You didn't get the memo? That law was quietly implemented while all the citizens slept on Christmas Eve.

You also now need a license and registration to own and / or operate a 12" plastic sand shovel.

Where there's a will, or a deficit, there's a way.

The atmosphere is way more uptight than when we were kids.

The crowd in power, especially in coastal / urban areas, are a real piece of work. On the surface they try to PR themselves as these Green, LGBT friendly, progressive demigods and meanwhile, they are in reality busy bodies who want to micromanage everything, way more than any of the good old boys ever considered.

At the end of the article "... the ordinance also prohibits digging any hole deeper than 18 inches into the sand except where permission is granted for film and TV production services only."

The crowd behind running everyone out of SD beaches is the older bunch that used to party at the beach non-stop back in the day. They ended up buying on the water and then wanted the new batch of kids run out of the area. They got it too.

The question is will law enforcement enforce it or give you a warning ? Just go to a state beach instead.
