Geo bags and beach skimming are only dealing with the symptoms of the problem, not the cause. I remember sometime in the mid ’90s extreme erosion occurred between Sharkies and the mouth of the Belongil.
It was sadly ironic to me at the time that Council had been dutifully skimming the beach just north of Sharkies a few days before the storm event that caused the damage.
It was if Ma Nature was saying to us ‘all your efforts are futile’. And this is indeed the case until the rock-works at Main Beach are redesigned to direct the flow of sand northward, unimpeded, as it always used to.
