With headquarters near the Cali coast, it’s a no-brainer that our team here at Vapur, and our families, has summer plans to lounge, surf and swim as much as possible at the beach. We can guess that many of you have similar plans this summer, no matter which coast you’re on. But before you find yourself burying your feet in the sand, shading your face under your sun hat, or learning how to SUP, Vapur offers up a handy prep list to make the most of your day at the beach.
Here are some must have’s for your beach bucket, with our Beach “Bucket” List. With a little something for everyone in the family, our list will keep you cool and hip whether your plans include building towering sand castles, catching the biggest waves, or just getting lost in the infinite horizon.
Vapur’s Top 10 Beach “Bucket” List:
1 — Fill and freeze at least one Vapur Anti-Bottle for each member of the family. Although jumping into the waves seems to cool you off, don’t forget that your body is still losing water through sweat! Refuel by keeping your foldable, reusable, BPA-free Vapur Anti-Bottle handy. Pop them in the freezer the night before your trip to keep your water cool throughout the day.
2 — Bring plenty of waterproof, all natural sunscreen. To find the best sunscreens that protect without nasty chemicals, visit the Environmental Working Group’s Sunscreen Guide.
3 — Don’t forget to protect your eyes with sunglasses that are 100% protected from UVA and B rays. There are also plenty of options for the little ones.
4 — Choose a wide-brimmed, UV-rated hat to cover your face, neck, and shoulders from the harsh summer sun.
5 — Pack simple, healthy snacks—Most beaches nationwide don’t serve food and many that do, offer unhealthy foods, sweets and sodas. So, pack a healthy picnic and chill all day long without the beach bloat and sugar crash!
6 — Bring a reliable, practical beach tote. Waterproof, mesh bags are great because they allow the sand to fall through so you won’t tote the beach home with you.
7 — Bring plenty of over-sized beach towels for lounging, picnicking, and diaper changing!
8 — If the beach you’re visiting is dog friendly, why not bring the pup? With some doggy treats and a favorite toy, Fido can chase waves all day.
9 — With kids, beach balls and buckets galore, you may want to invest in a toy hauler. We find that the big-wheeled beach wagons plow through the sand for a smoother ride.
10 — Pack a good book!
