A little sun warms body and soul. Too much, at the wrong time, turns a coastal or water-borne outing into a sizzle-fest. Active Junky reached out to the seasoned sun-goers at ROW Adventures to get the insider scoop on outside endeavors.
While present in a lot of scenarios, locations – such as Baja – where sand and water are present mean greater concern; each reflects a high percentage of UV rays.

Too much sun can move from eyestrain and blurry vision to permanent damage, Active Junky friends.
Making a poor decision or being surprised by extreme conditions doesn’t mean the trip is over.
This is crucial as self-monitoring is difficult because most danger areas are out of the line of vision. A buddy watches to see if you’re getting red, reminds you to reapply sunscreen every few hours, and helps apply it to hard to reach areas such as your back.
