The new Surfline homepage

We've recently launched a new "home" for Surfline.

The new homepage makes it easier than ever to check cams, plan your next surf, catch up on content, and access the Surfline shop

What's new? Top to bottom

  • Cam carousel. See live cams at your top spots, as soon as you open the app
  • Forecast & Outlook. Compare forecasts, side-by-side, to quickly identify where is working & when.
  • Stories. A preview of the existing News tab. View recent articles, stories, and videos.
  • Shop. Find surf essentials like wetsuits, boards, fins, and more in the shop.

Cam carousel

Your favorite spots (in the order you have configured) are the first thing you see, with auto-playing cams in a horizontal carousel. Where we don't have cams, we will show a satellite image of the spot.

Reorganize your favorites to make the most of the new homepage

Head to your account settings and hit Favorites. Here is the direct link:

You'll also see Edit Favorites buttons after clicking View All on either the Cam Carousel or the Forecast Outlook tools.

Bringing your top 5 spots to the top of your favorites list will bring the new homepage to life.

Forecast Outlook

The home screen will only show your top 5 favorites. Hit View All to see compare forecasts for every spot in your favorites list.


We show a rating color for the morning, afternoon and evening with a single surf height reading for the day. There is a grey line behind each spot which will tell you whether the surf height is increasing, decreasing or holding.

Sub-region filtering

After hitting View All from the Cam Carousel or Forecast Outlook, you can now filter the favorites shown by geographical region.

If going on a trip, or honing in on some promising conditions, get rid of the favorites you have saved elsewhere. You can select multiple sub-regions.

The sub-regions that show are based on the favorites you have saved.


Scroll below the Cam Carousel & Forecast Outlook to find our article covers over a black background, which will open a mini webpage for you to read in full.

Hitting View All will take you to the library of categorised articles you'll be familiar with.

Where is the cam Rewind? There is no longer a link under the spot's title. Look for a Rewind symbol on any cam player.

Can I get the old homepage? No — this update has been launched across all accounts & platforms. But we're really interested in knowing what it is you're missing. Write to and let them know what you think. The more specific you can be with your suggestion/request, the further we can take your comments!

Where can I find editorial content? News stories? Keep scrolling down until you see a black background. Recent stories are listed horizontally. Hit View All to be taken to the library you're familiar with.
