Surf’s up for new G/FORE umbrella
G/FORE’s latest umbrella is set to make positive waves in even the most miserable weather.
The Shaka – a hand gesture which originated in Hawaii and has become a surfer’s favourite – is the latest light-hearted addition to the range, which has made a serious splash with designs featuring the colourful G/FORE gloves.
After teaming up with Haas-Jordan, the manufacturers of the sturdiest and most dependable umbrellas on the market, G/FORE has added its own distinctive colour and style to complement the growing collection of high-quality gloves, eye-catching footwear and sharp apparel.
The custom 62″ Haas-Jordan design features wind-vents on all eight panels, solid fibreglass ribs, black braided fibreglass shaft, slip-resistant ergonomic handle, and custom epoxy dome handle medallion.
The first three versions – a thumbs-up, a peace sign and…a hand signal which invites the wet weather to go on its merry way – were showered with praise when they were launched.
The G/FORE brand, created by fashion-industry pioneer Mossimo Giannulli in 2011 – founder of the billion-dollar clothing company Mossimo Inc – has made significant strides in its first few years on the golf scene.
And the latest umbrella, which retails at £85, is to set to create a new wave of interest as it ensures golfers stay dry in a downpour.
