I don't get it, he's a Lab... ra... Doodle!!! Labs and Poodles are supposed to like the water! We've never taken him to a beach, but somehow I think he would be fine there.
Once a couple of years ago (he'll be 4 in November), we got him in, not easily, he's 58 pounds ok,... and I didn't handle it very well, instead of letting him figure it out, I was nervous and pushed him quickly to the steps... maybe I scared him more... I don't think so, because he was afraid then too.

I've read conflicting things...
What do you think? Love to hear your ideas!
