Updates to the Surf Webcams Page

Weather is changing as a cold front passed. Getting colder in S. Florida. Will there be #surf?

Check out my live #SurfReport webpage for the E coast of #Florida. All free, no ads #surfing webcams all in one place.

I’ve added a Jupiter (Juno Beach) camera and a Daytona and Ormond Beach camera.

See them on BrownieBytes:

#surfer #waves

Many of these cameras go up and down all the time. I try and keep up with it but clients come first!

The Ponce Inlet cams in south Daytona, across the inlet from north New Smyrna, took a beating and are still down after Hurricane Ian from two months ago. The beaches in that area are still blasted and heavy construction is ongoing to the north.

Sebastian Inlet cam is up but the north jetty is still hammered.

The Cocoa Beach Pier webcam has been down for a couple of weeks. I check it everyday to see if it’s back up.

If you know of other helpful live or daily updated camera shots on the east coast of Florida, let me know at Mike@rmichaelbrown.com.

Rory McIlroy throws fan’s remote-controlled golf ball into water

Rory McIlroy was in no mood for hijinks on Saturday.

During the third round of the BMW Championship, a fan dropped a remote-controlled golf ball on the 15th green where McIlroy and Scott Stallings were putting and tried to get it into the hole.

He was quickly thwarted by the Northern Irishman, who knocked the ball away with his putter twice before losing his patience and lobbing it into a nearby pond.

Tour de France crash 2021: fan avoids jail amid court case

The spectator behind one of the biggest pile-ups in Tour de France history appeared in court charged with injuring dozens of riders but seemed set to avoid jail after prosecutors demanded a suspended sentence.

The 31-year-old French woman, whose identity was withheld after she was targeted by a torrent of online abuse, has already told prosecutors of being ashamed at her “stupidity” for causing what some dubbed the “worst crash ever seen”in the famous race.

Wearing a blue sweater, she fled the scrum of journalists waiting at the courthouse in Brest, in western France.

But the presiding judge rejected a request by her lawyer to have the trial held behind closed doors.

While jail time was a real possibility, the prosecution requested that she be given a four-month suspended sentence on the charges of endangering lives and causing unintentional injuries.

Under French law she could have faced a fine of up to 15,000 euros ($AUD23,00) and a year in prison for the charges.

Prosecutor Solenn Briand acknowledged that she had recognised “how dangerous” her conduct had been and had expressed regret.

Brownie Bytes doesn’t agree with this outcome. Turning the perpetrator into the victim is ridiculous. She caused real harm by her foolish actions to get attention. A slap on the wrist and suspended sentence is morally wrong and sends a message to her and foolish fans that anything goes at races.

Tour de France fan who caused huge opening day crash goes on trial – France 24

Ouest-France reported the charges include a possible one-year jail sentence.

The hits keep coming for the spectator, with the professional cyclists union also taking legal action against her to pursue compensation for the injured riders.

Four riders were unable to continue in the second stage of the event as a result of injuries they sustained in the crash. 26 riders in total were listed as injured in the Tour’s official record.

The CPA released a statement to announce it is seeking symbolic compensation of $1.50 (one euro).
