10ft and the wind direction is Northerly you will get a text each hour those conditions are met. You can also specify the time you wish to be alerted, i.e dont get texts at 3am in the morning!

Currently this service is only available in the UK and to UK Mobile phones.

If you are interested in taking part of this trial, please drop us a note using the contact us form on the left and if suitable we will arrange to get you added!

If it works out sucessfully we will bring it online as a full service.
