Many NS locals commented the Sandy Relief project of 500,000 cubic yards ruined NS for ever, it would never come back after finally working again when Sandy pulled off the finer Dune sand last October. It only took one Nor'easter in September pulling enough sand to create a shallow bar again. I'll agree not as good as it was so hope winter storms will add to mother nature's work in progress. The major factor for this early success is high percentage of medium and finer sand dredged from the IRI. Many times we're unfavorable of Army Corp projects but this time they as well as the contractor Manson really delivered what SR was hoping for in the end. The Delaware Chapter of Surfrider has been actively engaged in this project to restore NS including monitoring the sand sample data of dredged material. Mitchell has commented many times dredging finer sand improves Surfability of beaches and he's 100% correct. NS will continue to be monitored although we're pleased with the early results.
While we're on the topic; 330 feet of the Northside Jetty was repaired from the sidewalk eastward so future sand loss through the Jetty hopefully will be eliminated that was a major factor of sand retention for the Designated Surfing Beach.
The Delaware Chapter of Surfrider has been active for nearly 2 years restoring surfing of our Delaware Beaches. We're seeing some successes of our efforts while sadly the surfing community has been reluctant to support the Chapter's efforts. Maybe its just me but if an organization of volunteers was diligently striving to improve my surfing certainly would be worth a $25.00 membership to show support.
