Many times surfers and other stakeholders offer to work with such projects in advance with various results. It always helps if the powers that be listen to recommendations, rather than go in with a pre set plan and have a public hearing just for the sake of compliance. Are there waves that people surf near the breakwater project. That is my number one concern as a surfer. If not, my second concern is how the project will affect the water quality of the surrounding marine environment. We really don't need all these coastal hardening projects, although the marine contractors and developers would rather us believe it is vital for our economic health and jobs. But how many jobs are lost once a beach and nearby fisheries are too polluted to produce fish and shellfish? Nearby hotels, fishing charters, dive boats, and the recreational interests of surfers, anglers, and beachgoers suffer. That is why I have the attitude. Nothing personal towards you. You came on a surf forum looking for answers, and you should expect a bit of negative feedback. I will give you points for being civilized in your approach, but beware of a wolf in sheep's clothing is an idiom I like to live by.
