Surfline, Surfing’s Biggest Media Platform, Drops Into Massive Pile of Cash

Surfline started out as a 1-900 number you called to get a surf forecast. Three decades later, it’s a surf media behemoth, with paying customers shelling out $10 per month for long-range forecasts and surf cams, as well as unique editorial.

A deep-pocketed venture capital firm, The Chernin Group, just plunked $30 million into Surfline, banking on niche audiences to pay for the media that stokes them.

The Chernin Group also bankrolled celebrity hunter Steve Rinella’s MeatEater media group last year.
