Every week our surfcams output some interesting/arty/bizarre still images.. it's about time I started documenting 'em.

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)

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.

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.

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.

If a stork brings white babies and a crow brings black babies, what brings no babies?
A bloody big swallow!

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.
