The Sunshine State is a boaters metropolis, attracting both local and international water lovers to its year round climate of sunny skies and warm weather.  Based in Boca Raton, Florida, BocaShade is a story based on real-life necessity, and was developed by company founder and chief product engineer, John Cao, to protect his family and friends during long, fun-filled days on the water in the harsh Florida sun. It wasn't long before local fishermen and fellow boating families began noticing BocaShade on Johns own boat, enquiries to purchase it followed, and here began the birth of BocaShade.
