    wind farms

    what will happen to the surf if/when wind farms are placed off our beaches?

    i'm not sure what kind of structures they are. if they are big structures that go down in depth below sea level, then they could act as breakwaters, blocking swell in some areas.

    it looks to me like a lot of the structure is just floating on the surface of the water - like a big buoy - , which i dont think would block too much wave energy. so thats good for everyone.

    i checked out that site. pretty cool, i'm glad delaware finally decided to give the wind farms a go.

    Me too. I am from DE and all the state is known for is being the first state to sign the declaration of independence (which no one outside of DE knows).
    Now DE is also known for being the first state to develop offshore wind power.

    windfarms

    if they were spread apart like in the video on the homepage but went to the bottom would they block swell? or maybe it could break a swell up and the beach in front will have a-frames all the time? i mean other than this year it's hard enough to get a good size swell around here and it they get shredded to nothing rolling into the beach that would really suck i guess it depends on how wide the field is?
