Surfing With Your iPhone

Date: Mar 06, 2013

Move Over Beach Boys, there's a New Surf Sound in Town!

With their tight harmonies and catchy melodies, the Beach Boys took surf music to the top of the charts when their first album, Surfin' Safari, was released in 1962. But, even with the best 1962 technology, fans couldn't enjoy the music on the beach, let alone while they were out on their surfboards.

With the iPhone and a top quality waterproof iPhone case from LifeProof, that all changes. Today, you can take your favorite tunes with you no matter where your surfin' safari takes you. The key is the incredible waterproof protection you get with a LifeProof case.

"Exactly how waterproof is a waterproof iPhone case?" you ask. LifeProof iPhone cases are designed to deliver waterproof protection down to 6.6 feet. While surfers might not want to take their iPhones out when they're riding Mavericks on a big day, this level of waterproof protection is perfect for most days out on the ocean. By the way, if you're surfing Mavericks, messing around with your iPhone isn't a good idea anyway.

And when there's a break between sets, log into one of your accounts that delivers video streaming. If the breaks aren't big enough to bother with, you can always cue up a classic surf movie like The Endless Summer and pass a little time out on your board. Or if you're playing hooky from work, you might want to answer a few emails. Just sayin'…

Of course, you know your iPhone will get wet while surfing. That's sort of the whole point, isn't it? So, why not make the best of that and use the great camera in you phone to capture some of those moments on video? Put yourself in a place to record your surfing buddy getting barreled. Maybe you'll make the next Endless Summer with your iPhone and a LifeProof iPhone case.

As the tide goes out on this article, let's hit the high points one more time.
