​About Us

​Welcome to Seaside Planet

Seaside Planet was founded in 2018 with one simple goal. We wanted to offer unbiased reviews and guides for people who love the beach. Since our inception, we have been fortunate to connect with many passionate beach goers, talented reviewers, and ocean lovers from all walks of life. These individuals have both inspired us and helped Seaside Planet to grow. In 2019 and beyond we are proud to share our mission and values with our readers:

  • To be a trusted resource where people can learn about the best beach and ocean sport gear.
  • To provide a one stop website for people to learn about the top tips and hacks for creating an enjoyable beach vacation.
  • To promote beach and ocean use in a way that is sustainable and eco-friendly so that these wonderful resources are available for generations to come.
  • To create and nurture a community of individuals willing to help each other enjoy their best beach lives because life is truly better at the beach!

Having grown up in Florida, you could say that the ocean and the beach life are in my blood. My current favorite ​beach sports are kayaking, surfing, skim boarding (a new personal favorite), and kite boarding. ​Though

​I'm just as happy lounging on a quiet beach and enjoying the tranquility that can only be found by the ocean. I hope you enjoy our guides and if you have any questions, please​ don't hesitate to reach out to us in the comments. We love to hear from our readers!
