    In order to effectively monitor and gather scientific evidence, Surfbreak Protection will set up a scientific survey method using time-lapse cameras that will enable the measurement of the wave breaking conditions on the Bar. It would be a first in New Zealand.

    The cost of purchasing and installing the camera, laptop, internet and solar power is NZ$6,000 with ongoing costs of $1,500 every 6 months to analyse the data and maintain the equip - total of $10,000.
