Does it really destroy every break? WTF is right. Every single time? And by "destroy" I don't mean a closeout for a bit till the sand gets rearranged by the next swell. I mean no longer breaks.
Or is this an exaggeration? I've just read about it. Never experienced it first hand. But I'm about to.
in my experience, it's an exaggeration. yes, it takes time (years, even) for the sand to rearrange & people will argue that it's never quite the same as it was pre-replenishment, but it's a beach break; sand shifts around all the time. odds are, most people are nostalgic about how good it was prior & jaded about how bad it is after.
