Solspot bringing DVR features to your Surf Camera.

Surf and Beach Cameras are everywhere. If you paddle out at a well-known spot there is a good chance that someone at home will be watching you catch waves. Well watching the surf live is awesome, but what if you could actually watch your session later that day? Or even pull up your surf day a week later when your buddy is calling that last swell double-overhead and you just want to "remind him" that it was only 4-5 feet? Well the Gang here at is rolling out a DVR feature for your surf camera. 

 Solspot introduces the first ever surf camera with 15 minute user controlled playback. Well, actually we are launching 4 of them. 

 Starting August 24th the following surf breaks will have the feature on their FREE HD Surf Cams:

This enables you to get 15 mins of uninterrupted surf cam with the ability to pause, rewind, and fast forward.  

It’s so obvious we can’t believe we didn't think of it earlier but hey, better late than never right? The concept is very simple. Think of turning on your TV 15 minutes into a DVR of a TV program. You watch a 15 second commercial then get the ability to control the next 15 minutes of wave footage. You pick which waves you see. Want to see one again, rewind. Look like a lull, fast forward a few mins to the next set. The entire Solspot team is excited to test the technology on 4 breaks…to start. 

 Additional beaches will follow based on your feedback. Like it? Hate it? Love it? Don’t care? Let us know through the website!
