We are San Diego beach campers and have seen people using their Neso’s on the beach. We started asking people how they liked it and everyone we asked raved about them. We have gone through so many pop-up canopies due to wind and poor quality and sometimes we end up enduring the hot sun because we can’t bring ourselves to haul them down to the beach. When we found out how lightweight the Neso Grande was we were sold. We surprised my parents with one for Christmas and splurged and bought ourselves one also. Such fun prints! I wanted to make sure my kids could easily spot us on the beach when the currents carry them down shore and they lose their sense of direction. We haven’t had a chance to use these yet but can’t wait! Also bought my dad the Neso cap and it looks so nice on him. He says it’s very comfortable. Love giving local companies our business and figured the hat would help spread the word lol.
After trying 3 other beach shades, I can tell you that we're in love with our Neso. The shade is super easy to set up! It comes in a sling bag that has an outside pocket. We've added corkscrew stakes (which we haven't needed) and a small garden shovel in that outside pocket. The shovel helps us fill the bags quicker. Setup is easier than a tent-type shade. With SPF 50 protection, I didn't need to constantly re-apply sunscreen, which was awesome for me, as I'm pale as a ghost. As silly as it sounds, one of my favorite things about this is that the bag is big enough that you don't need to be super particular about how you folks up the shade. It's always going to fit!
I added a video of the shade on the windiest day we had. No problems!
I recommend buying the 2 extra poles. The Grande comes with 2, but I'd like to have the added support of one or two more on very windy days.
Went to the beach for a week (Wrightsville Beach, NC) and used this tent every single day. by the 3rd time setting it up I was an expert even under high wind conditions. If tent is set properly it never moves or needs adjusting. I had two different families coming to ask for advice how to set up their tent, and one guy asking where to buy it. To set it up properly first fill the bags FULL with sand, then stretch the tent as much as possible in all 4 directions (spread the corners), the more the better, it will not break. then dig a small hole to drop the sand filled bags in. then pitch the tent with the 2 poles and you are done for the day (5 min took with two people). I found orienting the tent facing the wind offers the best set up. I was quickly surrounded by Shibumi shades when the wind picked up, but I can also see some families struggling to keep them straight during wind shifts and trying to gain the most shade. This was not a problem for us. Lastly the bag is small and very compact easy to move by a 4 year old kid. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT! LOVE THE COLORS...I got the light blue that you can spot for miles. Also a seagull pooped the tent and I let it dry then use some sand to gently scrub it before packing it like new.
The Neso Grande Tent was fantastic! It was the perfect size/weight to be able to carry to the beach with all of our other gear. It was simple/easy/straight forward to set up. It was simple/easy/straight forward to take down. We used this for three days straight on our last trip to the beach. The first day had 17-21mph wind, and the tent worked fantastically. Days two and three had around 6-10mph or less wind and also worked fantastically. Each day we adjusted the setup to face directly into the wind and WHALA, four adults with our beach chairs were all in the shade. The additional shade behind us was a popular spot for the 4 kids to come and get a few minutes out of the sun. PLENTY of shade for all of us. To me, the biggest surprise was how much room there was. With the wind (average beach wind) blowing into the tent, it really gave a significant amount of headroom throughout the entire tent. I was expecting this to only be the case for the front of the tent next to the support poles. Day 1 setup with the extra wind was not an issue, but I did have a helper this day (it was also my first time setting it up). We laid the tent flat, filled the front bags (into the wind) first, then the back two bags. We used the -fill the bag, put the bag in the hole from filling-, technique. Worked great. No movement after the setup. Days 2 and 3 I did solo. No issues here either. This took a couple of minutes longer than with a helper, but both times it was up and shady in under 5 minutes. It looked great. We got LOTS of envious looks from passers-by, who were carrying their beach umbrellas that they were going to set up. Or worse yet, the aluminum tents that got set up and blew away. I can't think of a better beach accessory. I definitely won't be returning to the beach without my Neso!! Thanks Neso!!
Best beach item I ever purchased. The first day we set this up at the beach was pretty windy. I didn’t watch the video and gave up until my husband and others joined me. In that time I watched a few of the Neso videos on set up and we were able to set it up although it was not perfect. Day 2, I went out early again and set it up ALL BY MYSELF! It’s important to watch those videos folks! By the end of the week I was setting that bad boy up in no time flat!
Things I learned:
1. Pay attention to the wind direction and make sure one edge is facing that direction.
2. Stretch it out and then fill the first bag
3. Move to the bag diagonal from the first and fill that and pull it out (X shape not H) as far as it will go.
4. The third and fourth bags do the same.
5. Get those poles together and put them where you want them at the front (you’ll want to angle them towards the wind if windy.
6. Once you have the poles where you want them (12 in from corner and 6in from outer edge) then dig down in the sand 6 inches or so and place the pole in the hole and fill back up with sand. Don’t be afraid to readjust as needed.
7. Readjust the sand bags as needed and dig down so they are even with the beach. You could even bury them for extra support.
8. When the rain came through and we were huddled under it….it isn’t an umbrella! The rain saturated the Neso and dripped in on us. But it dried quickly afterwards!
1. Get the 2 extra poles so you have 4. We only had 2 and it would have been helpful to have 2 more
2. Bring a small shovel to dig the poles and bags in. I used my hands and feet but it would have been helpful.
I honestly don’t write a lot of reviews but I really loved this product. So easy to carry down to the beach and loved the sun protection. Stick with the set up. It get’s easier! And best of all it’s made in the USA! 🇺🇸
