"I’m a big iPhone and iPad geek so it’s great having a surfing app. It's the perfect game to kill down time." - Mick Fanning (2 x ASP World Champion)

Surfing is a lifestyle. For many it’s a way of life. It’s the chance to explore the world and chase adventure.
The opportunity to experience the unknown, seek something new, discover the undiscovered and search for fun most only dream of…
Tilt Movement: Live The Search utilizes the iPhone's "Tilt Movement" accelerometer technology, allowing the player to control the movement of your surfer by tilting the iPhone left or right.
Tilting to the right will make your surfer turn right and tilting left will turn them left - both on the face of the wave and above the lip when performing airs.
Swipe Controller: While many iPhone games use up-down-left-right controller pads, Live The Search features a high-tech swipe controller,
which holds the key to performing airs and making turns on a wave.
Use your finger to make directed swipes on screen to perform maneuvers, such as cutbacks on the wave and grabs and flips in the air.
Stall & Floater Buttons: On the left of the screen are the stall and floater buttons, which help position you in the right spot on the wave when you're lining up for a big maneuver.
The Stall button will slow you down on the wave and help positioning.
The Floater button will help you float the lip of the wave with your board when you're riding high and close to the barrel.
