    We should have one with the surfers. So then there would've been one with us and the fishermen two different times

    DKennedy, there is nothing you can do to change the current plans. Unfortunately the people you are protesting have no say in change. At best you can change future project that have not been set in stone yet. Think future, the present is to late.

    There are no "peaks" with shorepound unrideable closeouts caused by bad replenishment. **** breaks on SAND. So unless you're into riding straight in on the sand on a boogie board with back breaking waves then it's no good. Justin Curtis....lol

    Sometimes you can lose a battle but still live on and regroup to wage and win the war.

    1. Enlist the support of influential women. Men are good at yelling and making bold statements, but most women I have met are more passionate and effective at waging a long term campaign on a grassroots level.

    2. Find a sympathetic journalist to document your efforts, and events.

    3. Enlist the groms: they own social media. Someone up there should read "Twitter for Good" (or "Tweet for Good" - I forget the exact title). It is a textbook on how to launch a grassroots campaign through twitter and develop online strategies for non-profits, written by a Twitter exec.

    Don't give up. Learn from the past. They are very organized and ruthless. You must organize and enlist stakeholders, journalists and scientists to show the powers that be that they are wrong. It is not your job to promote any alternatives, just to show that what they are doing is harmful to the public's enjoyment of the public's recreational resources paid for by the public's taxes. It starts to change slowly, but the goal is that on new projects not yet slated, they come to you for your opinions first. Then you (with scientific facts) come up with alternatives and they listen, rather that go through a long and costly public debate. This way you can modify and mitigate their BS dredge and fill projects, and they can still do them and make money. They just won't be as harmful, and won't have to be done as often.

    Actually you couldn't be more wrong. The plans are draft and they are under a public comment period which is exactly what is occurring presently.
    Nothing is "set in stone" and they haven't even put the project out to competitive bid yet.
    The people accepting comments at the Corps are the people in charge of project design and execution, so they actually have all the say in the world as to how this gets done.

    Where do you surf? Obviously not in this area when it's 8 foot and barreling
    Oh that's right, you are probably surfing close out barrel shore break post replenishment
    At least the photos looks good on surfline.
