This is not the first butt plug review that I’ve written, but it has definitely been one of the most interesting ones. Today I’m going to review an anal vibrator created by the Picobong Company. The Picobong is a sister company of a popular brand called LELO and it has used IndieGoGo campaign to launch four brand new sex toys that are controlled via an app. These sex toys include the Blowhole, the Diver, the Lifeguard, and the Surfer. In this review, we will be talking only about the Remoji Surfer.

In the past, I’ve always thought that IndieGoGo was used by very small companies that needed money to launch their revolutionary product. It appears that now titans of the industry such as LELO are using this website to increase the range of products that they sell by creating a sister company and launching an appealing campaign. I wouldn’t call it fair, but then again why not?

The Specs

The Surfer looks pretty much like any other butt plug with a girth of 4.5” and an insertable length of 4.75”. The bulbous mid-section and the curve of this toy are designed for P-Spot stimulation, making the Surfer an obvious choice for this kind of play.

The Surfer is a very firm toy as it is primarily made from ABS plastic with only a thin coating of silicone covering its shaft, while its base is left exposed. The silicone has a luxurious matte finish that creates just the right amount of surface friction without attracting any lint or dust. The surface of the Surfer responds well to water-based lubricants, while oil-based and silicone-based lubricants should be avoided.

The silicone from which the Surfer is made is non-porous, doesn’t contain phthalates, and is completely safe for your body. This makes it one of the finest materials for making anal toys. The only downside is that silicone retains some of the anal odor.

The PicoBong Surfer is marketed as a luxury sex toy, which means that, just like any other luxury toy, it has some nifty features:

  • The Surfer is guaranteed to withstand being submerged to the depth of 1 m of water for 30 minutes.
  • 1-year warranty. If the Surfer stops functioning for no apparent reason, it may be replaced within 1 year of its purchase.
  • USB rechargeable. By using the port that is conveniently located on the base of the Surfer, you can charge it by plugging it into your laptop, desktop, or use an electrical outlet with a special adapter.

The Surfer has only a single button which can turn it on and off located on the insertable portion of this toy. This may seem like a horrible mistake until you realize that this toy can be and should be controlled via the Remoji app on your smartphone.

With this app, you’ll have a whole lot of fun by teasing the hell out of your partner. Simply turn on the app and use simple gestures to fine-tune the experience. In the palm of your hand, you have the means to effortlessly vary the speed, switch patterns, or turn on the “lightning mode” that will give your partner a sudden jolt of full power.

These sudden jolts of pleasure are perfect if you’re into BDSM and wish to give your Sub a reward. This feature makes the Surfer the most effective and intuitive vibrating butt plug that we had the pleasure of using.

With the butt plug fully controlled by the Remoji app, I was free to caress my boyfriend’s shaft, which became even more exciting once we tried synchronizing our movement to the beat of the Remoji.

In use

My boyfriend was completely satisfied with the sensations that the Surfer was able to give him. The toy is quite large, so my boyfriend had to take some time to warm himself up before we could get to the fun part. Nevertheless, once the toy was completely inserted, my boyfriend found it to be very comfortable and effective at stimulating his prostate.

The vibrations of the Surfer have a buzzy quality and gain a certain depth and resonance when the toy is fully inserted. The power of the vibrations was more than enough for the both of us (when I used it as a clit vibe). My boyfriend especially liked the different patterns that the Surfer could create. Each pattern was completely different from the rest and had its own special appeal.

As a result, the orgasms that my boyfriend had with this toy were incredibly strong and lasted much longer than usual.

I would also like to mention that the base of the Surfer deserves some special attention. It’s large, firm and ergonomically designed to be as comfortable to use as possible. It also features a little ring that helps with the insertion and retrieval.

The downsides

Yet, of course, no sex toy is perfect, and even the Surfer has a few flaws.

  • The controls. Yes, the Surfer was designed to be used with the Remoji app which has all the needed controls and makes using it very convenient. Yet without the app, this toy is pretty much useless. They should have at least added some sort of remote, considering the hefty price tag of this toy. It’s not a problem if you were aware of its app-reliance from the start, but it could be a major problem if you didn’t.
  • As I mentioned above, my boyfriend couldn’t just pop it in before warming himself up. The size might not be scary-big, yet it can still be too large for beginners. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this toy to people who are new to anal play.
  • Regretfully, the silicone retains the anal odor. This problem is not exclusive to the Surfer, as all silicone anal toys have this downside, and there is nothing really that can be done about it.

Final Thoughts

I’ve got to say that my boyfriend and I have thoroughly enjoyed the Surfer. Even though there are many other remote-controlled butt plugs, the Remoji app simply makes this toy a lot more fun to use. It is currently our most favorite vibrating anal plug, and considering our vast experience this title shouldn’t be taken lightly.
