Beachbum should get a lot of use from this...
March 26, 2013
Living 10 minutes from the beach, and spending much of my time there during the summer, I have been looking for a beach umbrella to provide some protection from the sun. Shade is essential as any beach bum knows, since the sun burns not only your skin, but also the sand under your feet - imagine walking on lava rocks, which is what it's like on the hot days.
I have a large 10 x 10 canopy currently, but it's a beast to carry around, since I generally park a mile or so away at a friends house and walk to the beach from there.
The sport-brella allows me to shed some wieght while serving the same purpose of giving protection from harmful UV rays as well as scorching hot sand
Pros:provides much needed shade on hot days on the beach.
Cons:could be a tad bit bigger, although I think there is a slightly larger one (oh well)
