Excerpt: The most interesting and consequential special condition was imposed in response to objections raised by Pratte and other members of the Surfrider Foundation. Through the public hearing process required by the CCC for all permits, Surfrider Foundation expressed concerns that the groin project had potential to destroy a relatively popular surfing spot in the area. Surfrider convinced the Coastal Commission that any loss to surfing in the area would result in over-crowding elsewhere; in other words, surfing in El Segundo was an irreplaceable resource. In contrast, several coastal process experts predicted that the groin would not negatively affect surfing and might actually improve surfing conditions. These claims were founded on numerous locations where surfing is associated with groins and jetties. Based on these competing theories the CCC allowed construction of the groin, but required monitoring of surf conditions and held Chevron responsible for the surf conditions in the event that the surf degraded.
