Thread: Sand Bar

  1. #1

    Sand Bar

    It is nice to see the surf reports today. The last two days, while it looks beautiful, have been a mess - low tide crashing close out on the sand bar and high tide slamming the shore. I had made a lot of progress in the past couple months, as a beginner long boarder, and was beginning to think I was taking a big step back.

    bro heres the deal, the storms out in the tropics have been messing with the sand bars. Whenever the storms come close to shore the waves move some of the older sand from the back around with the wind so the sand bars get all messed up. But the storms generate some waves so its like trying to have your cake and eat it to.

    I had some much fun shredding during bill and danny though, most of the time you couldnt even see me because I spent so much time tokin in the barrel. I ripped it hard so much fun bro I wish september was year round, or there was like a permanent hurricane right of the coast of jersey I would shred all day every day.

    I have no clue what you just said....

    In a simple way:
    Storms generate sandbars from bigger wave action moving sand from the beach to the bars. This is why there are better sand bars in the winter---more winter storms. Bill, Danny and the Nor Easter have moved the sand around and have created a lot better sandbars than before Bill.

    Summer is generally flat without wave action the sand bars move back towards the beach.

    NO DUDE thats all wrong the sandbars are being effected by planet X its drawing closer to the earth so all the sand is being sucked out of the ocean and being sent into space where it is sucked into plant x ultra vortex that is headed towards earth 12/12/2012 all sand will be gone

    Sandbars and stuff

    I went to 3 spots yesterday that I know well. One is sandbar city...which is normally a good peeling wave, except there were alot of closeouts right onto the sandbar, after 30 min I decided it better not to break my board or neck! Another jetty break spot (not posting location since I don't want to get harassed) has completely lost its floor...completely rearranged and waves are breaking but totally inconsistent. Another spot same thing...only a few pockets where there are any waves...also where everyone is lined up! I've only been surfing consistently since last Aug, and I've come to learn that conditions are not always what they appear, and you can't always depend on surf reports...unless it's from someone who is just leaving the water. I thought things looked good yesterday but when I paddled out there were currents, closeouts, and cussing.

    Wow...didn't realize these boards were so pent up. My point was the rides were steep and short lived and dumped you onto the bar...not my kind of day. Things happen, but I won't give any cases in point for entertainment purposes. With everyone back in school and days to myself I can surf to my heart's content in perfect conditions...why would I settle for less?? Woooomp wooooomp ...hahahhaha
