Thread: LATER 48th St.

  1. #11
    Its an over rated and crowded break anyways. The damn place gets crowded like a surfing beach on a good winter swell (where its breaking good everywhere anyways). I think most of the crowds are there because the surf cam is pointed at the break.

    I think 48 street should be nuked, the half life of the radiation will keep kooks away for years and years.. and it will bring down that abomination of a new jersey wet dream condo too. )

    OSV is the answer.. ha.

    I love el tiburons in thw water... they help clear crownded breaks too. )

    Im a kook and I approve this msg. )

    "that abomination of a new jersey wet dream condo too. "

    Just another poster child of the bubble for sure.



    I think they started the project so early that it won't make much of a difference give or take a few swells. We could have a single storm take out what is being pumped now and then some, which has a high probability Should be fun somewhere no matter where the sand settles.

    They pump in OC every 4 or 6 years since 1992 I think. my facts might not right on but when they designed the dune system in the early 90's they put got federal and state and local money to do these projects every so often. Bottom line, i've been told, is that as long as property owners out number surfers there wont be any more surf beaches and/or less pumping....

    i used to surf there like fifteen years ago before the crowd thickened. it has always been a nice break. always a foot or two bigger at the groin on both north and south swells. its a shame. seems to me by 48th being the elbow of oc they wouldnt destroy it cause it seems to catch the sand as the swells sweep across it. would make sense to pump north of it or south of it. not a direct hit. wtf damn shame

    Once again, from north to south, no matter what and where they pump the sand it will not stay very long. Same as last time, they will pump sand so high you would think those rocks would never be seen again and then they are there,.. again,.. same as always.

    The sand goes where it always goes, south of us. The sand bars off the inlet will build again then they will have to go out and spend money to dredge them, again.

    Does anyone see a pattern here?

    What is your solution then?

    the ocean will always take back the things that humans try to make it do, its just a matter of time

    not really suggesting a solution, not anymore, that topic has been well read many already.
    I just saying that either way, there or else where, we will be surfing somewhere. No worries, just surf.

    OC Beach Replenishment

    Beach replenishment goes on all the time in OC. Last year they didn't use the ACE the city did it themselves by moving the sand from the inlet up to where the beach had eroded the most. The sand will always move where the ocean wants it to go. IF you watch the pipe at 48th. the sand will build up on the N side and bury the pipe while the pumping goes on to the north and south. After a couple of NEters things will go back close to what they are now. However, get it while you can 'cause it will be messed up after the pump gets going until a nice storm hits. The new beach will wash away this winter and the bars will build back next summer. It is a shame that nature can't take her course which would mean good surf breaks all around.
