"June grass", a green algae, I don't think any one has records on it but seems to be coming in earlier and staying through the late fall. Usually shuts down the surf fishing late spring. Increased nutrients in the water from more people in the area a likely contributor: more people = more nutrients, especially when you try to grow grass on the barrier island, requires fertilizer and irrigation that moves the fertilizer... oh and it was a problem before the oil spill, no need to go there.

Why does it affect the surf more than the bay?
