DO NOT BREACH

Man-made breaching attempt

A report has come in from Stone Lagoon that someone has attempted to illegally breach the lagoon.

This is very bad because:

  1. An illegal breach would devastate Humboldt Surfrider supporter Kayak Zak’s rental business, especially since Big Lagoon remains breached and/or at least very low.
  2. No reason to breach it in terms of impacts to property, especially since it’s now receding anyway and its high level does not affect structures, pasture, or any other infrastructure.
  3. A breach would certainly impact the roped-off snowy plover breeding area currently in place.
  4. Fourth, state parks enforcement may not have the resources to catch the hooligan(s) responsible.
  5. And last, the rumors are some surfers have been talking about breaching it… for obvious reasons. (Emphasis on: rumors.)

BREACHING STONE LAGOON IS NOT OKAY. DO NOT DO IT. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DOING IT, REPORT THEM: 488-2169.

Do not breach!
