    Quite possibly the dumbest idea I've ever heard. I can't believe these people are even discussing this.
    The Jersey Shore would become one big lake full of Hudson river water, toxic.
    Plus the islands would never last. They would be destroyed in no time by open ocean swell and storms.
    Would be a bigger waste of money than sand replenishment.
    How about the insurance companies just pay up once a lifetime for storm damage?

    whoa.... hey you could get into a lot of trouble for thinking like that....
    If I knew we wouldn't have a storm for 25 or 30 years I'd dump my insurance and just put a few hundred bucks a month away into a bank account and self insure!

    Whoa...

    This would obviously be no good for surfers, but they have to seriously consider options to avoid NYC and the large populations around it getting wiped out.

    There has to be better solutions then this... Are we going to start building large breakwaters around the entire country? We need to make smarter more adaptable solutions then putting up a giant wall that will also erode and need constant repair.

    It'd be outrageously expensive and terrible for us as surfers but havent they successfully done stuff like this in the netherlands?

    There is a breakwater in the mouth of the Delaware that protects the coastal bay shore from surf erosion and surge. Its the same concept, but on an immensely bigger scale, primarily because it is off the coast in deeper water and a much bigger area.
