ShapeShifter Fish and Friends – Locally Owned UPF Sun Protection

Published on 11/13/23: Locally owned ShapeShifter Fish and Friends! I’m serious when I say my son receives compliments EVERY TIME he wears his ShapeShifter UPF shirts. They’ve passed his 18 months of stress testing, traveled through 6 countries and still look great…crazy. I mentioned them in my recent Fort De Soto Pier post, but they deserve more. (discount code below!)

Locals Maria Aller and Andrew Hill have hit it out of the park with their line of sun protection/outdoor gear! They have sizes for adults, children, and toddlers – UPF sun shirts, hoodies, indestructible sunglasses, and more. My son WANTS to wear his ShapeShifters. “They’re cool dad!”

Their Mission

The Shapeshifter mission is certainly aligned with LovingStPete. “We want to encourage a love for the outdoors, the same way we had growing up. Life for kids is so different now. There are so many distractions, so many electronics for mindless play, and so many reasons not to go outside.”
“We remember playing outdoors from the time we got home from school, until the sun went down… and we learned a LOT, but the biggest thing we learned was how to MAKE FRIENDS. Friendship is the foundation of a healthy childhood, successful partnerships, and thriving communities. And kids today NEED encouragement to do this. But what is also different now is all of the data we didn’t have back then on the importance of sun protection. And we know how hard it is to get kids to wear sunblock, so we created a line of sun protection KIDS WANT TO WEAR. Our mission is to create something that supports less screen time for more play time, reiterates how important being outside and getting Vitamin D is (but safely), and to create an environment that encourages friendship.”

All About Outdoor Activities

Love that mindset. Long time followers know I’m terrible at indoor activities. I go silent and stare at the crayons. Having grown up in the middle of a large avocado farm (dad still farms it at 88), I’m much better when I’m out and about with Colt than sitting down. Thank you, Maria and Andrew, for creating a brand that helps lead us outdoors!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
