Bournemouth artificial reef and bodyboarders

The folks over at MagicSeaWeed popped up some pics of the new Bournemouth artificial reef breaking, they are here).

The below photo illustrates the wave essentially folding over onto itself as the water sucks off the sandbags (I'd like to know how deep it is... I'm guessing it's very shallow). Also, I'm not sure I can find a single surfer in this photo... they are all bodyboarders. They are bodyboarders because the wave produces a form that lends itself to a bodyboard and not a surfboard. A similar thing was seen with Mt. Reef in New Zealand.
