Hawaii-made Surfer Budies App Bears Benefits Beyond the Surf

Share Article

A new Hawaii-created application for mobile devices connects surfing buddies via the ether so they can meet up IRL (in real life) and get live surf reports from beach, deals and discounts on surf accessories, coffee and more

Surfer Buddies LLC, in conjunction with Ikayzo, is proud to introduce an innovative way to access location-based surf related content including live updates from the beach, surf reports, crowd and beach conditions, hazards, shops, bars, restaurants, lodging, and special deals for our users. We are focused on creating an enhanced user experience that positions information formerly only available from a combination of web searches, TV and print ads together in the palm of your hands.

“I built this company to better utilize technology for the purpose of creating value and community for surfers and vendors,” says Surfer Buddies CEO Ignacio Fleishour. “As an avid outdoor adventurer, surf enthusiast, and world traveler, I realized how much easier it would be to have information readily available and organized while planning trips. Our company is all about making things better for local surfers including Hawaii’s underprivileged keiki. To further this goal, we allocate a percentage of our proceeds to fund scholarships that enable Hawaii’s future surfers to travel and surf the world alongside learning about the management and business side of surfing." Ignacio muses, “Growing up in Makaha… I wish somebody would have helped me reach for those dreams. Now I can do that for others.”

For the next month Hawaii advertisers are being offered an introductory rate for sponsoring the app. This is something only Hawaii businesses can take advantage of as this will not be offered anywhere else in the world. In the 2nd quarter of 2011, Surfer Buddies LLC plans to expand to the West and East Coasts, Japan, Europe, India, Australia, Mexico, as well as Central and South America. This is your opportunity to introduce your local Hawaii products and services to the rest of the world.

For new users, we are offering a special introductory price of $0.99 through the end of February. After this introductory period, the app’s regular price of $2.99 is well worth its weight in gold as the app enables users to take advantage of special discounts at some exciting featured locations. For example, get a free deck pad when you buy a new board at Aloha Board Shop, a savings of $25 to $35. Or purchase a regular coffee for only $1.00 at Papa Luck’s Coffee Shop when you present a Surfer Buddies coupon. It is easy to see how quickly you can recoup the cost of the app. New coupons and great deals are added everyday, delivering instantaneous savings to users.

Whether you are in need of the latest surf report, hazards, conditions, discounts, board repairs and rentals, places to stay or eat after surfing the waves, and of practical directions and advice, Surfer Buddies wants you to have access to real time information that has been reviewed and used by others. “Given the current state of technology, the future is all about being connected to what you need anywhere, anytime,” says Fleishour. “Granting access to reliable, relevant, location-based information is our goal.” Visit us at http://surferbuddies.com.
