so I went to the beach this week. Is this the proper way to take care of my ukulele while at the beach?

i think I was thinking that a uke is an instrument that we can take virtually anywhere. They aren't babies. I spent an hour in the surf with that uke yesterday and never once did I come close to dropping it. I had a blast playing in the surf with my uke.

Moral of story: Guys and Gals, just play the uke. Don't b e afraid to play it...you never know what you might miss.

Right on bro, just don't do it with your Collings or vintage Martin (;-).

Eller -- you are a nut. (in a good way) Not gonna do that with my MB, though. Maybe my Flamingo.

Hilarious! What a great picture! And that's what it's all about-- making memories. :)

Crazy man! Notice its not the Sceptre, "crown bridge" Super Concert OR (God forbid), Nora's longneck soprano you are waving about! Should have been a Sailor Uke, though.

Enjoy John, I'll do that myself if I make it near a beach this summer sometime.

Looks like a great save after you fell off your board.

I'd just want to be sure I got all the "salt" residue off of it with a slightly dampened cleaning cloth, especially if there are any wound strings on it, and geared tuners. I live 1/2 mile from the ocean and get plenty of salt spray on my cars when breeze out of the East. Looks like you had a blast!

nah. I was probably not the smartest by taking it out but one can have fun with their uke outside the norm:)
