Whatever happened to watching the weather, knowing the swell and wind conditions that made your favorite break work, and just putting in the time?  I hate the notion that we are all guaranteed instant gratification, entitled to know at any instant where conditions are best, and do it all for free.  Sure, good surf spots were always crowded, but now when a new swell arrives, they are instantly crowded.  Gone are the days when the local guys who check it religiously every morning get rewarded with a few hours of good waves before the huddled masses descend on it.  I stand by it:Beach cams suck.

I know people who live and die by the beach cam and therefore often miss the good days.

There is no substitute for going to the beach and looking for yourself.

So for all those who watch beach cams, keep watching  :P

Patterson basically put out a beach cam for my local favorite break not long ago that included some friends of the Carcarchadon variety-now its not as crowded!

...had to hack a website to give you this weaky leak.
these are my home breaks to the immediate south. hollywood (osterman) beach in the foreground, foster beach in the middle, then wilson/montrose (where i teach sup) in the background. you may be able to recognize the chicago skyline in the distance. this image updates every 5 or 10 minutes (upon refresh) and occasionally focused on the "pride" side of things when it gets hot out there.
