Saunton Sands - under attack from the sea

The surf at Saunton Sands this morning during one of the recent high spring tides was approx.8  to 10 feet & clean. One of the few surfers brave enough to take the plunge had his board broken in half by a large wave at high tide.

Braunton Burrows also lost approx 10 metres of foredunes! Such is the power of the ocean. A combination of rising sea levels caused by global warming is already having an impact in N.Devon.

This begs the question, how long before Braunton Burrows becomes a beach & surf zone?
