    Been going to beach alot. Wondering what people use to set up on the beach for long hours to be comfortable and get some relief from the sun?


    I had a real cheap canopy I used that I just found out the hard way DOESNT have uv protection.

    lol

    Yes.
    I learned the hard way also, that most umbrellas and EZUPs don't have UV protection...I was a lobster for a few days :rofl:

    Grew up working beach service, setting these same umbrellas up every day for summers on end. They are nearly indestructible and will last you years. We used them every single day in the summer and they would last a decade (given they would have some wear and tear, but still rent-able), so for personal use, who knows how long. I can't say how many times I've watched the aluminum frames on those easy-ups snap in a stiff breeze, and the same for those plastic Walmart umbrellas. Just take care of it and it will outlive you basically. Had mine for going on 8 years now, and it was an old one from work when I got it!

    This link is just the first one I found, and I know they are expensive, but you can find deals out there. They will outlast any umbrella or Easy-Up tent like you showed above. Quality over Quantity in this case.
