They never removed the jetties in Ceders just pumped so much sand there that they got covered up. When they first had the replenishment there, the beaches were huge, like Wildwood beach. After several years and storms, the break is starting to come back. You can actually see the jetties again, but they are mostly still covered.
Putting extra sand on the beach does nothing unless there is something like dune grass to hold it in place. Its going to destroy our breaks and waste money at the same time. Maybe they should put more money into planting dunes since they actually make a difference, extra sand is just going to slow the erosion a bit.
Did anyone read the article on "Surf-onomics". I think its worth speaking to your local counsel about the MONEY surfing brings--gas, food, exposure, tournaments--and maybe we can save at least one break per town...
Perhaps a petition from surfrider?
Of all the things they could do with 200 million they blow it on sand pumping.
WHERE DO YOU THINK ALL THAT SAND IN THE STREETS came from after Sandy???
What if you could some how convince these morons to use all that sand to create a giant perfect sand point break :) Know it will never happen but it would be intersting.
