How To Get The Awesome New Unique Talking Surf Service!

Exclusive To All The World Famous Gold Coast Surf Spots.

GOLD COAST, QLD, Sept 25th 2019 -   A new FREE voice-activated service for the surfing community, has been developed locally in City of Gold Coast. SWELL BUDDY provides today’s hourly swell conditions at 20 of the Gold Coast’s iconic, world-famous surf spots. It’s fast, easy and free to use on over one billion android devices and one hundred million smart speakers. 
Swell Buddy users simply use their voice to ask Google Assistant-enabled phones and home speakers for their Gold Coast Beach. Swell Buddy responds with the current wave height, frequency and direction. This simple swell information is designed to help surfers make a quick decision if it’s worth a surf. What’s unique about this service, is it is 100% hands-free, which means it is safe to use when driving down the M1 and deciding where to surf. Users can change their choice of Gold Coast beach and also select a different time, all just by talking - no need to type or text. 

To activate SWELL BUDDY no download is needed. Users of Android phones just need to hold down the home button for a second to activate Google Assistant. iPhone users can ask Siri for the Google Assistant. Once the Assistant is active, just say “Hey Google Talk to Swell Buddy” and follow the prompts. Swell Buddy is available in the same way on all Google Home, Nest & Hub speakers and screens.

Swell Buddy is also available on all Amazon Dot, Echo and Show devices. Just ask Alexa to enable Swell Buddy. Try It - Free On Alexa 

Swell Buddy is developed by Pete Whelan. After enjoying long walks on Palm Beach, Pete wanted to create a useful service for the local surf community.
