Web Cams

I’ve been on the hunt for some good webcams of the surf, aka surfcams, and so far I’ve only managed to find one in Blouburgstrand. It gives you a good idea of what’s going on though.

Thanks to Rob in the comments who let me know about this page that pulls together a bunch of web cams: http://www.xplorer.co.za/local/webcams/

Blouburgstrand Webcam (Vodacom moved it here, Click on “Beach” Then “Bloubergstrand”. They made the image much smaller so it’s not quite as useful anymore)

This web cam seems promising, you can check the surf in the foreground: http://www.tablemountainview.com/

As per the comments below, if you have a Blackberry or Android device you can download an app and have the webcams on your phone. Check it out here: http://www.beachwatch.co.za

    With regards to your webcam issue, I am working with a company that is trying to place cameras around Cape Town’s beaches for people to view surf sites (free download!). Its a new technology called vixxl, and would enable anyone with a cellphone to view the surf sites live on their cellphones.

    Would something like this help out?

  2. http://www.beachwatch.co.za is now live! However the cams are only accessible via the mobile app which only caters for BlackBerry and Android devices at present. This app has fast become the most valuable one on my phone! Epic, safe surfing chaps.
