Spend a little time on the beach and you will see a class of beachgoers that spend a greater portion of their day on the beach. These are the people that surf, jog, volleyball, lay out for hours on end. A few beach bum tips will help you shed your power tie in no time. What is a professional beach bum? It is a person who spends most of their free time on or around the beach. Some may commute to the sand, but most live near the ocean.

Sunset Cliffs is located in the Ocean Beach district of San Diego. As an underdeveloped strip it maintains its charm as an attraction during the early evenings. Locals line up on the rocks and watch the sun make its way into the ocean providing a spectacular view.  Photographers make their way to the area to catch some of the most spectacular sunsets in the country.   Because it is underdeveloped people can get hurt on the rocks.
