Beginners often have a hard time learning the complex motions of surfing. Shorebreak offers simplified and animated video sequences to understand surfing - at home, at the beach or directly in the line-up. 

iPad with analysis tool

Motion analysis with the iPad-Sensors

Shorebreak uses the motion sensors inside the iPad (GPS, X-/Y-/Z-Accelerometers) to keep track and record your entire motion. Showing you the right key-point to stand up on your surfboard and letting you review your data after your ride.

With the integrated auto-located weather forecast you are able to keep track of wind, wave, swell height and direction. Know before you go: Check your favorite spot from home or work up to 9 hours before.

About the Shorebreak App

The way of learning new things has radically changed over the past couple of years. The classic teacher student situation is getting replaced by modern technology pared with intelligent software, supported by growing communities.

The Shorebreak App and Dock is a product, that has developed from this change. It combines e-learning videos, simplified and understandable, with modern technology, like the accelerometer and gps sensor.

"This made me wonder if there was a way to bring the learned content to the place you actually need it. Which in this chase would be in the water."

Most beginners in surfing are struggling with getting through the whitewater near the beach. Once they're outside in the lineup waiting for the waves, a lot of the theory learned seems to have been forgotten, through all the stress they've experienced getting out.

This made me wonder if there was a way to bring the learning content to the place you actually need it. Which in this chase would be inside the water. This can be determined as the hour of birth of the Shorebreak App. Through my bachelor thesis I had the chance to bring these ideas to live.

 

 

The Shorebreak App has three main features:

  • It helps you understand and learn the complex motions of surfing with the help of simplified e-learning animations.
  • Secondly it is able to analyze the motions of the surfboard, helping you to get the right timing on getting up or reviewing the entire run
  • The location-based wave and weather forecast helps predicting the surroundings, including wind, wave, swell height and direction.

By now the groundwork is done, the app is running, the prototype built. Now we need people to make it happen. Help by spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. Mail or contact me directly. Hang loose, Don
