The USC football team traded the turf for a sandy beach a week after spring practice concluded.
Coach Steve Sarkisian, several assistants and about 30 players bonded Saturday in Hermosa Beach.
"Great day at the beach with teammates and coaches! Man I love this TROJAN family," defensive lineman Antwaun Woods wrote on Instagram.
Sarkisian and several players waded into the ocean, including receiver JuJu Smith, who toted a surfboard.
Others stayed on the sand to play cards and volleyball.
After several hours of surf and sand, players boarded a charter bus back to campus.
