Kite Beach Migration

The sand on kite beach migrates annually.  Big surf  brings kite beach sand, wind takes the sand away. The problem comes when there is a lot of wind but not much surf. This is what happened in 2014 on Kite Beach, so unfortunately there will not be a kite beach by mid July unless Hurricane Season kicks up heavy surf.   Most people confuse “Migration” with “Erosion”. Kite Beach does not have a problem with Erosion, rather it was really windy in 2014 and there was not much big surf.  So enjoy what beach we have now because  Kite Beach will be GONE soon. fortunately, the Sand Migration stops in September and Northern Currents start to replenish Kite Beach.
