Greetings from the beach. What a pleasant morning. The south swell seems to be coming in nicely. Huge morning crowd enjoying the fruits of 2-3 footers. Even with the 6:15am low tide the waves are breaking really fat. I guess the sand banks just don’t suit super high or mega low tides. As I write this it looks like the southerly has started to blow (12 knots)…it’s mushy now.
I’ve been asking surfers that have lived here all their lives if they think the bull dozer shifting sand on the beach is a good or bad thing for our waves. Will it make a good bank or will it make it close out? I would love to hear your thoughts. My vox pop revealed it could go either way. We definitely have some rather large holes in the banks that could be filled in…but it looks like the ‘dozer will make the beach straight, without any natural curves that create peeling waves. Your thoughts?
