Modifier // to a verb (Stretches).. Incorrect

The ocean... a stretch as far as the eye could see...

This is like saying that the ocean was a stretch (the ocean was "not easy to do/believe", though that is probably informal). I don't think we can use the noun stretch (this particular meaning) without an "of X" after it.

The ocean, a stretch of water larger than any other... ← This is fine.
The ocean, a stretch larger than any other... ← This is wrong.
