Standard Features On All Barrier Reef Model All-In-One Beach Umbrella Systems
Every beachBUB All-In-One Beach Umbrella System includes the Umbrella, the beachBUB ULTRA Base, the oversized Carry Bag, the Sand Scoop Shovel, a Towel Hook Collar, the Sand Gopher Tool to help you easily create a hole in the sand for your umbrella pole.
Stainless Steel Hardware
The chain and hitch pin as well as the collar bolts on the Barrier Reef Model now feature stainless steel to prevent rusting and corrosion.
Commercial Grade Three Piece Hub Design
A common problem with typical beach umbrellas is canopy inversion. This is caused when the excessive force of the wind pulls the ribs away from the hub system. The average pulling force necessary to disengage a rib from a typical beach umbrella hub is about 40 lbs of pulling force. Our new three piece specially designed hub system has been tested at over 400 lbs of pulling force. We identified the weak link and made it stronger.
Improved Warranty Coverage
We are so confident in the quality of this umbrella system that we are covering every single Barrier Reef Umbrella System with a 3-Year Warranty on the Umbrella Frame and a LIFETIME Warranty on the Umbrella Base. This is in addition to the popular beachBUB 3-Year Protection Plan!
Canopy Tension Adjustment System
One of the major new additions in the most recent model of the Barrier Reef beachBUB Beach Umbrella System is the ability to adjust the tension of the umbrella canopy. We noticed that many other brands of beach umbrellas often struggle with ribs over time poking through the canopy, so we have reinforced the rib pockets on the umbrella canopy and added a T-shaped bracket inside each pocket. This new bracket prevents the rib from wearing on the canopy. It also allows us to insert a small plastic spacer plug in each rib pocket. These spacer plugs can be used to adjust the overall tension of the umbrella canopy. If your canopy is too tight and difficult to open, simply remove as many of the plugs as necessary to achieve the desired canopy tension. Likewise, if the canopy tension is too loose, simply add additional plugs in order to create more tension. (Additional plugs are provided and are located in the pocket of each carry bag.)
The beachBUB Umbrella Canopy is ONLY available in one color - Deep Ocean Blue. Please choose the color of your beachBUB Ultra Base. beachBUB Ultra Colors: Sky Blue, Canary Yellow and Citrus Green.
We Made the Bag Even Stronger
The Barrier Reef System now also includes reinforcement stitching at 11 different stress points on the oversized carry bag and the shoulder strap width has been increased and extra padding added. We’ve made the drawstring and button stop more heavy duty than ever.
The umbrella has been wind tested to 35 MPH so you'll never have to go without shade again. Also all beachBUB All In One Systems now come with the free 3-Year beachBUB Protection Plan.

How It Works
Prepare the Space
If the sand is really dry and powdery, start by brushing away the very top layer of dry sand to make a nice firm flat space for your umbrella base.
Lay the beachBUB flat onto the beach. Use the Sand Gopher Tool by inserting it into the sand through the center hole of the beachBUB. Push the Sand Gopher into the sand giving it a quarter turn twist as you go. Then simply pull the Sand Gopher out and it will remove a plug of sand. Fling the sand out of the Sand Gopher and repeat until you have a hole that is 11 inches deep. Insert the bottom pole through the center hole of the beachBUB up to the orange label. Connect 2 wings to form a pouch. Fill the base halfway with sand. Attach the 3rd wing to form the pyramid base. Completely fill the base with sand. Insert your umbrella into the base, sit down and enjoy a relaxing stress free day on the beach.
The beachBUB Protection Plan is included with your purchase.
The BPP covers all damage and loss. It even covers damage to the umbrella in the unlikely event of an umbrella tipping over due to the base not being completely filled. Check out complete details here.

This is the best umbrella I ever had. The blue color is beautiful! I like how it is built and all the features it has. I'm using it as a patio umbrella for the moment. The size is great too and a good carry case. I'm very happy with this umbrella.
I love the beach bub umbrella. It is so fast and easy to put up. I just ordered my second one.
Use it last weekend at the beach. supper cool :)
We have lived at the beach for 35 years and always struggle with weak umbrellas. With the Beach Bub, there is no worry that the wind is going to lift the umbrella out of the sand because of the unique design. The kit is complete with a tool that digs out the initial hole to place the umbrella pole. My husband often offers the tool to others on the beach struggling to keep their umbrellas standing. The carrying bag is large enough to hold our Beach Bub Table as well .... a great addition! And the customer service at this family owned company is awesome! We posted about our Beach Bub the first day we used it and will never buy another umbrella again. Planning on buying a second!
What a well thought out, quality engineered product! I could not be more pleased with this purchase. The BUB was easy to set up and remained standing when other umbrellas began to fail. Like other reviewers, I had several folks come and check out the BUB, and I’m sure they will be future customers. I also want to give kudos to the customer service folks who went the extra mile with shipping details so that I could receive this order at my vacation destination. I wish your company much success and thank you for producing such a well thought out, high-quality product.
Last year convinced the whole family, this is the best and easiest umbrella to use, EVER.
Best beach umbrella! Easy to set-up, sturdy and love the table accessory. Well worth the money!
So easy to put up and take down. A great purchase.
For anyone considering to buy, yes a little pricey, but the old saying is you get what you pay for. This system blows everything else away ! From the holder digger, solid base and pin system, you have no worries with wind ! Most umbrellas were down the day we went due to wind, not ours - had several people come inquiry - hope you continue your success.
