Most of you will still be having a look at color. Oh, that is quite alright, because it is still a vital part of the beach ethos. Your colorful beach umbrella must stand out head and shoulders above the rest. You go to the beach to have a good time and relax. You no longer lie in the sun because it has become just too darn hot. You would be burned to a cinder if you did today, and worse still, cancer could come a calling and crawling all over your skin. That is why your wide, big beach umbrella comes in handy. So, let us begin that again. You go to the beach to have a good time and relax, and lie under your umbrella, watching the birds and the world go by.
Or watching the guys flex their muscles, if you are on the other side of the sex coin. Yes, that’s right, boys and girls; you also go to the beach to show off. And that is why your beach umbrella must be a stand out feature. You do not want those commercial legends burning in your eyes; you want to see something pleasant on which the sunglass shaded eye can rest. Yes, it’s not a beach competition, even your next door neighbors’ beach brollies must stand out stylishly and colorfully. And you can all get that right with your beach umbrellas today if you shop a little more thoughtfully and precisely.
If money is no option for you, well that is alright then, the sky is the limit. But even so, and this is where cash-strapped consumers do have some advantage, not withstanding their own pitfalls to do with purchasing cheap knockoffs that break the moment they have got to the beach and unfolded their umbrella, you still need to be careful. All good and well that you are happy to spend on style and color, but like the cheaper versions, even the priciest umbrellas, touted for the beach or otherwise, can come apart at the seams just as easily as it was for you to click the purchase button in front of you.
Spend a little more time focusing on the materials that the beach umbrellas are made from. This will, of course, include the fabric that the wide shade is made of and the pole used to keep it upright. And shop with a little more brain cell capacity and a lot less emotion. There is still a perception that the bigger and heavier the umbrella, the less likely it will be for any breeze or wind to gust the umbrella over and away. It has a lot more to do with the way the umbrella is shaped. Pole size and pinions do count, but even for umbrellas, for the beach or the rain, a little bit of scientific nous and ingenuity counts for a lot.
And then again, many of you will want the umbrella to stay upright in the sand anyway.
