Beach season is almost upon us (unless you live somewhere like California or Florida, in which case it’s probably a year-round thing). Nobody wants to go cold turkey with their technology -- even while out on the beach -- so it’s time for a roundup of gadgets that will make the sun, sand and surf even more enjoyable.

The Coolest Cooler was set to be the best gadget ever for beachgoers when it raised $13 million on Kickstarter. A cooler with wide, sand-friendly tires, built-in blender, a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, USB charger, an LED and its own bottle opener?

Sounded great, but unfortunately it imploded in a spectacular fashion and has turned into a Kickstarter cautionary tale.

Many of those ideas were solid -- you definitely want things like a cooler and a Bluetooth speaker for the beach -- but trying to jam them all into a single uber gadget is not the best approach.

Click ahead for 10 gadgets that are guaranteed to improve your summer beach experience.
