Has anyone checked out the North End? I feel bad for the residents - shout out to CBSCREWBY - who have no beach whatsoever & broken beach accesses. I'm down for other methods, but nourishment has to continue in order to keep our beaches intact.
It's not just for the tourists & trust me, it's not the city intentionally messing with our breaks - it's for the economy & future of our small beach community.

Pretty crazy about ASR's reef in Bournemouth, UK. $6million spent to build it and closed in two years.

How was Pratte's Reef (the one in California that failed) done incorrectly?
Just curious. I have a theory on why they didnt work...but its not based on any real first hand knowledge.
the one point I want to bring up about hurricane sandy is that the flooding was not due to waves breaking on the shoreline. the problem was the surge or the displacement of water brought on by the pressure the incredibly large storm that sandy was. Its best explained as a large head broom being pushed through a puddle.
the waves only acted to break the walls, but walls or not, the water was going to come up over the land.
so, an artificial reef would have done zero to prevent the surge.
