What's the water doing in your area? Where are the best waves? How big's the swell? Our regularly updated surfcams are ready to tell you just what you need, whether you're wanting to look for a big challenge or whether you've planned to give a grommet his/her first surfing lesson (hey, if there were more surfers on the planet, this world would be a better place).
The clear and informative pictures from our surfcams also help you see if and when there's a big rip at your favourite surfing spot that will make it too dangerous to go out for you. And as our surfcams show enough of the beach so you can see if it's crowded, cloudy, rainy or chilly, you'll know just what to throw in the back of the van (or Holden) to match the conditions, whether it's a wetsuit for the chill or a pair of sunnies to impress the talent with your looks (and keep an eye out for our list of surf shops coming soon to find out where to buy these).
And besides all that, our surfcams provide some gorgeous shots of Australia's best beaches in all conditions. Wait for long enough, and you'll be able to bag a few images (for personal use only; images from our surfcams may be subject to copyright) to use as computer wallpaper.
And for those who don't want to watch the computer all day but would rather be out and doing, then our surfcams can be linked to some mobile phones so you can get an idea of what the surf's doing wherever you are.
