Every week our surfcams output some interesting/arty/bizarre still images.. it's about time I started documenting 'em.
I call this one 'friggin windy'.
They're from a rival webcam but this guy never fails to make me laugh.
I seem not to be able to load them like you Ben
clearly I'm missing something here
Here you go, guy.
This bird is sent down by Swellnet to block rival cam vision btw.
You just tell Gary where he needs to be and when and he'll put on a reeeeeeal show in front of the surfcam for you.
You and me, Gary, ain’t nothing but mammals so let’s do it* like they do it on the aerobics channel
mmmm ..... like an animal for the camera?
Is that TB cam lost doggy?
P.s I cant reply to comments?
Nick, I think the forums you can't directly reply but you can on the swell net articles.
It's Guysmiley's photo, so could be 13th. Not sure.
@GuySmiley like a tigerrrrrrrrrrrrr
@nick, its a screen shot from one of the many cams of westernport
D'Bah: a study in bathymetry, refraction and near-shore shoaling under south swells.
wow...what an image of d.bah. it's going every which way.
From a traffic cam in Cairns today ... hello cockie
Lots of Collingwood supporters at Phillip Island, it seems.
There are no snow trips and cheese platters for Collingwood supporters nor Pinot Noir but after today's drubbing a few Melbourne members maybe reassessing why they cancelled this year's booking at Falls Creek.
Fascinating lip line at Shark Island.
I think that’s the wave you use to draw in high school.
P.s by writing this comment, i have just improved my english - http://www.5minuteenglish.com/mar20.htm
Whats that vessel doing at Narrowneck Ben?
Whale caught in net ?
Looks like it's a whale though it's swimming around a broad circle so may just be cruising.
That boat is awfully close though, if it's not assisting then it could be inside the regulatory zone.
Shit! Here comes the barge.
The barge is approaching gingerly from the south-east. The whale seems to have vanished.
Old mate in the fishing boat ain't going anywhere, for anyone.
"Piss orf, will ya? I was out here first."
Around 7.20 am pretty sure a whale breached
We don't have replays on this cam (yet) so can't check unfortunately.
Light breeze pushing down Gulf St Vincent, with a boat wake splitting the ruffle.
someones got too much time on their hands ;)
My morning ocean cam view was entertained with a dog walking into the picture looking a tad uncomfortable .. wanting to go on the sidewalk but then changing its mind.. then the owner appears with plastic bag and proceeds to pull the poo out of dogs bum. Dog then relieved and happy wags tail and the two of them walk out of the picture , and I'm back looking at ocean again to decide if waves are worth a paddle lol.
5 pm tonight, 200 metres off shore, a sweeper chancing a ripple
Three SUPs and what appears to be a bright orange jetski, enjoying the solitude of First Point Noosa.
I'm guessing this is one of those "whats wrong with this picture?" things . I can spot at least 8
The ones in the background are not considered to be at 'first point'.
The ones in the foreground are. They're sitting wide for a bomb set. Which should push through before Feb 2019.
Yeh I was responding to TS.
You reckon the orange jetski is some kind of kids inflatable?
Just stumbled across this one from a few years back. Somewhat ironic that the copper has double parked in order to book a car for parking illegally.
If you think that is rough Ben a few years ago I pulled out to overtake a 100 limited truck on the freeway, sat on the speed limit of 110, then saw a car coming up in my rear mirror doing at least 160. I pulled in to let him through and he slowed and stared at me ..... Unmarked police car doing 160+ to catch me doing maybe 120!
I know of a bloke that got fined a substantial amount for leaving his car unlocked as he ran inside the newsagents he was parked outside of. This is 7AM in a small country town with a low crime rate.
The same copper fines people for having non rated D shackles on their boat trailers.
Something about the curved quasi-symmetry in this surfcam grab that caught my eye. Not least the full house of street sweepers on a near-flat day at Noosa.
I don't think we'll top this.
Our system automatically captures one frame every ten minutes or so.
The South Port surfcam on the SA Mid Coast just captured a kiteboarder.
On a foilboard.
Challenge for Swellnet Super Sleuths (Today Tues 4/12/2018) Coast is clear!
(swellnet Stardate time:(NSW/DST)@ 5:50-6:05am Falcon 9 rises from east.
This should be easy to see pre Sunrise.The rocket heads in a W/SW trajectory.
I did see it live this morning,looks like a major chem trail it should show up on cams!
Be cool to see if swellnet outposts can detect spaceships as well as seaships.
Ahh Middleton, your blue is just out of reach.
Interestingly, Yamba is seeing a similar phenomena with rainfall runoff out of the Clarence now moving south with the EAC.
The backwash has been brutal at Caba over the last few weeks. How's this surfcam snap - keeping in mind that it was one of the automated grabs too (randomly every ten mins). Eat your heart out Ray Collins! Hahaha.
Classic, worth a closer look.
Backwash! That reminds me of this classic old clip from kookslams. The wave is barely 2 foot (imperial) when the chap paddles in and he ends up easily 20 foot in the air. Kaboom!!!
How’s this one.....
Never gets old, haha!
Yes, that's a classic.
The kookslams clip that has given me most laughs is this one. It's the narration. You need the sound on.
