This week, Nick Peterson joins Coach Chris to talk about his app, Lazy Surfer. It's an AI powered surf log that you can use to log all the info from a surf session. You give the session a rating and over time it learns your preferences! Crazy. But even without the AI aspect, this is a great tool just for the sake of collecting info from your sessions and beginning to learn how certain swell and condition characteristics ultimately unfold at your local surf spot.
