Two Player is now available.  Buy it now from the home page, or from Steam, or from Itch.io.

Two player is awesome fun.  Change to two player in the game menu (esc) and you'll get a split screen for the two players.  You need two Xbox controllers to play, then you can travel around together or separately, surf at the same spots, or at different ones, catch the same wave or different ones, run each other over with jet skis, or watch the other player surf.  But, what you are going to want to do is play the other player in a contest.  There are timed contests where you can choose how many scores count.  Choices are from 1 min to 30 min, and you can have from 1 to 10 wave scores count.  Wave score is determined by flaky judges based on number and quality of schwacks, length of ride, speed on the wave, size of the wave, and the speed of the wave (difficulty).  The scores are displayed as you play a contest.  To start a contest, go to the main menu with esc or the menu button on the controller.  Choose contest, and set your time and number of wave scores that count.  Number of scores means that you can catch as many waves during the contest as you want but only the number you choose will count.  For example you choose two wave scores. If you catch 3 waves only the top two will be added together as your score, and the third is thrown out.  As long as you take off or stand on a wave before the time is at zero your score will count.  There are no disqualification rules, so this may lead to a lot of cheating and full contact surfing, but we'll see if there's any complaints about that.  Maybe we'll have snakes getting eaten by sharks.

Try it out and let me know what you think.  Also post videos of your two player games.

Changing players is not allowed currently as I make new players.  It will be available again soon.

 There is now a cheat button "Y" that puts your player at the takeoff spot ready to paddle and catch the next wave when it comes.  It's available at the 3 beginner breaks.  Makes it much easier for beginners to learn and get on a wave sooner, and is good for practicing surfing.

The surfing was changed slightly.  Let me know if you notice a difference.  It is easier to make a hard top turn.  You also will land faster.  No more floating away so much when you hit the lip too early.  Technically the center of gravity was moved back toward the tail for top smacks.

Here's another video of two player.  The surfing is not that good because I only have one player to test it playing both surfers.
