Thanks Yeltzman for keeping up on this
The interface seems ok but in the end the wave simulation and timing are just not realistic.
I noticed the waves roll in way too fast and don't seem to build up like real sets coming in do. I simulated a slower speed by reducing playback speed on the video to 0.75 and IMO it looked much more realistic right away. Too bad they went for arcade style instead of simulator.
The water physics looks like from 10years ago, if they can make grass blades like in the recent grass demo I saw posted here somewhere than they should be able to make realistic waves and water. I refuse to believe thats the best they could do as far as water looking realistic.
I might actually consider picking up this one anyway as I am desperate for a new surfing game if they tweak it some.
Still far from what I envisioned for my Surf Pro simulator.
