If you look close you can see the client I was flying in to pick up. The beach can be a great landing option, but it hides some nasty traps that can do damage if not careful. The side slope can be a problem if you are not used to dancing on the rudder pedals. Mud, fine sand, and hidden ridges lend them selves nicely to sudden stoppage. Not to mention that the wind almost always blows perpendicular to your landing course. This beach landing was a no-brainer, but there are others that will give you a run for your money.
