Started in 1997, the NJSurfer.com webcam 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. New components are added as new technologies develop. The site was designed, developed and is hosted by NJSurfer.net. The site is completely non-profit. Please spread the word about the site and everyone can always have an Ocean View.
