I miss my English umbrella with the wooden handle though (wasn't build for the kind of winds I encountered with it) so some day (if it ever stops raining for long enough) I'll go to a specialist store on the outskirts of town and get a German one... they make them out of carbon fibre composite these days
I can't remember who makes it, but there's one that's designed with an aerodynamic canopy to cope with high winds.
Ah, here were are, thanks to a quick search: http://www.senzumbrellas.com/
PS. the Snoop image is brilliant. I hear he's changed his name to Snoop Lion now. No, I'm not kidding.
