    if they set up the feeder beach the way they say theyre going to do it(in a point break type of design..) this could really help surfers..but is the feeder beach just at west end or r they hooking all lb beaches up with feeder beaches

    I disagree. as good as it sounds, the "point" set up on a feeder beach made of sand would only last through a few major storms before it begins to reach an equalibrium with the surrounding area and the "point" is gone. Given that maintentance dredging is usually on a 3-5 year interval, the feeder beach set up will be absent most of the time. Still its great that they are willing to try it and hopefully im wrong.

    I think more attention should be given to grain size. Medium to finer grain size (like that used in OCMD or OCNJ) will form bars - maybe no point breaks, but at least a sandbar break after the pumped sand is reworked after a few good storms. Look at the difference between the OCMD breaks (medium fine borrow material gets surfable a few months after pumping) and Bethany/Dewey/Rehoboth (coarse grain sand that completely ruined the break). Plus the harsh shore pound created by the steep beachface with coarse grain sand is hazardous, so surfers have some allies in fighting that crap.
