What?! Your favorite camera is down! How are you supposed to “know before you go?!” While we always encourage you to reach out to our support team if you’re having trouble with the site, you can instantly check the status of a down camera here.
Why do Surfline’s cameras go down? It varies. There may be an issue with the internet provider or power source. Sometimes, construction can cause a camera to be switched off temporarily. Or, the camera may be damaged by a storm.
Our international camera operations team works tirelessly to ensure 99% camera uptime and to keep Surfline’s cameras clean --no easy task when you consider they are exposed to high winds and blasted by salt water and sand 365 days a year.
Notice something unusual on a Surfline cam? Want to request a camera cleaning, a different zoom, angle or camera pan setting? Send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
