Our Vision of Beach Restoration and Preservation

We advocate a managed retreat strategy to restore both Ocean Beach south of Sloat and Sharp Park. At Sloat, our vision involves:

A long-term plan to relocate threatened infrastructure
(including the south of Sloat Great Highway, the two oceanside parking lots and the sewer lines underneath them).

The cleanup of all the rock and rubble littering the beach.

The use of sand dunes as the primary tool to slow erosion.

For Sharp Park, we advocate the decommissioning of the golf course, the removal of the rip-rap berm, and a full restoration of the wetland.

Erosion at OB Wed AM

Surfrider member Bill McLaughlin and Crescent Calimpong
went out Wednesday morning to take a look at what was happening.

Here Bill is staring down at the fresh erosion
below the road at the northern parking lot at Sloat.

You should have seen his face when he realized what he was standing on!

Just beyond the southern parking lot at Sloat
the guardrail along the highway has started to fall towards the beach.

  1. WOW! So are cars still driving on that road or is it closed off?

  2. SF Department of Public Works closed one of the southbound lanes last week.
