    I know they were supposed to be doing some testing offshore for potential oil drilling.
    I don't believe they started that yet though.

    Hey Chich do you remember or were you around in the 80's when the navy used to shoot at the practice drones off of Dam Neck? The boom from those artillery shells would practically knock things off shelves in our house at the north end of sandbridge. I just wouldn't want to be the poor pilot that had to tow the things behind his plane.

    Hearing all of the machine gun fire also kept us from venturing around the poles to catch waves on the base. I had a few friends that got greetings from the navy guys that were very similar to the stories about weapon toting rogue border "guards" in Central America.

    While looking for the Daytona info I came across this Google Earth Tour link

    The Topography of Giant-Wave Zones

    I'm on a slow connection here at work so I didn't check the whole tour but here is a summary of the text

    along the lines of a regional catastrophe the vabeach/0bx crew MIGHT (ireallydontknow) want to consider
    an unfolding downstream flow of toxic coal ash which also poses possible threat to water supply….all this from
    today's edition nytimes…..

    yes I do remember. I used to get up early and go on the S side of the poles before the guard got there. Waves (seemed) so much sweeter. topped off with bombs and machine guns.
    On the N end there were LACs, They would come screaming by at a 1000mph and when they got to the ramp at Fart Story, they'd cut 90 degrees and blast up the beach and into the parking lot onthe other side of the dunes.

    Back in the late 70's early 80's I was out near the point when a flock of Hueys came around in formation. I was goofing around acting like I was shooting them with a machine gun. The last gun ship cuta 360 around me. The gunner was almost lying flat, I could see his face over his weapon. Good times.

    Great story.

    The s-turns area up near the dam neck poles was my local spot in the 80's. That was such a great break for years then poof!!...no more huge sandbar.

    Same with the N end. there was beach replenishment there, but all the sand came up from the resort area dredging. After they ran the schitt(storm water) pipe out to sea, the beach grew faster. It now ends where the outside break use to was.
