Kiwis will do anything to drink at the beach, it seems.

This group of New Year's Eve revellers got busy at low tide on Sunday and spent the early afternoon building a sandcastle in the middle of the Tairua estuary, a holidaymaker, who asked not to be named, said.

A Coromandel-wide liquor ban is in place over the New Year period, which means no alcohol in public places, including beaches.

Once the crew's creation was complete, they installed a wooden picnic table and chilly bin.

The tide soon came in and they cracked open a few cold ones, the witness said.

Upon building their sandy fort, members of the group were reported to have said the liquor ban didn't apply to them as they were "in international waters".

The holidaymaker said the group was seen drinking into the night, watching the fireworks from the relative safety of their picnic table.

...

Waikato eastern area commander Inspector John Kelly said police weren't aware of the novel attempt to circumvent the liquor ban.

"That's creative thinking - if I had known that I probably would have joined them."

The sandcastle was still visible and intact on Monday morning.

We still drink at beaches in San Diego. Just have to be a bit more discreet.

Drucking Funks!

International Waters are 12 nautical miles out.

They must be jumping the gun on Global Warming.

These unionized Nazi fucks in red trunks are very fucking annoying: why the fuck do they have time and energy to run around looking onto people's beverages or enforcing the 3-ft dog leash rules? Is it because there are much more of of them then necessary for purely life-saving duties?

In the states, the local cops would have hired snipers to take out the jihadist revelers.

I've mostly done it at Imperial Beach, and since they don't have a police department, it's sherriff's on mopeds that do the checking. And yes, there are WAY more law enforcement than what we need.

I haven't seen lifeguards enforcing it, guessing because tickets are the exclusive revenue stream of our boys in blue.

I only saw lifeguards in pickups/ATVs enforcing alcohol/leash rules on Grandview/Beacon's Beach. The didn't issue any tickets, as far as I can tell, only harassed people.

I totally Red cupped it last time i was at Imperial beach! Two years ago, in august. It was a lovely morning, the water was a perfect 82°, I surfed with the dolphins and it was awesome.

They all squatted and took a beer piss at once, the island dissolved, and the taxpayers had to pay for their drunken rescue.

I don't think they allow dogs at all in IB. Walked mine on the beach the other week, and got an announcement from the lifeguard building speakers. I just kept walking south on the beach, they didn't do anything. If anyone is toting a cooler down all those stairs at Grandview, they've earned their beer.
