The WaveWam teepee is surprisingly wind-resistant for a structure made of materials that weigh a mere ten pounds.
The six-foot-tall teepee takes about ten minutes to assemble. First, you fit together the collapsible bamboo-and-aluminum poles and canvas.
Rest of the country, earmuff it for a minute: While everyone else is back-to-school sweater shopping, we lucky Angelenos are just hitting our summertime beach-going stride with a couple months of warm weather left. In even better news, a pair of local surfers have dreamed up the perfect portable surfside accessory: the WaveWam Teepee.
This six-foot canvas-and-bamboo structure is so much more fashionable than a beach umbrella but just as easy to tote, since it comes with its own canvas carrying case and weighs only ten pounds. Designed by the brand manager for Venice motorcycle-surf shop Deus ex Machina, Stefan Wigand (along with help from rad surf blogers Matt Titone and Drew Innis), the teepee was a hit with their surfer friends in Malibu last year. After shredding tasty waves, their pals vibed on the ’60s Cali-cool style as well as its usefulness (two to three people fit inside).
Best of all, the price is reasonable ($295), and it’s made right here in L.A. Since the teepees are made to order (hey, you can’t expect surfer types to plan ahead too much, now can you?), delivery can take up to two weeks. But that’s a small wait for your own endless summer.
