A string of artificial islands off the coast of New Jersey and New York should be an opportunity for surfers to have the islands made in a way that makes the best use of the swell.
This sounds like a bad idea:
‘‘Our idea is to build a chain of islands, like a long, slender banana. The wave action and storm surge will reflect off these islands and go back out to sea rather than hitting the coast.

The thing is, Long Island is, basically, one huge barrier island, with seven-and-a-half million people living on it.
