I believe that the Rev was saying that if it is legal to collect the sand, then you should collect it form as far out from the shoreline as is feasible. The purpose is to collect clean sand that hasn't been exposed to pollutants. The waves act as a giant protein skimmer and all the gunk gets deposited on the beach. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong!
