Translating Shade to Beach Environment

Post by Corbett3000 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 6:56 am

Hi Team,

I’ve spent some time building shade for a big camp, so I’ve got a lot of in’s and outs down now. What I’m wondering is if any of you have translated your shade building skills to a beach environment and if so what is your favorite setup that’s quick and non-permanent for 1 day use.

The beach is similar with wind, though usually more consistent on direction. You can use playa shelters on the beach, except you need more helpers with shovels and dead man anchors, rather than stakes/screws.

The good folks in Miami throw Love Burn every year on the beach. Maybe try connecting with some of them for tips and advice?
