If it can be surfed currently leave it alone. Concentrate on the places that are not surfed. 1. Work out what needs modifying to make breaks in your area; 2. Work out how to work towards making it happen, involve lots of people 3. Sell others on the idea that slow is good. Good for budgeting, marine ecology and testing/feedback on the system changes 4. Have the necessary equipment ready for a low tide and/or no swell

In 1995 I attended the 2nd International Artificial Surfing Reef Symposium in San Diego. I agree with @makesurf, artificial surfing reefs should be located where the will not affect surf breaks we already enjoy. I hope that someday that expertise and money get together and artificial reefs perform well.

Having spent from 1982-2001 designing reefs, it should be obvious that 10-20 ton granite capstones,in a triangle at least 100 yards long, at a surface exposed at -1 foot low tide are fundamental requirements.
