These images of Surfrider beach starting showing up on Instagram this morning. That Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project is the the cause of it. They cause the beach to errode so much, the city decide to dig up the beach and place huge boulders in front of the wall to protect it.

Here is a statement from Surfrider LA

The Surfrider Foundation is dismayed that City and County officials have chosen to drop boulders on the beach at Malibu in order to protect a historic landmark from erosion at First Point. Emergency seawalls are inevitable without proactive planning to accommodate ongoing erosion and the impacts of sea level rise. Surfrider continues to advocate for soft beach nourishment solutions at the Adamson Estate and a seasonal management program to encourage flows to exit Malibu Lagoon to the west at Third Point. We are calling on all stakeholders to come to the table and develop short- and long-term sustainable solutions that protect the beach at Malibu.
