Possible Artificail Reef?
I'm doing a speech tomorrow for a communications class about how unsuccessful dredging beaches is and how much money we waste shooting sand onto the beach every couple years. I looked into alternatives and of course I knew about that artificial surfing reef in India which also controls beach erosion (If you haven't seen the link.. http://vimeo.com/11274816) But anyways, I was on browsing the website of the company that built it and came across this.
Was it just a plan that never happened or are they planning it? Any word on this?
Chevron Reef AKA Pratte's Reef
Don't know anything about that particular artificial reef, but this is definitely an interesting read for you.
Lotsa history on this on the Left Coast, directly involving Surfrider Foundation and had an impact on surfers.
