    Building in Sandbridge

    I'm just venting right now but I'm sure that there are other surfers in the VB area that surf in Sandbridge that feel the same way.

    I'm pissed about all the paved beach access walk things they are putting everywhere! They started it at Tuna but now they are adding them to the market and even at S-Turns. Its the beach, you are supposed to walk on the sand at the beach, why add sidewalks? I don't get it. I just dont want to see SB turn into the oceanfront. Its starting to get way too developed and tourist friendly.

    Here's an idea for them: Give the residents their fcking tax money back!

    All homeowners pay extra for things like sand replenishment, road rebuilding after storms, etc. Now they'll have to have someone to clear sand from the paved paths so some touron doesn't get his aqua socks sandy. And, it'll be a city employee who will do nothing unless there is also a supervisor on the clock making sure things get done.

    I predict they'll be either sitting under 2' of sand or sticking up 2' out of the sand with jagged edges by next summer.

    On another note, the side street parking has blessed the residents with piles of trash and a pretty regular supply of brown trout since there are no public restrooms for miles.

    Man...I remember like 20 years ago when sandbridge had a big metal wall half falling into the ocean along with many of the houses and driveways. It was ugly as hell, and sure wasnt what you'd call tourist friendly but the surf was a lot better back then...crazy how as tore up as it was, and completely devoid of sand, it still broke better than after beachfill.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to turn sb into another oceanfront

    Obviously we need to scare the tourists and developers out and make it a surf haven. I suggest we go Blazing Saddles on them. Perhaps this will save the beach. That or go with the fake town method.

    There are plenty of horses at our disposal in Pungo for this operation. We have the plan, do we have the people?

    False shark reports might work as well too

    I love sandrbidge myself ! I would hate to see it become Oceanfront like ! I say let's do fake shark reports ! I remember when Hurricane Earl came through Labor Day Weekend and wasn't a single tourist to be found! Was awesome !!

    I'm surprised they havent tried putting a huge-ass hotel down there. Whole city is run by developers so it's a matter of time...

    the problem is the developers down there have been there longer than most of us have been alive.
