By the northern end of The Granites beach section the shoreline begins to oscillate owing to large beach rhythms, up to 3 km in length. Along the Long Beach (N) beach section (148G) these rhythms dominate the shoreline. They are produced by the increasingly higher waves, and represent both points of bar attachment on the protruding horns, and areas of large scale rip formation in the bays. The increasing wave height also widens the surf zone to over 400 m wide by 28 Mile Crossing.
