Our team of surfing enthusiasts and weather experts provide real-time, live surf conditions using our web-enabled surf cams to bring you the very latest in surf conditions at your favorite spots in California, Hawaii, and Central America. Our surf cams offer stunning high-definition views of popular breaks along the coastline, letting you decide if surf conditions are right for you to head to the beach. Surfers in Southern California and beyond rely on our free service to avoid hazardous conditions and to get a glimpse into wave heights, all in up-to-the-minute fashion.
Our team of surf analysts also provide accurate and timely surf reports for breaks throughout California. Using a network of NOAA buoys throughout the Pacific Ocean, surfers and watersports enthusiasts can check prevailing swells, water temperatures, and wind speeds. Tide times and wind direction play a big role in how surfing conditions develop, and this information is displayed in real time. Surf forecasts are a crucial component of the surfing lifestyle, and our exclusive looks at upcoming predictions help you plan your beach trips.
