Enjoy the surf, sand and beautiful people; just leave the pigskin at home.

Southern California residents can now be cited by police for playing football on the beaches of America's second largest city.

The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors raised fines to up to $1,000 for anyone who dares throw a football or dreaded Frisbee on beaches in Los Angeles County. KCBS reports a 37-page ordinance was passed on Tuesday that details what beach activities could disrupt or even injure citizens.

While AEG debates building a massive NFL stadium in downtown L.A., residents who attempt to toss, throw, or kick a football or any object on beaches other than a volleyball or beach ball between Memorial Day and Labor Day are criminals in the eyes of Los Angeles.

The pigskin ban is in effect during the peak summer months but the new rules will not be enforced during the cooler and slower winter off-season.
