Started in 1997, the NJSurfer.com web cam is the first and longest continually operating beach cam in New Jersey. Operated as a hobby by Ray Smith, it was setup to view the beach conditions to go surfing or sailing. The location is 15 Ocean Avenue in Monmouth Beach, NJ. at 40.32433 Degs. N, 73.97602 Degs. W. Local surfers soon found out about the site and the word spread. Now the site receives 750,000 hits a week.
New components are added as new technologies develop. Streaming video was considered as an option but the still photo downloaded every minute offers a much clearer picture and is much more reliable.
The camera is an Olympus C-7070 operated by Erdman Video System VM95 software. The site was designed, developed and is hosted by NJSurfer.net.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. The site is completely non-profit and is supported by our sponsor, www.BoxerBriefs.com . Please spread the word about the site and everyone can always have an Ocean View.
