You did have to ruin what was otherwise an interesting topic.

Now if that image above is as it's happening that is creepy! Just like Woody said churning and foaming.

Now where does it go? Does the sand slide out over a rock shelf? or sink straight down?

Maybe if someone down there isn't doing anything tommorow they could dive the area an give us an update.

Just cuz I'm interested, and creeped. And inquiring minds want to know.

Hi,
We are in n. cal now so we asked a friend to check it out.. He said it is pretty incredible. Looks like the beach drops to 100 ft pretty much right off shore.. Frailes is usually our nice, quiet, calm beach when it is windy and rough everywhere else. We dove there in nov. can't wait to dive there when we go down at the end of april. Gotta wait for the sand and gunk to settle to make a dive worth while. The submarine canyon comes right into shore there, hence the pelagics. This thread is pretty intersting despite the snark. IF we hear anything from any local divers we will post it.

Wow, if its straight down 100ft. it would seem the sand has built up against a shelf vs. on a shelf. Wonder how far back that goes? The thought of putting on the belt and sitting in the captains chair fighting a cow from the beach is intriguing. Or even from the bed of a truck. With the ebrake on of course.

You provided the link, no mystery... I justy clicked on the photo to see if there were more of the beach or perhaps more info to varify... and that beautiful huge turtle photo was so interesting to see, I wondered why it hadn't been shown before... as a matter of historic interest (provided the turtle was taken when such things were 'legal').

Nope, I didn't take anything... It is called a hyper link... to a public-open photo, on HIS site. Taking it would be saving it onto my PC or my photo album and linking it to my web site. I did NONE of that.

I just can't believe it. Walking the high-water line there all around with my dog for it's twice a day one hour walk on March 22 and 23. Guess it was not our time yet.
Thanks DAvid for the file pictures. Amazing!

Thanks David. Early Google Earth shot pretty much shows exactly where this new thing is, but it is a sharper cut right now. Funny how you don't notice gradual changes, but it went from the last back to the first....in a day. That is a lot of sand, and since 2009 I think it had filled in even more! There is a big hole out there.
