The surf cams are enjoyed for pure entertainment purposes, too — capturing a plethora of evocative events appealing to weather geeks, conspiracy theorists, nature lovers, and other romantics. Beach erosion and whale breaches. East Coast waterspouts and West Coast wildfires. Meteor showers and UFOs. Marriage proposals and weddings. Good Samaritans unearthing vehicles out of sand traps and various wildlife roaming the beach.
