The Brevard County Commission approved funding for a feasibility study to be done on the proposed artificial reef a 1,000 feet off the Space Coast yesterday. The proposed reef will stabilize erosion, reduce the need for beach re-nourishment, create a habitat for marine life, and best of all create a world class wave for local surfers.

Scientists working on the project claim that the reef will provide ridable waves 300 days a year and average ride length of 40 seconds which is unheard anywhere on the East Coast.

Some notable completed artificial reef projects include El Segundo in Los Angles, Cables & Narrowneck in Australia, and Mount Maunganui in New Zealand.
