Flat/straight beaches are notorious for close outs. A natural beach is generally not straight. It juts in and out. The straightness is from dumping sand/overdevelopment/destruction of marshes that naturaly replesnish sand.

It will probably take a few more attacks(a certainty) and in the next few years before the authorities act. I don't believe there was a shark attack for 60 years or so and now a few in the past few. Common sense.
For comparison purposes Bradley beach in NJ. The jettys are the only thing even causing any type of jutting out at all, otherwise that beach would be as flat as the edge of a paper.
Oh and difference where cape cod is developed vs. natural
Down here in the mid-atlantic and southeast, when you have miles of mostly featureless beach
look for a setup like this
I see a few potential setups here too
There are better examples out there but you get the idea I hope.
Shark Hunter, you should move to The Great Lakes.
Relocate the seals !! That's awesome.
It's a dangerous world out there, Shark Hunter, but killing sharks and handing an eviction notice to the seals is a little extreme. Dude, sharks are supposed to be in the ocean and they shouldn't be killed just so you can surf without worry. Dude, the ocean is the domain of the seals and sharks. They belong there.
Ahh, I remember this conversation from last year.
Shark Hunter, humans aren't any more important than dogs or sharks. Everything has a right to exist on this earth.......even Mexicans.
You are soooo trolling with this. LOL I'm not even going to bother. Tuna is supposed to be in the ocean too and the open ocean is not our "natural" habitat so maybe we shouldn't fish either. LOL

Now we are stuck either watching the beach completely erode away of setting up jetties, which rob other areas of sand or dumping sand which costs millions to tax payers and destroys sandbars. Now obviously you can still have waves in front a few houses, but you get the idea of what I'm saying. OVERDEVELOPMENT of senstive area's
Look at blacks beach as good example as well
Or this juicy looking break. Never been there, but looks like a sand point break
