Great App!

I used to spearfish in the Zuma Beach kelp beds next to Malibu Beach and remember the crappy attitude of the residents there toward the "peasants" who dared to use "their" beaches. 90% liberals and they had the attitude of King Louis XIV: "The peasants are revolting? You bet! They stink on ice."

I hope a lot of folks use this app to access their sacred beaches.

The Seascape Beach in Aptos can only be reached by a walk down a long path behind and through the Seascape Resort. So few people know it is open to the public. It’s never crowded and has a spectacular view of the Monterey Bay.

This is not limited to California. Where I go, along Lake Michigan, there is no shortage of people who spend a couple million to buy their house, and then try to restrict access to “their” beach.

Our cousin just married a rich guy (owns 130 fast food restaurants, his own jet, the whole deal) and they recently finished building a 9,000 sq ft weekend house in Malibu. It must be nice!

Weird, if they want to keep people out so bad they should try to buy the beach.

I can’t imagine being so passionate about such a trivial issue.

We were in Maui April 2012. We learned that we could walk down the K beaches through the resorts. There was a trail the entire way. I went five miles one day. I don’t think it was a secret... but there is access. There was also a colony of natives which included a really tacky motor home and a shack made out of scrap wood. I was told that they and their ancestors had owned that land since the beginning of time. Good for them. Except it was also I think a meth lab. LOL

I was fortunate to have work send me that way last year, inspecting the railroad track from Watsonville up to Davenport. I intentionally took a couple days to see some stuff I don’t ever get to see... the hidden beach up by Davenport that you need to walk down the bluff and through an sea-eroded tunnel through the bluff to get to...

Also stopped at some spot where there was an overlook and all these slackers were surfing... was good to just sit and look at the ocean in the sun... after being the week earlier in the desert of SE New Mexico.

I wish I remembered the name... Pleasure Point or Pleasure Beach or something like that.

LA Freepers (if there are any) should see to it that “the underprivileged” have access. Yellow buses sound like a great idea.

Around here we have Government wharves, but few locals use them because every weekend they are filled with Hispanics and Blacks who get really nasty if you invade their space.

Oh the Humanity- polluting yellow buses-

All you Freepers are going to be in big trouble now...

AL Gore is building this:
But Gore’s choice of oceanfront property is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. According to the Montecito Journal, Gore’s new mansion sprawls over 1.5 acres (“we all need to reduce our ecological footprint”); contains fountains, a spa, and a swimming pool (even though Southern California is water starved, and alarmists tell us global warming will cause more severe drought and water restrictions); and contains six – count them, six – fireplaces (because burning carbon-intensive wood in only five fire places at once simply won’t do when entertaining Hollywood friends).

And Al does not want any Americans walking infront of his
His home.(or his liberal Hollywood buddies homes)

Homeowners in Malibu - include some of the wealthiest and most famous people in the country – have long used a variety of means to keep the beaches to themselves including padlocks, gates, menacing signs, security guards and lawsuits.

and beach erosion

One of the really special aspects of the State of Oregon is that all the beaches are publicly owned. NO PRIVATE BEACHES!

All of the beaches in California are also public. There are no privately owned beaches. The point of the article is that the residents are trying to resrrict access to the beaches, effectively making them private. The phone app exposes their tricks.

Gotta be careful if you go onto these beaches. Local skinhead surfers consider these their beaches regardless of what the laws and regulations say, and they will hurt you if you violate what they consider their beach.

On the Great Lakes, the rules are different. For example, in Michigan the beach is owned by the state “up to the ordinary high water mark. This is the point at which the action of waves on shore is apparent.”

“In Ohio, court cases related to beach ownership have been moving up the judicial ladder. A few years ago, the state began charging beachfront land owners a fee for installation of docks that extend into the lake. This fee was charged with the view that the bottomlands on which the docks were constructed was state land. A lower Ohio court disagreed with this interpretation, however, and declared that the actual edge of Lake Erie was the property boundary.”

I hope a lot of folks use this app to access their sacred beaches.

I hope an app like this is ported to other platforms, and can grow to accept other locations around the country.

For California, if I saw a phony sign, I'd make up a professional vinyl stick-on of the same size and style, and plaster it over the original. It would say the same thing, but I'd add, in smaller letters, "Use of deadly force is authorized".

See how long before somebody notices, and hope it doesn't hit the media. :)

All beaches in Hawaii are open to the public with the exception of some military locations.

a really nice large and sort of secluded beach is north of Malibu at Leo Correo State Beach Park, about 15 miles north of Malibu - it even has a small campground on the east side of the Pacific Coast Highway, from which you can walk to the beech

one year we went to Leo Correo with a large group

we covered one section of the beach along the cliff

using an old Parachute

the tide was a little high at the time

and you had to pass through a tunnel in the rock

to get from the main part of the beach

to the little camp we made for our party

we secured the parachute to the rock of the cliff with

some old railroad ties

we did not keep that section to ourselves

we were a large group but we let anybody

join our area and our partying too

the parachute caught the attention of someone

they sent a helicopter to look at our site

and then a Park Ranger

who thought our canopy was ingenuous

and said he’d let his duty to make us take it down slide

until it got dark

and we told him we’d leave by then

and he parted saying just keep the beach clean

everyone remembers it as one of the

best beach parties we had in the 1960s

P.S. It was our Methodist Church college age youth group plus invited friends and our long time MYF leader.

I am amazed there are freepers in the Santa Cruz area... they must be the real social outcasts, since EVERYTHING ELSE goes... It seemed ordinary to find people passed out with needles stuck in their arms along the tracks.

There are ranchers in the mountain states who close off access roads to the National Forest. It has been a problem for years.

Just a FYI, the name of the beach is Leo Carillo, a state beach.

It is a nice beach. Can get a little crowded with all the available parking.

Some nice, more secluded state beaches just south of there are El Pescador, Peidras, and El Matador. Limited parking and a hike down bluffs, but never crowded. One is just south of hag Strisand's house should you want to stroll up there and pay your respects.

Really? When did that happen, that all California beaches went public?

When I lived in California back in the early 80s, there were still beaches that were private.

Recall that Jim Rockford lived on the beach in Malibu in his tenement on wheels.

One back story in the series was that he drew the ire of the local residents, ostensibly because of the nature of his business, but it was a not-so-subtle dig at the real-life Hollyweird elitists who inhabited (inhabit) Malibu.

Beachfront homeowners in the exclusive L.A. neighborhood of Malibu are up in arms about a new smartphone app which provides anyone using it with evaluable information about how to get to the area’s hard to reach public beaches.

Dunno the extent of it, but my understanding was that everything up to the high tide mark was public other than federal land.

Of course, you still had to somehow get to that strip of beach or rocks somehow, and there was nothing stating that landowners had to give you right of way. The public access beach passageways in Malibu were commonly blocked by the residents.

When I lived in LA, I was appalled to find that there were kids in East LA who had never been to the beach. Just a short drive down the Santa Monica Freeway, but somehow it never happened.

Oh u betcha. heheh. I am a very happy contrarian. When I'm not out on the water or at the winery or build sand castles I like to go to river street and annoy the petition-grubbers and eco-communists and blow the minds of the street people with my extremist views...

I think you meant your post for Freeper gaijin

the beach I was referring to was just 15 mi north of Mailbu

Davenport is north of Santa Cruz, which is hours north of Mailibu

you’re right

I spelled Leo Carillio wrong

it was interesting that Mapquest found it anyway

my days at Leo Carillo were in the late 1960s

we seldom encountered it as very busy

at that time

we figured out good fortune came from

more people not wanting to travel up there;

when we’d go surfing

it was usually down in the Oceanside/San Clemente area

that was also where we could have bonfires on the beach at night

(I grew up - 8-18 - up in San Bernardino county)

The beach is owned by the citizens of California, no matter what the rich & famous like to believe. elitism vs. egalitarianism.
