Difficult game, but lovely graphics! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Looks and sounds great! Took me a while to get the hang of it. I think I would have preferred mouse control, like move/angle towards to mouse, as that might feel more fluid. I felt the keyboard direction changing was a bit derpy, or maybe it's just me, lol.

Nah, it's a bit derpy, you're right. Surfing might work with your gamepad (left stick and A button). I didn't do any testing with the gamepad though so none of the UI works with it.

Nice atmosphere! Though I wasn't sure how to do the jumps!

Sometimes, the screen transition effect when you lose stays, so you can't see the buttons

I love surfing games like this. Very good execution, there is so much going on at times with the sharks and the wind. Your wave art is beautiful.

Love the particles and your title image!

It's really difficult, but the graphics and sound are fantastic! I dig the simple player customization (with a random option, yay). I definitely didn't understand how tricks work, but doing jumps is fun. The game-over screen is also a little weird - sometimes the sepia fuzz doesn't go away, but I can still click invisible buttons. Didn't see any other bugs. Cool stuff. :)

Thanks, yah... there's a scene transition bug that happens sometimes. Haven't been able to find it yet.

I took a while to understand how to play but I liked the game a lot, great job!

Heyo, please let me know if it doesn't run for you... I wasn't able to test the mac or windows builds. Thanks!
