Want to check out the surf at Scripps Pier. Now you can do it with a simple click of your mouse.

The Scripps Pier Cam, sponsored and powered by Surfline.com, provides a streaming HD video feed of surf north and south of the Scripps Pier. Find it at scripps.ucsd.edu/piercam, according to a press release

The camera view provides immediate information about surf and beach conditions, and the Scripps Pier Cam webpage also provides real-time coastal forecasting information from Scripps’ Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) and weather/atmosphere data from Earth Networks monitoring stations on the Scripps Pier, the release noted.

The 1,084-foot-long Scripps Pier was built in 1988 and is closed to the public. Data about ocean conditions have been taken from the pier continuously since 1916 and provide an unparalleled source of information on the coastal Pacific Ocean.

Prior to the HD cam launch, Scripps’ previous pier cam was offline for approximately seven months.
