When our babe wants to escape the kooks, crowds, heat and mayhem that is summer at the local beach. She finds no better way than to stake her own patch of sand and pop a vintage vinyl. Filmed and Edited By Jay Buttons, Directed Lachlan Leckie and staring Catie Allen.
We want to congratulate friend of the Merchants, CJ Nelson on taking out first-place, back to back wins in both the Mexi Log Festival and the Joel Tudor Duct tape invitational down in Playa La Saladita, Mexico. There’s no denying his ability to shred, but CJ is super humble and has a passion for our sport and its future like no other and we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving.
Keep your eyes peeled for more on the Mexi Log Festival

When we began selling umbrellas a few years back, we made it our mission to do it well. So with the release of our second range; the CANVAS COLLECTION, we are proud to introduce some amazing new prints, materials and components, specifically designed by the Salty Merchants for one soul purpose - to make a beautiful, high quality beach umbrella!
Our Poly Cotton Canvas is treated in a UV and Water resistant coating that protects it from harsh elements, extending the life of the material and print. The underside of the canvas is coated with a block-out film that adds to reducing penetration of harmful UV rays as well as providing an added layer of protection for the material reducing tears and deterioration.
Using a World Forestries certified producer of our wood poles ensures that we are providing a quality product with a conscience.
The poles are also made from off-cuts and otherwise waste timbers and uses a lamination process that also removes the use of harmful fumigation chemicals when importing and exporting.
The finished product is not only Eco friendly but is stronger by over 30%* compared to a solid wood pole of the same size.
This summer have added a polish finish to all metal components.
This additional coating and the smooth nature of the surface protects the metals from possible corrosion and scratching.
We have also custom designed a new handle that is easy and smooth to use, can act as a hook, as well as looks amazing!
Keeping a classic look and feel using natural, unbleached cotton trims. From the 10cm fringe,
to bag straps all the way to the internal piping.
Our aim is to produce quality products, built once and built to last - that don't end up as junk.
To show it, we offer a full one year replacement warranty on parts and assembly.
Presentation is key, so all umbrellas, come dressed to impressed in a recycled carton, tasseled hangtag and canvas carry bag.
