Help fishermen protect what’s important
to them: their skin, their gear, and the ocean.

We fish. We boat.
We spend long
hours in the sun
and on the water.

One day, after coming in from a fishing trip, we realized that  way too much time was spent scrubbing yellow and copper-ish stains off the gel coat of the boat. After much research we realized those stains were coming from a chemical compound found in most sunscreens.

We decided that no chemical-based sunscreen would be allowed on board. That left very few options, not to mention the sunscreens that we did manage to find, failed us in other ways. They were either too greasy and left a film on our hand, or were pasty and failed rub into the skin. We decided to come up with a formula that would be perfect for fishermen and boaters, began asking the fishing community in Jupiter, FL what they looked for in a sunscreen – and came up with a product that actually did what anglers needed it to do.

Sportsman Shield was
born out of necessity.
