Surf/beach web cams-favourite

I am always interested in looking at beach cams before I head out. I thought that we could start a thread on your favourite web cam sites that you use regularly. The link below is the one that I use most often.

Cheers

I don't surf Ogunquit Maine very often but I like these cams because they are high quality. The surf can be really good here but the conditions have to be just right.

I call my local camera  "no-surf cam" because it's mostly flat here   but the view could be very nice sometimes

It's a pretty view from S'cut.  ...we have a local 'surf cam' that shoots straight into the ocean over the sand - Zero perspective.  Why bother?  There's a Tamarindo cam that too wide but still aspirational when the water here is 40f.

You also have the Good Harbor Beach cam.

I can't get the Long Beach cam to go to full screen, but the Good Harbor Beach does.

I have a lot of webcam sites with streaming video that I look at everyday. But my favorite streaming webcam for the upper Texas coast is the one at Surfside, Texas.

It is a camera where you can actually take control of the camera and move it to the various locations in it's drop down menu. The length of time you can control the camera is one minute. The camera control button is on the "lower" right corner of the video. The location button is in the "upper" right corner of the video but you can only see the location menu once you have control of the camera.

There is one slight problem for some of you though. This site I "think" still uses Flash so if you don't have Flash installed, you won't be able to see the streaming webcam. It may have both Flash and HTML5, but I can't be certain it does have HTML5.

For linux, I use the 64 bit Pale Moon browser version 28.8.2.1 running in 64 bit linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia) Xfce so I might have both Flash and  HTML5 installed by default in my linux Mint distro.

Almost forgot, we've got some foggy weather down at Surfside this morning at the time of this posting.

Nightwing. That is crazy! Being able to remotely control a public video cam from around the world. Wow!

Texas has a lot of streaming webcams where a person can control the camera if someone else isn't using it. Below is a streaming fishing webcam of the 91st Street Galveston Fishing Pier where I can take control of the camera and look at the "East View" and "West View" so I can see the waves going towards the beach.

The above place is a good place to sup surf at. BTW, the camera takes about 7 seconds to move after one chooses a position.

I still like to check this one, mostly for old time sake, it's been a long time.

Bad news for me. The Saltwater Recon site, with the 14 streaming webcams I watch, these webcams are now by "subscription". Bummer for me. And it is a double bummer because this includes my favorite webcam of them all, the Surfside Beach cam.

So it looks like I just have  to rely on the free streaming webcams that are still available to me from the Chamber of Commerce in Galveston, Texas.

On a side note, I've been on a continuing hunt for a streaming webcam for Port Aransas, Texas which is on the middle coast of Texas. Port Aransas has some nice waves. Well, there is one "now". It is now at the link below. Best viewed in full screen mode.
