    This sucks, just got internet back up at work and this is the first thing I saw...I was out there about three weeks ago and didn't see any signs of this...going to look at the articles now. I thought all the dune restoration was in lieu of this.

This is one of the very few beach breaks in RI. We only have a few that don't shore pound. Most of the sandy beaches are not rideable already west of gansett. Why destroy one of the few. Ridiculous.
    I don't support any of what they're doing. However, claiming that you're gonna go wave hungry in RI as a result is laughable. Gotta have yet another BB and wouldn't want a terrible thing like a cobblestone bottom at Matunuck right? And those points, what a waste...

    Bro, you've got more good breaks (and varied ones) within 5-45 minutes than just about anyone I can think of.

    They don't compare for bodyboarding. Matunuck is a slow wave. The poinits are not barrels. This was a nice hollow beach break. One of the very few in the state. And the crowds are horrific at matunuck.

    Perhaps. I'm no sympathetic one for spongers though. Surfers go without a lot more than you do. I really don't support any of this beach replenishment though. Lawmakers that do should be out in trunks and made to stand in the unnatural shorebreak it causes. BTW, your posts can be informative and backed by facts and photos at times but you're bordering on rabble-rousing like Starchy and brewengineer would say chich (but long live chich!) and that gets old here even for good causes. Not to mention you going toe to toe with a lot of cats on the reg. But hey, eff all this replenishment.

    Crowds at Matunuck, maybe I'm just there on the right days. That first Saturday in November swell when it was 75 degrees and clean head high swell, there were plenty of people there but there's peaks for days at that break. These long breaks with long waves offer space for many people, I don't know what some of you expect. Personal peaks? So...you can't be the only one on the peak of the best wave at a multi-wave break but now it's gone to crap...?

    Not sympathetic to bodyboarders? How about short boarders or anyone that likes heavy fast barrel.

    You're the one babbling about irrelevant stuff. You don't even have a clue and you're showing your ignorance with these posts. Just ignore my posts if you have nothing to do but troll me.

    im surprised the acoe of engineers don't get taken to court for manslaughter.everytime they replenish,they create those steep drop offs where kids die.it happens all the time.thats why I phreakin phukin hate the eastcoast,in cali,they remove sand at Malibu to keep it firing.complete opposite over here.they saved trestles 4 times,we cant even stop 1 beach from being replenished.all to make rich people who have oceanfront property feel safe that they wont get flooded.all my northern nj spots have been replenished,so I have to drive down to ocean just to surf.then u get down there and its just as bad as up north.i can walk to the ocean from my house,but theres no point.they already replenished it last june,and they are currently doing it again right now.beach is all fenced off with bulldozers and a big azz pump.maybe one day I can mve to a place that gets real waves and doesn't get destroyed by politicians.
