A Surfline Premium subscription provides full access to our camera network and extended forecast. Check out the table below to see what other features are included with Surfline Premium.

Free trials

Free trials are reserved for our audience who have never tried Premium before. We reserve the right to determine free trial eligibility per our terms of use.

Free trial eligibility will be noted before checkout.

Joining Surfline Premium

If you haven’t tried Premium before, you are eligible for a 7-day free trial of the annual plan. Follow the link below.

surfline.com/upgrade

1. Choose your billing term. In the screenshot below, I can see I am not eligible for a free trial. Other subscription plans are noted below, but they may not offer different billing terms. Likewise, if you have a discount code, there is a button at the bottom of the page - again, you likely won't have billing term options.

2. Enter card information and review order. You'll then be taken to our third-party billing system, Stripe, for this. If there is any issue with currency shown, contact support@surfline.com. Any error after hitting Pay and Subscribe will likely need to be discussed with your bank or card provider.

3. You'll be taken through a setup/onboarding process. After you hit Get Started, you can find a Skip button in the top right corner of the slides.
