surfline rocks new web cams for the obx

For all of us that live on the OBX, knowing what the ocean is doing is part of our everyday: we all keep an eye on the weather, and lately live webcams have made keeping an eye on the ocean as easy as going online.

Surfline has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best of the online Outer Banks surf forecasting sites. They’re not sitting on their laurels over there either, having just added seven new cameras to show conditions and created ways to make their reporting even more specific to each area.

“Surfline is proud to announce further expansion of our East Coast camera network with seven new high definition cams in the Virginia-Outer Banks region. This region recently went through a reorganization, separating the Outer Banks into the Northern Outer Banks and Hatteras Island to make three (including Virginia) distinct forecasting and reporting sub-regions. This allows greater focus on the unique traits of each of the sub-regions, like preferred swell direction, surf size, and wind direction.

Not only is the region revered as one of the best stretches of surf on the East Coast, it also holds a little extra meaning for the Surfline crew. Our East Coast forecasting office is located centrally in Nags Head, NC and the region is home to three of our forecasters, plus a handful of other employees grew up or lived in the area at some point in their lives. With seventeen HD cams, twenty one if you count those on Hatteras Island, we now have live video coverage spanning from VaBch through the Outer Banks that the NSA should be envious of!”


More surf cams and what looks to be even better reporting on surf condition from Surfline.
