Soul Surfer’s FAQ

How do I install the forecasting complications or Watch Faces?

You can install our official Dawn Patrol Watch Faces from the app. These Watch Faces are available for Apple Watch Series 4, 5, 6 and SE. You’ll need iOS 14 and WatchOS 7 for this feature to work. You can find the Watch Faces on the Soul Surfer section or on the app when you go to Settings > Forecasting.

For Apple Watch Series 2 and 3 or to customise your Watch Face to configure your own perfect Surf Watch:

  • Press the Digital Crown to go to the Watch Face.
  • Firmly press the display.
  • Swipe left or right to choose your favourite Watch Face, then tap Customize.
  • Swipe all the way to the left. You can now select the position where you want the Dawn Patrol complication to appear
  • Use the digital crown to scroll through the available complications and select DAWN PATROL

Please note: For our surf forecasting you need to have a Soul Surfer subscription.
After you installed the complications on your Watch face, it may take several minutes for the complication to load the forecast. Sometimes this can be forced by tapping the complication (which will open the app) or by changing the “Forecasting settings” in the app (i.e. change the water level unit)

The Surf Forecast is not loading on my Apple Watch

Make sure you have a valid Soul Surfer subscription. You can see whether you have a valid subscription on the App Store on your iPhone:

  • Open the App Store app on your phone
  • Click on your profile image
  • Click on “Subscriptions”

If you do, please check that your subscription works correctly on your iPhone. You can confirm this by going to a spot in the Spots section of the iPhone app, or by adding a Widget to your Home screen. If you see the forecast is loading, your subscription works correctly on the phone. However, if you see a “Become a Soul Surfer” message, something went wrong. Best is to tap on the Soul Surfer message and tap on RESTORE EARLIER PURCHASE. This will recover your subscription, you won’t be charged again.

Still experiencing problems?

  • Install the latest Dawn Patrol update on the App Store
  • Restart your Watch and Phone
  • Install the complications on your watch face if you haven’t already
  • Make sure your phone and watch are connected
  • On the Dawn Patrol app on your phone: Go to SETTINGS > FORECASTING and CHANGE the location to another spot or one of the metrics settings (feet/meter), which will trigger the data feed
  • Give it a few moments (max 5 min.) for the iPhone and Watch to synchronise data. Opening the Dawn Patrol app on your Apple Watch may speed up this process

This all above should force the Watch and Phone to exchange data and show you the tides. Please reach out to us if you need further assistance.
