Summer is rapidly approaching, and for many Californians, it means that it is time to head off to the beach. The wind and waves are a great way to cool off during the warm summer months, especially in Southern California.
As we get ready to go out and have some good old summer fun, it is important to remember to stay out of trouble. After all, nobody wants to end up needing to pay a fine, or worse. To help avoid that, here is a list of some of the more common rules at California beaches.
These are some of the most common rules from across the state, but some areas, such as LA County, have extra sets of rules. For instance, beachgoers can be fined $1,000 dollars for throwing a football, or similar object, on a beach. Before anyone gets up in arms over this, the rule only applies if the local area lifeguard has deemed it unsafe for the activity to take place. Often times, the rules of the beach are left to the discretion of the lifeguard, so be sure to listen to him or her. The lifeguard is there to keep everybody safe.
So while you are at the beach this summer, be sure to listen to the local lifeguard as well as the previously mentioned rules. This will help keep you safe, and prevent you from getting into any major trouble with the law.
