Great app with excellent videos! (by Droopy! on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 02:51:00)
A lot of attention to detail went into this app and the workouts are versatile with plenty of ideas and variations! I enjoyed watching a video before doing a workout and loved the location option on how to prepare for different breaks!
Great, when it works (by DoubleA1414 on Mon, 25 Nov 2013 17:16:00)
App is great with all applicable surfing workouts, but it crashes all of the time and will not save workouts. If it actually worked it would be a great training app!
Great App. (by H maaan on Thu, 21 Nov 2013 12:04:00)
Update is top. I like no spoken audio. I listen to music. Solid App.
Awesome app (by Oli 88 on Wed, 20 Nov 2013 12:18:00)
I love this App. Hearing how Parko gets ready for pipe. Such a sick feature.
App doesn't work (by Rick Franks on Wed, 02 Oct 2013 04:12:00)
No audio on videos, video playback stalls on my I-phone 5 NOT STOKED!
Great app (by Acros5790 on Mon, 23 Sep 2013 05:05:00)
Wes and Joel put together killer workouts that really challenge you. App is great with videos and picture demos. Has some small glitches and a workout tracker would be nice
Good idea, bad app (by Surfandski on Tue, 17 Sep 2013 00:29:00)
This is the first time I've ever reviewed an app. This is just very poorly done. Simple, careless oversight and no attention to detail. Most features don't work. Not sure what to expect when a surfer who has no experience making apps decides to make one. I gave the befit of the doubt and assumed he had recruited some help - he didn't.
Too many bugs!! (by ghachmann on Fri, 13 Sep 2013 22:25:00)
I don't hate the app, but as much as I like the idea of this app, I have to say it's a dud. Way too many crashes. I can't see any video, which pretty much renders the app useless. Please, let people know if/how to fix that issue!
Disappointment (by Sjollivier on Fri, 13 Sep 2013 22:03:00)
Pretty weak effort... But nice idea. I'd think they would have more pride I'm the output. Complaints: Video content is short, too dark, and lacks audio. Seems more like an animated gif! Written part is too brief. So basically they don't explain in much detail and have exceedingly sketchy demonstrations. And as with other reviewers I had app crashes or freeze ups despite a modern iPhone 5 and LTE connection Come on guys - have some pride in your product. I'd willingly pay for a something that truly offers value. Now I feel a bit scammed. Bummer.
BUGS Galore! (by mcskinnyb on Fri, 06 Sep 2013 00:18:00)
Version 1.0: It'd be great to see what this app is all about, but it crashes every time I look at a video. 4 bucks for an app that you can't use? C'mon Parko! Version 1.1.0 Update: Still crashes every time I view a video. Still way too many bugs to use. Disappointing.
Very good (by spongechum on Sat, 31 Aug 2013 19:06:00)
I found this app is very useful in the gym. It has a wide variety of workouts and good pictures. The only thing bad about the app is the videos do not all work while at the gym on cell service, not wifi. When at home on my wifi the videos work great but I need to see how the exercises are done while at the gym. I am using this app to get back in shape for surfing and snowboarding (similar core workouts) and I find it very helpful. Just fix the video to work on wireless network and it'll be a 5 star easily.
Getting there (by Jeremy Reid on Wed, 28 Aug 2013 01:14:00)
It's a good start, but not great. Lots of bugs to be fixed still and a little clumsy in the gym. I wish it went more into the correct amount of sets and reps per exercise in each routine. A few changes and this could be a very powerful tool.
Awesome app (by Oli 88 on Tue, 27 Aug 2013 18:53:00)
I've been waiting for ages for a surf training app to come out. Highly quality content. Parko literally takes you through all the exercise for every wave on town. Def worth the price.
Great App. (by H maaan on Mon, 26 Aug 2013 14:00:00)
Updated sorted. Top App with clear and challenging programs in the gym. Great videos, specific training. Bring on Brazil.
Needs an update bad (by AppFan188 on Fri, 23 Aug 2013 13:47:00)
Love Parko, but... Exercises should show up in Favorites when selected, NOT a form field to fill out info. Needed fix- tag a work out you like, and be able to build custom workout plans. Looks like they released early to get promotion around Tahiti
Update Please! (by jdeneau on Fri, 23 Aug 2013 04:24:00)
Will certainly be a 5 Star once the bugs get worked out!
Fantastic App (by Duffburger on Tue, 20 Aug 2013 01:49:00)
Massive potential for this app. Combines my 2 of my favourite things. Surfing and fitness. Super useful and fun.
Bugs (by Tefa Dexter on Mon, 19 Aug 2013 22:27:00)
Lots of bugs. Needs an update. Great idea though. Get some better programmers and consider a freemium model since those of us who paid for it are bummed on the quality. Good luck!
Excellent (by JMCK1987 on Mon, 19 Aug 2013 02:25:00)
This app does a great job of explaining how to really improve your surfing. It's practical, specific for performance surfing and has loads of great video content. Parko describing every wave on tour in detail is cool.
Great idea (by stoken on Mon, 19 Aug 2013 00:55:00)
When they work out the bugs this will be great. Some videos don't work and the app crashes quite a bit. I'd give it more stars if it wasn't so buggy but its filled with great stuff.
Awesome concept. (by Oli 88 on Sun, 18 Aug 2013 14:45:00)
Great videos and cool to hear Parko tell you about every wave on tour. Update will help it but def worth it.
Glitches everywhere (by Thewhaleboat on Fri, 16 Aug 2013 03:43:00)
I really wanted to love this app and I have web waiting for a surf specific training app to come out for a long time. Unfortunately this app has so many glitches I've become frustrated when using it and stopped. The videos don't load, there is no scrubber on the video player, everything loads slowly and I can't tell the difference between workouts for pipeline and trestles. Great idea but needs a lot of work. Hopefully you guys realize it and update soon. Always looking to support surfers.
Great concept (by dtmj on Fri, 16 Aug 2013 00:59:00)
But not all the videos work and a lil buggy. Excited for this app to update.
