Smart Clip Editor

Take a look at the following video demo for more information on how to use Smart Clips:

We also have these articles that will help explain how to access Rewind and download clips:

Instead of having to meticulously watch 10-minute clips (or remember what time you caught a wave) quickly skip between surfed waves to find your clips. Once you’ve found your wave in the Smart Rewinds, our Smart Cams will automatically clip the video for you to the right length - whether your wave was 5 seconds or 1 minute.

To use this, find the Smart Rewind clip using the instruction listed above, and select Clip under the cam player:

Smart Clips shows a graph that represents the waves captured by the camera over the 10 minute period. Each 'dot' represents a wave starting and are colored to indicate whether a wave was ridden or not. Clicking a wave dot will take you to that time, so you can watch the Cam Rewind from that point.

Once you've found the wave you'd like to download and save, click Select & Preview at the bottom right of the screen:

Adjust the clip length by clicking and dragging the yellow bars on Clip Preview timeline:


Then click Save to download the clip to your device!

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 data due to visibility issues such as fog or glare, or other technical issues. This can result in periods without any data.
