Yeah I had a bunch of stuff gone through by a group of thugs on the beach in broad daylight in front of the jetty about 2 years ago. I saw it happening, but the waves were pretty good for LI standards that day so I almost didnt even go in to do anything about it. I managed to chase them away, thankfully they werent packin heat
just watch your back, and keep everything you need on you if at all possible, as someone else suggested:)

I keep all of my valuable stuff on me at all times (metrocard, keys and cash).
