When I started surf fishing, I quickly noticed that 4 hours spent under the sun, and over the water, was baking my face like a red lobster bisque. Initially, I started drenching my face in a thick layer of sunblock. But, I had some problems with this... 1 - I don't like sunblock. I have read articles online warning that sunblock is unhealthy, and contains chemicals that may be terrible for your health. 2 - Sunblock smells weird. I don't want the smell of sunblock on my hands and on my baits. I worry that fish will smell a residue of sunblock on my lure and then avoid biting it at the last second. I work too hard searching for that one important bite, to take a chance of losing it like this. 3 - Sunblock, when mixed with sweat or splashed with seawater, runs down my face and gets into my eyes. It stings. It's terrible... there must be a better way. So I quickly realized, I could replace liquid sunblock with gear. All I needed was a Sun Buff (aka Gaiter), a Performance Fishing Jersey, and a pair of Fishing Gloves (coming soon!)
I had one more problem... as I began collecting and wearing Sun Buffs, I noticed that when I wore them with my glasses, my breath would fog up my glasses and make it impossible to see. It's really annoying! So I decided, when the time came, I would make a breathable gaiter. So my breath would pass through the breathable holes, and prevent it from fogging up my glasses.
