I mostly go to Wrightsville these days despite growing up at CB and Kure. I've wondered how it was breaking there with the renourishment, but haven't had a chance to get down there.They just dredged and filled in the beach here. It has been going on for a couple months and they are just about done with the entire island. It has completely destroyed all of the sandbars and there are only a few spots that break now unless there is solid swell in the water. This nor’easter seems to be shifting the sand around quite a bit so hopefully we get some fresh bars out of it.
They typically do it every few years depending on how bad the erosion is from hurricanes or big winter storms. The beach is nice and big now but it has caused a very steep drop off and shorebreak on most of the island. The sand quickly drops from the beach to probably about 5-6 feet deep at high tide. I predict this will be a busy season for our lifeguards due to this.
