To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Good to hear Ben McCartney's surf reports! Gives tide data too, which is useful. Sometimes the skill doesn't understand what beach you want, but in general it's a really easy way to hear today's surf, tomorrow's surf, or the 3-day forecast.
I can't say that I hate it as I haven't managed to get it up and running. I've enabled this skill and when asking "Alexa, ask Coastal watch when is low tide?" I get the usual 'dong' or 'sorry, I'm not sure' Anyone else came across this issue? any tips or tricks other than disabling/enabling this skill?
I can finally check the surf with my eyes closed! I love asking for my surf report and planning my weekend surfs while I cook dinner. My wife checks the tide daily to plan when to take the kids swimming. Recommend this to any beach goer. Very useful.
