    Over the weekend I went with my wife and frags to vidal, and was a bit dissapointed at how the sand has taken over everything, it has almost covered the reef. Now the one thing I wanted to know, what causes this, and will it recover?

    It must be all the storms that have been hitting out coastline, MagMan. And yes - but nature will take care of itself..... things like this happen all the time in nature. It's nature's force, and unfortunately us humans cannot really do much about it.
    BUT, mother nature always "corrects" itself as well.

    Magman. With the hectic swells we have had recently, we should expect these things to happen. Now just to wait for mother nature to sort things out :)
    PS. RBay vs Durban Angling is on :yeahdude:

    one mans dilema is another mans paradise, the surf has been cooking at certain spots after the hefty deposit of sand. we have been getting barreled off our nuts at nahoon corner in about a foot of water, my fins actually scraped the bottom on wave i got barreled there on 2 weeks ago.. the borad breakage percentage is also up so the surboard repair buisness is booming..

    i do agree that it causes havoc with the reefs though. im wanting to take a trip to the kei but im scared the one gully i dive will be ancle deep...
