Every week our surfcams output some interesting/arty/bizarre still images.. it's about time I started documenting 'em.
Haha, hadn't seen that! How good.
Gold! Somebody buy that dolphin a beer.
Dolphin v Sup. Brilliant.
There is a local reef that I have given up surfing super early before dawn such is the sea life. Dolphins, seals, and massive schools of panicked fish and recently the pectoral fin of a whale ambling past.
Once when I was about to duck dive a set wave about to close out on me a dolphin flew straight out of the wave's face and right over me. When I came up a whole pod of them were all over the line up swimming around and taking any wave they wanted!
That first point bomb set come through yet?
(thought this was going to be attached to Ben's comment on the picture of First Point from the middle of last year - the one with the three crew sitting patiently wide at flat 1st point - doesn't quite have the same impact when it's 50 posts later... Happy New year SN crew)
It's not February yet!
Geez the Duranbah Cam is very entertaining today.
Did someone tweek it today so it stays focussed in the one spot and has been zoomed in? Pretty good to watch....in-between working.
Yeah when the action's good we'll zoom it in. Been plenty of burnings!
Haha yea I know, drop in central!
Lorne looking lavenderish.
Also they seem to think its ok to park in the “No Standing zone” across from the Cafe when buying takeaways........
One shot every ten minutes.. what are the chances! A few mins ago at Cabarita.
Salute the boss! Now that's how ya do a Captain's pick! (Take note Pollies!)
Ben's bird man susses out swellnet's new high flyers comment cam.
Must be swellnet business class with miles of leg room in the mile high club.
Never seen Lorne so clean (and sandy!) before.
Nothing special, but I thought this was kinda cool for the automated-10min image grab. 13th Beach this AM.
Again, to reiterate - our surfcam still image system takes a single snapshot every ten minutes. With that in mind, this frame from Lorne is phenomenal.
The first swallow of spring?
The current view on the Dbah cam and Tweed Bar cam is interesting..
Its scaffolding on the side of the building, as Optus are putting in a new mobile tower on the roof (apparently to assist in the spread of Covid-19). Will be there for a few weeks.
swallow can surf everyway
If a stork brings white babies and a crow brings black babies, what brings no babies?
A bloody big swallow!

This Swift was a month early > 150km + [< 50m Freeze frame >] @ 10min interval.
Birds are wired to Craig's ECL reports which trigger Ben's Lorne cam..(A scam it is!)
Basically Storm Birds feast on Bugs in Currents like Bait Fish in Currents!

I've got a good one of currumbin cam with a massive crack on it. Can I post photo?
Currumbin at 7.45 shows the dredge being towed into the creek for annual dredging program.
This signals the beginning of the end for the bank every year.
Where do they put the sand?
