I LOVE SURFING. I was actually inspired by my sister and my friend who both surf with me but are looking for very different conditions. My sister hates the crowds in SoCal, but my friend who just began surfing was looking to find surf buddies. Thus Surf Alone Together was born!
What it does
Surf Alone Together allows its users to access surf forecasts as well as the live surf environment, that is, how many people are in the water. We also allow users at the beach to upload photos of the ocean to provide live surf conditions to those thinking about hitting the water.
How I built it
We built it in a team of 11 using React, .Net, and SQL. We also utilized IBM's Visual Recognition tech.
Challenges I ran into
We want to add more features!!!! But we're at a hackathon ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm proud of all our team has accomplished at all of our first hackathon EVER.
What I learned
IBM has some sick stuff out there.
What's next for Surf Alone Together
Right now, we are a web app, but we are planning to transition SurfAloneTogether into a fully fledged mobile app.
