The property owner who allowed a webcam to be installed at his holiday homes to broadcast a popular surfing spot, says he has received threats and didn't expect it would cause such an uproar among locals.
Sports website Surf2Surf recently broadcasted live footage from Ahipara's Shipwreck Bay for its subscribers.
But territorial local surfers not wanting to share the waves with out-of-towners allegedly used black spray paint to cover the lens of the camera and threatened the property owner.
Northland mayor John Carter blamed the webcam for the influx of visitors coming to the area.
"Visitors, as a consequence of the webcam, are leaving waste behind, including human waste." He said Surf2Surf installing the webcam without communicating and discussing with the locals was "disrespectful".
