A series of fourteen samples was taken along a profile crossing a beach, berm, foreshore slope, plunge point, nearshore, offshore bar, and offshore area to study the changes in the first four moments. The mean grain size and standard deviation reached a maximum in the plunge zone and were also high on the offshore bar. Skewness and kurtosis values were highest in the nearshore and offshore area. The beach represents a phi normal distribution of fine sand which is mixed with varying amounts of coarser material to form the sediments in the other environments.
