A sand bag the size of a cement bag weighs 100 lbs. Any potato chip bag with 100 lbs in it will bust open when a wave pushes it into another one if not before. Vincecate 22:22, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I'm not too sure about real tubes myself. It would still work if the tubes consisted of little bags, though (but the construction would be a bit more expensive). It's not exactly science, but a small child can't open a bag of chips because sealing is quite strong and heavy stuff like cement is sold in much weaker material (like paper) which still holds. And a wave is not a car crashing into the "curtain", it's an extremely powerful but gentle force. This is something that needs experimenting I guess. I'll add your comments, thanks!
