The sand is usually very dry, with less than 1 percent wetness. Also the sand must have a medium grain size and be well sorted for consistent size, so that all the grains have about the same diameter. The grains are quite spherical in shape with semipolished or frosted surfaces when viewed through a low-power microscope. However, unevenness in surface roughness on the electron microscope level is an important factor for acoustic quality. The pitch of the sound is related to grain size, while the volume of the sound is related to surface texture.

The lifeguard's house, which used to be about 50 meters from the waterline, was almost consumed by the waves. Tree trunks from the previously expansive beach were snapped and the roots laid bare by the raging surf. A year later, a large amount of the sand had returned, but not as much as had been there previously. In Florida, the situation is worse. Storms brewing off the warm Atlantic waters in the summer can turn into hurricanes. They can sweep away miles of Florida beach in a matter of hours.
