The online surf media and surf forecasting service Wavescape have launched the Big
Swell SMS Alert service. This innovative mobile service is a first for South Africa
and delivers an SMS message to Wavescape readers who wish to know when the next
big ocean swell is due to hit South Africas shoreline.
“We are really excited about the potential of our new SMS alert service. It gives
you a day’s notice of when a big swell is due to arrive at your stretch of coast
without having to check your usual channels for extreme ocean swell conditions,”
says Steve Pike of Wavescape.co.za.
Pike is well known for his quirky weekly email surf forecast reports and surf journalism.
He has also provided spot-on surf forecasting services to a host of high profile
big wave surf events in Durban and Cape Town.
According to Pike, “There has been a surge of people subscribing on our website
for the free Big Swell Alert SMS service. We cover the western, southern and eastern
coastlines of South Africa and you can select to receive an SMS for one or several
regions. For example, surfers in Cape Town may wish to know what is happening in
Jeffreys Bay or the West Coast as well as the Cape Peninsula to better plan when
and where they will be chasing the swell. Likewise, Durban surfers may wish to keep
an eye on the Wild Coast or the Eastern Cape.”
“This SMS service is perfect for anyone who lives on the coast, and not just surfers
with a desire to surf big waves. Residents with homes next to the seafront could
especially benefit from an SMS warning them to expect heavy sea swells. In recent
years there has been an increase of storm activity that have damaged or threatened
homes exposed to high seas and big waves,” continues Pike.
Wavescape partnered with the Cape Town based global messaging company BulkSMS.com
to provide the Big Swell Alert SMS service.
“We are proud to be associated with Wavescape in launching this pioneering SMS alert
service. It builds on the SMS surf forecasting services we have developed for Wavescape
and we look forward to seeing this public broadcast service adding value to surfers
and people who interact regularly with the ocean,” says Dr Pieter Streicher, managing
director of BulkSMS.com.
The Big Swell SMS Alert service is an extension of the Wavescape Ocean Watch (WOW)
model, an online surf forecasting service that displays both open ocean and beach
specific surf conditions for the South African coastline. The Big Swell SMS Alert
is a free service offered to readers of the Wavescape website.
