Summer is all about escaping the office and enjoying the sun, sand, and surf. A trip to the beach is one of life’s simple pleasures. Whether you’re enjoying some cold drinks with friends, swimming with your kids, or rubbing sunscreen on someone special, you expect the beach to be relaxing. Sadly, not everyone got the memo about proper beach behavior. From coast to coast and all around the world, miscreants and yahoos are mucking up our tanning time.

Here is my list of the Top 10 Worst People at the Beach.

9. People with Too Much Stuff
