Smart Rewinds shows a Wave Timeline that represents the waves captured by the camera over the most recent 30 minute period. Take a look at this video demo for more information on Wave Timeline:

Each bar in the Wave Timeline represents 15 seconds, and the height of the bar indicates the size of the biggest wave that broke during that interval. Bars are colored yellow to indicate if a wave was ridden during that interval, and grey to indicate if there was a wave that was not ridden during that interval. Blank spaces indicate no waves were captured during that time period.

Clicking a bar will take you to that interval, so you can watch the Cam Rewind from that point.

Errors and delays

It takes time to process the camera data, so you may see a gap in the graph below the most recent video footage while it is processing.

Occasionally, cams aren’t able to gather wave data due to visibility issues such as fog or glare, or other technical issues. This can result in periods without any wave data or none at all.
