    No more Monmouth surf?!?

    The waves are being burieI'm strongly against this " beach replenishment project" Honestly it's a waste of 18million dollars . It's all about money these days huh. The beaches did not need to be restored. So now what spots are still surf able? because today where I was none of them were rideable heck there were hardly any waves it was beach break. What are we gonna do!?! Is there anywhere that's going to remain untouched? What about deal

    Brah, I was just reading at length the other day about those blokes across the pond at Boscombe! Have you seen the film on that faux break? Not half bad when you think about it, but the ride is short as hell for all that squabble and lobbying. Gets you thinking what could be done elsewhere. Man-made bathymetry. It's something else.

    Unhappy my monmouth county spot ruined

    my secret spot ( i could tell you but then i would have to…..) is trashed. just ruined. pumping makes good beaches; less so or not at all for the surf….a large storm could turn this around.
    so heres to the winter storm i have officially named "MAYHEM."

    I thought Mayhem can be avoided just by switching car insurance.

    This isn't the first time they've pumped and it won't be the last ...it sucks but sooner or later they will come back ..hell it's only sand . It will take a few storms but the ocean will start revealing some secret spots in places that everyone wrote off. The key is to get there first before everyone else learns about them . That being said it took over 5 years after they pumped SeaBright for the spots to be legit ..be patient and mobile .

    I agree with sandy hook surfer. Us northern Monmouth county boys have been screaming and crying about replenishment for last several years. Now southern Monmouth surfers are finally seeing it at their favorite breaks and as a result they have been traveling up to us this winter. It definitely is enraging to see millions of dollars spent to flatten a break for 6 months before the next storm just throws that sand on ocean ave or back out to sea, and eventually makes it rideable. But most breaks find a way to peel again, just takes time. I feel your pain but this is just an annual bummer now in the area we live in.

    They started naming winter storms after sandy because many car, home and boat insurance companies include a item in their contract that says any named storm is considered an act of god and acts of god are not covered. They always find a way to screw you.

    As far as filling the beaches its a waste of time and federal money just to save a few homes of the rich at the dune line. Pitiful if you ask me they should leave the beach alone and if you make more than a certain amount or your beach house was your second house you are on your own. The people who lost all and were in an area who didn't expect a flood or are buried financially due to the storm should get those federal dollars to help lift their house. Even before sandy it was always a waste of tax dollars. Just a bunch of wasteful sand moving for months so one big noreaster can take it all in a day. If we took the dams out of the rivers and streams the sediments would replenish the beach anyway for free, mother nature had this figured out we just fixed what wasn't broken.
