Decided to pick this up myself

More of a surf sim game with you required to stand up etc. pretty tricky with some tricks that are quite annoying to complete at times, but more realistic ones that we can do in real life. Graphics and animation is pretty dodgy, but more of a career mode than bobble surfer. Of they improve the animation certainly and make the graphics a bit clearer this will be a big winner

Hey there. I wrote the game. So firstly, thanks very much to those who have bought the game. Much appreciated

Here's a video on YouTube.

You guys mentioned a few things. So I'll ask...

What sort of graphics would look less "rough" to you?

You want lots of moves, more surfers etc?

Hope you can provide some good feedback and I will incorporate it in the next update.

Details on the next update are as followings.
  • More animations / moves
  • Extra location.
  • Faster frame rate.
  • More challenges.
  • More diverse location graphics.
  • Possibly another surfer (female) but more likely polish on the current surfer such as board designs and new wetsuits.
