Do your umbrellas have a UPF rating?

Yes, we prioritize UV protection which is why each of our umbrella canopies has a 50+ UPF rating (the highest rating available).

What's the best beach umbrella that stays in the sand?

Our beachBUB® umbrella system has been voted the best beach umbrella in the world thanks to its stability and safety even in windy conditions. The design of our windproof beach umbrellas is specifically geared to keeping your umbrella safely in the sand all day long.

Can my umbrella be repaired?

Lost your Sand Gopher or have a damaged umbrella canopy? Don’t fret. Instead of buying an entirely new umbrella system, you can simply purchase the replacement parts necessary to get your umbrella back in tip-top shape.

How-Tos & Useful Tips

How do I set up the beach umbrella?

Setting up your beachBUB® umbrella is quick and easy. Simply visit our setup page for a complete video tutorial and some extra helpful tips.

What is the best way to secure a beach umbrella against high wind danger?

beachBUB® was created with beach umbrella safety in mind. As a result, we’ve produced the ultimate umbrella anchor. Folding up to the size of a paperback book, the beachBUB® sand anchor can be filled with 125 pounds of sand to keep your umbrella stable in winds of up to 44 mph.

How much sun does a beach umbrella block?

Our umbrella systems aren’t just made to be great beach umbrellas for wind. Each canopy has a UPF rating of 50+, ensuring it doesn’t just keep you cool in the summer heat, but also blocks 98% of the sun’s rays.

The sun moves during the day, should I move my umbrella?

Although it’s possible to keep moving your umbrella to block the sun, an easier way to keep yourself protected is by using our SunVisor, which mimics the action of a tilting umbrella or sunshade and gives you loads more shade without the hassle of moving your beach shade around.

How do I clean and care for my portable beach umbrella?

Each of our lightweight but heavy-duty beach umbrellas is made to withstand the elements and be super easy to clean. After every use, simply use a cloth or towel to remove any sand from your umbrella frame, canopy, and in between the top and bottom poles. Ensure all the parts of your umbrella are completely dry before returning them to your portable carry bag.

Can I use my beach umbrella in a patio/poolside setting?

Converting your beachBUB® into a pool umbrella or patio umbrella would require fitting it into an umbrella base not made by our company. Although it is possible, we advise against using any umbrella stands or accessories not made by beachBUB® as this could cause significant damage.
