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.
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.)
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.
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.
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!
The beachBUB Protection Plan is included with your purchase.

A week ago we left for a trip to Hilton Head Island. Two hours into the trip I realized I had left my beachbub umbrella at home. Believe me I wasn't happy. We stopped for dinner around 7:30 pm on a Friday evening and I took a chance and called the customer service number for the company. To my amazement an actual person answered!!! Long story short within 15 minutes the wonderful folks at beachbub had arranged for overnight shipping and helped with the shipping cost. Not only is this the best beach umbrella on the market (now I have two) but the customer service was far and beyond extraordinary. Thanks to the entire beachbub team for going over and beyond helping us have a perfect beach week. Do yourself a favor and purchase from this company!!!
Umbrella system was delivered in 1 day. The quality is really good. I used it at the beach yesterday, it was easy to set up and worked better than any I’ve seen. As the day progressed, it got windy and other umbrellas started blowing away or had to be folded up. The beach Bub umbrella remained steady. I’m very impressed
My wife wanted an umbrella and we researched several finally landing on the beachBUB....in part due to radio advertisements...but the only bad thing I can say about this umbrella is why didn't I invent it first. It's very easy to set up and the best beach umbrella I've used without a worry of whether it would blow over or not. I highly recommend it!
If you're on the fence about buying beachBUB over cheaper alternatives on Amazon, JUST BUY BEACHBUB. This is 100% a "buy it right or buy it twice" kind of situation.
The beachBUB held up SO well in the wind, and unlike our friends' umbrellas that creaked and swayed like crazy in the wind, ours stayed pretty firm. It's an ingenious setup and an excellent, high-quality umbrella. All our friends were particularly interested in the gopher tool, for some reason!
This is the 2nd system that we have purchased. Nothing is wrong with the 1st one! We go to Ocean Isle every year with several families and we have several different types of umbrellas. I like this system so much that I literally threw away 2 good beach umbrellas . They are definitely worth the price and are extremely easy to put up and there is no need to worry about having to re-dig a hole or hang on to the umbrella with windy conditions. The tray system is also a plus, holds your drinks and you can just about put whatever you want to on it. Hanging beach towels on the hooks with keep the sand off of them. We will probably end up purchasing at least 2 more in the near future. A great buy!!!
This umbrella is wonderful!!!
We went to Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago and use the umbrella for the first time. We used it at the beach 4 times that week and it worked great. The set up was easy and watching the video helped. to set it up. It withstood the ocean winds with no problem and So far I am very pleased with it. The only thing that would make it better is if it tilted.
Love the new colors. I bought the yellow so easy for kids to spot on the beach. Design is awesome. Bag is well made and roomy.
Windy beaches.. not a care in the world. No holding onto the umbrella so it won’t impale someone on the beach.. the best purchase for the beach! If in doubt….buy it!
