    Loch Arbor Beach Replenishment

    I hated it at first but now I'm actually looking forward to it. Summer is here and the large swells are gone. However the crowds are huge, for whatever reason, on a wave that is not even that great. The spot is plagued with large deep holes that make waves not want to break and rarely are they ever hollow.

    Does anyone else think that this spot will improve from replenishment? The only times wave jack up and break top to bottom are on the overhead+ swells that break on the bar outside the jetty. Anything smaller than that and it is just not good. High tide can be down right unsurfable. I went on on a chest high day earlier this summer. Chest high swells rolling in, look like they are going to break, then just die out. Chest high going right over the holes breaking in the 5 inch deep water.
    Sometimes the wave is so mellow you can't even catch it until it is breaking on top of you and you just gotta hope for the best.

    Wanted to hear others opinions on this spot. Though replenishment kills the breaks, after a year or so of good storms the bars are just deep enough to be surfable without breaking boards in most spots.

    That how la breaks man....ap is steeper...just move over a jetty

    the beaches are better than ever right now...small waves break out far on low tide due to the natural slope....replenishment will fill in the jetties to the end and completely cover them up...

    They going 10 feet up and 100 yards out from sandy hook to squan....i'd get wet before this happens or follow the dredging equipment

    Didn't they state they are not going to cover the jetties? They did that in MB and it failed.

    Total waste of money and resources. Its going to ruin every break from the cove to the inlet. Total Shiite. If a storm hits, all that sand is going to end up on Ocean Ave, again, like it has every winter since they started this madness. Time for God to hit the reset button because people just plain suck.

    As of last night at 8pm, the pumping has begun in MB. Bye bye sandbars... you were the best I'd ever seen.

    The beginning of the end...

    So mad. Mb broke the best it has in years and now it's back to heading south when there could easily be waves down the street if people weren't completely stupid. Ughgh
