It’s like Yelp for Surfers

Surfr allows users to document their surf life.

The latest version affords users the ability to add underserved communities to the DISCOVER map by simply dropping a pin and tagging the location with a social good category like Clean Water or Medical Supplies. Likewise, surfers can add travel resources to the map like: hostels, cafes, bars, and other surf spots that aren’t currently demarcated.

Surfr Stories – Happy Walls Director Carly Mejeur

Surfr Story Interview by Joe Pregadio  I’ve had this recurring daydream, probably since I was old enough to start watching the news and experience real life.
