Need a good strong windbreak for Norfolk beach. Not too heavy. Am I asking for the holy grail?

Have had glorious day on the beach today with our sports umbrella (has side flaps to act as windbreak)
But it wasn't big or strong enough for the strong wind!
Anyone fancy sharing their favourites?

The lee of something like this at this time of year!

Otherwise, people like these as they have steel tips so can be hammered well in -but in a good Norfolk wind I would also attach a couple of guy lines round the top and peg them well in too.
And hammer it in leaning into the wind, and then dig a wall of extra sand and massive flints against the poles.

We actually use a 'petrol station' windbreak - the hammering and shoring up is more important than what windbreak.

Thanks Blu.
The one you linked to looks quite heavy. Is it?

I don't know.
Doesn't look as heavy as some of the very expensive canvas ones.
But heavier than standard beach shop / petrol station, maybe?

These tension bars fit a standard windbreak and are sold at a lot of camping/caravan nine shows.
