Summertime means chilling at the ocean beach, eating mountains of ice cream, and getting gorgeously tanned. Unfortunately, some people found out that suntan lotion has a few side effects, as well. Mostly, bad luck and beach fun turned into awkward situations.

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the popular The Tonight Show, asked his viewers to share their biggest, worst beach blunders and funny accidents. “It’s Hashtags time! Tag a tweet with #BeachFail and then tell us about a funny or weird thing that happened to you at the beach. Could be on the show!” he tweeted. Check out this list of the beach activities turned sour from this hilarious Twitter thread, keep scrolling, upvote your favorite funny fails, and leave a comment about why you liked them. If you still crave some more amazing challenges, check out our other posts on Jimmy Pallon's Twitter posts here, here, and here.

Sea, sand, and sun should be all about fun but they’re not, as these people’s responses to Fallon’s challenge will show you. Beware. Some of these stories will have you cringing with embarrassment. Others will have you wondering how something like this can be real.

One Twitter user admitted that a police helicopter spotlight found him making love to his wife on the beach. At night. While looking for a suspect. The officers told the couple to get a room. Another social media user told the Internet how a seagull stole her food and bikini top, leaving her topless in front of the entire beach. While a third person recounted how she swam in the dark in Florida, only to keep getting “nudged” by something in the water. She later found out it was shark mating season.

I would be worried seeing that from a distance. Also who naps on straight sand without a towel.

Now, you might be thinking that you’ll never swim again if there are vicious, man-eaters everywhere. But I’m here to let you know what to do in case you run into a shark! Shark season in Florida usually starts in January and ends in April. You should always swim in a group and avoid cloudy water; don’t swim with bleeding wounds, especially during or after twilight. You should also remove any jewelry or bright clothing, because shiny and high-contrast objects attract sharks. If you see a shark — get out of the water.

We were driving along an unsealed back road one day and on the side of the road a couple were at it in broad daylight. I’m all for outdoor fun but you gotta at least try and be inconspicuous.

Shark expert Richard Peirce told CNN that during a shark encounter, you should stop panicking and maintain eye contact with the animal. If the shark’s attacking, you ought to make yourself as big as possible and fight tooth and nail. Sharks aren’t bears so don’t play dead. But if a shark is just passing by, you should make yourself seem as small as possible and slowly back away.

A huge number of Americans go to the beach each year. According to the 2012 Statistical Abstract of the United States, a whopping 58.67 million people did so in 2010. That’s a fifth of the country! Just remember, if you’re in Florida, keep an eye out for shark fins in the water. Otherwise, your beach fail could be so bad, it might end up on Jimmy Fallon's Twitter thread.

My kids were swimming in the ocean. Shallow water. I saw a fin! My first reaction of cause was to shout SHARK at the top of my lungs. Then the culprit jumped. It was dolphins playing. It was me feeling like a complete arse.

We don’t have spring break in Australia but going from American movies would it be because of all the flashing titties and nudity?
