Sporting Goods Leader Adds Seabreeze Products’ Beach Pockets® and
Beach Pockets® Umbrella to Its Expanding Outdoor Recreation Catalog

Santa Fe Springs, CA – September 22, 2009 -- Bravo Sports, a global leader in the outdoor recreation and sporting goods markets is proud to announce its exclusive partnership with Seabreeze Products. Effective immediately, Bravo Sports will manufacture and distribute Beach Pockets® and the Beach Pockets® Umbrella, Seabreeze Products’ most innovative and top-selling products.

In an exclusive licensing deal brokered between Bravo Sports CEO Tony Armand and Seabreeze Products founder and CEO, Barbara Bigford, Bravo Sports has licensed the patents and obtained the rights to manufacture and distribute Beach Pockets® and the Beach Pockets Umbrella® worldwide. This partnership marks Bravo Sports’ first foray into the beach equipment and accessories market as well as the culmination of nearly a decade of milestones for Seabreeze Products.

Says Armand, “Beach Pockets® and the Beach Pockets Umbrella® are high-quality products that integrate seamlessly into our expanding line of outdoor recreation necessities which already includes many consumer favorite brands such as Quik Shade, Moto Shade, Shade Tech, Quik Shade Décor, and Quik Chair. This partnership provides an incredible entrée into the beach equipment market as well as the opportunity to grow the Beach Pockets® brand through our extensive network of retailers. We look forward to working with Barbara to continue to fulfill her vision for the brand and build on her incredible success.”

"I am delighted with our association with Bravo,” adds Bigford. “Our major product, ‘Beach Pockets®,’ has become a standard for beach umbrellas nationwide by providing protection not only from the sun but also from the dangers of wind-blown umbrellas. The addition of the Seabreeze product line to Bravo’s catalog, with their world-wide distribution channels, will provide an excellent growth opportunity for both companies."

An easy to use product to stop your umbrella from blowing away, Beach Pockets® and the Beach Pockets® Umbrella were created by medical professional, artist and mother of three turned entrepreneur, Barbara Bigford. Patented by Bigford in 2002, Beach Pockets® are designed with three lightweight, collapsible pockets which attach to the umbrella pole via a bracket and retention screw. Just attach Beach Pockets® to the pole, fill the three pockets with sand and then pour the sand back out when you are ready to leave and you’ll never be chasing your umbrella down the beach again!

The Beach Pockets® Umbrella - dubbed “The Million Dollar Umbrella” by Marketwatch - comes with the coordinating Beach Pockets® and features skin-smart fabric that is SPF 50 or SPF 35. Currently available in 7 colors and styles with more options to come, Beach Pockets® can also be attached to the top of the umbrella to hold and protect personal items. Beach Pockets® retail for $19.95 and the Beach Pockets® Umbrella is available for $29.95 - $69.95 depending on fabric and design.
