What is the beach umbrella?
Any regular beachgoer knows the classic beach umbrella struggle. There are days when the umbrella simply refuses to stand no matter how much you dig, twist, and turn it — not to mention the many times when the umbrella simply flops over or takes flight and bounces across the beach like a dangerous missile.
