Potential that usually goes nowhere - This beach was closed for a week following a shark sighting. It's perpetually closed out (except for the 1998 El Nino and subsequent runoff flow/sedimentation buildup, when it actually FIRED). Math? Look for the next "kid," beyond that, grap a photog and get shots of yourself pulling into picturesque 2-foot closeouts. Oh, if only there was sand buildup...the potential.
