Daiwa John Holden Beach Buddy. This is the latest version of the successful John Holden designed Beach Buddy. Without doubt this is the best beach shelter on the market today. This actually does what you wanted all the others to do but were no doubt disappointed with. Totally waterproof and windproof the beach buddy can be converted to a simple windbreak thanks to the removable hood section. Designed to fold down for easy transport and storage the shelter provides a large amount of storage space with room for a seat box or chair. Suitable for locating on shingle or sand, the extended skirt can be buried or weighted down for extra stability and protection.
