Today I went to Long Branch beach for surfing, and I noticed a pipe already in the ocean at The Pit, Brighton Ave... Then after surfing I went on the road to check Long Branch beaches out, and I saw alotta of pipes lay on the beaches. I wonder what they are for... Im sorry if this news are already posted.
I would like to know whats up with that since I lived all of my life in Long Branch but right now I am current going to college up state of NY so that's why I haven't heard any news about it.
yea i live in long branch and when i first started surfing there around 5 years ago i thought they were still used but you saw the one by the pit and probably the hotel they were used in the 60's as a run off but they've been closed up for years, in fact sometimes when the tides low peoplel go inside 'em
i think they might be taking them out real soon but i could be wrong.
Sounds like (from the atricles at least) that the beach replenishment will actually help maintain and enhance the sandbars over the long term - like maybe next year these breaks would be good again. But as far as this winter and spring, the breaks will be f''d up or at the least inconsistent. No surfer likes to see this type of beach work happen, but hopefully the replenishment will help keep these beaches open and if all goes well this could really improve the breaks in this area. It's tough when you're directly impacted by another government experiment.
