Beaches are open all the time. In fact, you have a right to be below the mean high-tide line on any shoreline in California, so you may lawfully ignore any "private beach" signs you see as long as you stay close to the water.

That said, lifeguard stands are generally unstaffed in the winter, at least north of Los Angeles. Lifeguard services are limited and you should stay out of the water because there is essentially no availability of rescue services. The water is generally too cold for swimming without a wetsuit anyway.

Since they opened that access gate, there has been a fairly steady flow of beachgoers. Now, he has an andy gump right next to his pristine white garage and a bunch of people with kids running across pch on the weekends.

He could have side stepped this entire issue and bought the lot that was for sale right next to Dukes restaurant. That would have provided safe beach access, a very decent parking area, and room for proper rest rooms and showers. The adjacent properties would have been the restaurant, a flood control wash, and an apartment building.

I know its easy for me to say oh, just buy and donate a lot on pch, but he is already quite an active philanthropist. This would have benefited all parties involved and made him look pretty good.

i freedive with a monofin.

usually in the winter our water in SoCal is like around the low 50s or mid 50s... 54 or 55 tops.

you can't use a spring suit. you need an open cell wetsuit at least 5mm thick for winter if you get cold easily.. 3mm if you don't plan to go to depth.

it's colder up north.

hope this helps.

If it rains, stay out of the water for the next 3 days!!! You don't want to swim with runoff.
