Buoyed by the “successful” implementation of the Bournemouth artificial reef, the local council were headhunted to create a super reef at Fuerteventura. The limited time frame for the project led these geniuses to abandon the geotextile bags and decided to scuttle a ship instead. In hindsight they have admitted that they rushed the decision to use the first ship that became available. A spokesman for the council said “it generally works better at high tide”

Great pic!! but not sure how a wave rebuilds itself so fast after passing such a large object? photoshopped? not accusing, but just unsure and curious....

Also if the wave comes in at the right angle and the period is big enough to wrap around.. sickness

hahaha, do you really think that ship looks sea worthy?? its been there for about 15yrs or so.. the sand banks created by the wash around it are responsible for the spanking waves you see above....
