Why do some spots have a dawn-patrol video (daily recorded video)?

Some spots are either too remote or cannot provide a suitable location for a fixed, live streaming camera.  For these locations, a video shooter will take a 2-3 minute video each morning.  Premium users see a high quality, large video for the full duration, while Free users see a smaller version for 30-seconds.  Below is a list of spots that have daily recorded video:


  • Rincon & Mondos - seasonal from May to October
  • Salt Creek
  • Trestles
  • San Onfre
  • Scripps
  • Windansea
  • Bird Rock
  • Ocean Beach


  • Ft. Pierce
