Back in the early 90s my dad was a contractor and a couple of his customers had beach front homes there. There was a period were a couple huge storms came through washing away TONS of sand and the homeowners paid out of pocket to replenish it. Not sure how it is nowadays but back then they didn't bat an eye. I have a bunch of pics showing the damage and private contractors coming in dumping load after load of sand. Back when you could get away with that kind of stuff lol. Nowadays you need a permit for your permits permit.
