Monday Morning Wave

In the US we dont have much to thank our Army Corps of Engineers for. More often than not they create a mess of our coastline, and my home state of New Jersey is a perfect example. In the town of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico the Army Corps decided to install a jetty to help the local fisherman with getting their skiffs, or yolas, through the shore-pound during the winter. What was supposed to be a small, still-water harbor behind the jetty, filled in with sand in no time, and to our delight a gut-wrenching wave formed over the sandbar out front. Carlos Cabrero about to get intimately acquainted with the sand.
