Taking on the winter shape…already

vb beach pano big-1

The beach is loosing the distinct flatter area of dry sand from the upper beach zone and a continuous sloping curve, typical of the winter shape (or winter berm) has quickly developed for the beach profile. The reason is clearly the strong onshore winds, strong swells and powerful waves crashing onshore. The highest tides are however not reaching the scarps from previous erosion.

In previous years these changes have more typically occur in April/May.
