Ongoing Research Request
Used to have this request in the now defunct forums, but reviewing the search engine referrals (california surfers wetsuits law nudity to be specific) this morning reminded me it hasn’t been here in too long.Â As part of an article I’m trying toÂ finish, I’m interested in any first-person (or otherwise verifiable) accounts of law enforcement action taken in California against people changingÂ on the beach, especially in and out of wetsuits.Â Â Â

Everyone’s heard stories, and I think some of them are on the verge of urban legend status, but as part of the research for an article I’m trying to finish, can anyone share any first-person reports of dress code enforcement by lifeguards or others at California beaches?Â Swim suit too small or too low? Towel slippage while changing into or out of a wetsuit?Â Citations, warnings or a good stern lecture?Â Appreciate any help either in the comments or via e-mail, and will use no names without permission.
