    Its nice that you ask people to clear off the beach at 7:00PM. But is that really possible to be do? There will be plenty of people who would like a dunk around that time of the day.
    They used to do it at the crack of dawn.

    Not a bad idea after being down there last year and seeing the chaos and fights that started at the end of the night I completely understand why they’re shutting the beach early and while its light.
