Johnny on the Spot isn’t just another forecasting tool or surf guide. Instead it is an app that allows you to record the exact conditions at any given time. Take a picture of the waves and to-the-minute data about swell, wind, tide and location are stamped directly on the image. Rate the images, make comments, and you have a detailed diary entry of the waves you just surfed.
We completely understand. We’re surfers too and we have designed Johnny on the Spot with the emphasis on it being a surfer’s private diary. Sharing options with a select group of surf buddies will be available in future versions, but the default setting is that the information you gather about your favourite spots stays private.
Don’t worry. The camera on your phone will still take a time and location stamp. When you return to signal just open the app again and any photos that you have taken with Johnny on the Spot will be automatically updated with the correct information. Clever, eh? (Make sure you do this before midnight though otherwise all will be lost!)

You don’t have to share your data with anyone. Johnny on the Spot is simply a tool that allows you to record those perfect days so you can have a better idea of when they’re going to happen again. We’re surfers too and we completely understand why you might want to keep that secret.
