BEACH TIP #1
As February is soon coming to an end, March promises lots of sunshine and days lounging at the beach. I go to the beach as much as I possibly can. During spring and summer that can sometimes mean 2-4 times a week if my work schedule is good to me. Over the years, I’ve tried many different things to make going to the beach as pleasant as possible. Having the proper items at the beach can make a beautiful day at the beach a very comfortable one too. Beach tip number one that I’m sharing today is having a great beach towel. I’ve used countless towels over the years. Bath, high end name brand, hotel quality and blanket towels. The best by far are surf shop towels. A lot of brands start off soft and velvety and colorful but over time they lose that feel and the color fades. Surf shop towels stay soft and the bold colors last after countless uses and washes. They also don’t get thinner over time like other towels do. Always wash your towel before use other wise terry cloth balls will end up all over your skin and hair when you towel off after a swim. Never reuse a beach towel once it’s been used at the beach. Wash and dry all fabric items from the beach before reuse. This will eliminate skin rashes and other irritations from growing bacteria. Surf companies that carry good quality towels are Roxy, Quiksilver, Billabong and Volcom.
