the problem is that nowadays, people don't know how to think for themselves, so unless there's a "study" by doctors and scientists, there is no real explanation so it must be some sort of freak phenomenon!
anyone with half a brain and the ability to think logically can look and see that pushing the beach out deeper into the ocean is going to a create a dropoff, thus forcing the waves to break directly into the sand rather than onto a sandbar. instead, the people writing these articles just think "hurr durr people tell da stories but dere aren't any science to prove dem!". it really pisses me off that it's become so obvious as to why there are so many injuries (all of them being on replenished beaches) yet no one will do anything about it because there aren't any studies proving it!
the lifeguard officials where i am warned that replenishing brant beach would create a cluster**** of injuries, but nevertheless, at the start of the summer everyone walked up to the beach to find a giant desert of sand dropping off into 12 feet of water. LBTBP actually only has experienced lifeguards and those who are also trained EMTs stationed on the beaches there because they know it's the most dangerous place for tourists to swim.
i recently read in a local paper, that from the right vantage point you can see brant beach is now basically empty, while the beaches in ship bottom (which hasn't been replenished) are full because everyone's going there instead...
