Why We Love Ocean and Bay Life
Bay Daze is the feeling you get after spending the day on the water. Whether your a fisherman, sailor, pleasure cruiser, or beach goer, we all know what that feeling does to us. Here at Bay Daze we try to capture that essence in our clothing. We offer a variety of styles celebrating life on the bay. While we are based out of Virginia Beach, Va and the Chesapeake Bay, we know that there are bays, sounds, and inlets all over the world and we hope to reach everyone of those places.
So many people have asked us why we wanted to create a company that celebrated life on the water, whether by an ocean or a bay. We love the idea that science has proven what we have known all along, living by the water is healthy for body and soul.

Some of the key points in this article have been things we have known for years.
There is something soothing about the sound of ocean waves, the smell of salt water, and the feeling of warm sand beneath your toes.
The sound of waves can help you achieve a meditative state, which is proven to heal and strengthen your brain.
According to Richard Shuster, PsyD, clinical psychologist, blue has a profound calming effect on people. "Staring at the ocean actually changes our brain waves' frequency and puts us into a mild meditative state," says Shuster.
Smell the Ocean Mist - When you first step out on the sand and allow your lungs to be filled with salty misty air, your brain may be receiving instant benefits. The negative ions (oxygen ions with an extra electron attached, produced via water molecules) in the ocean air can actually help calm your brain.
Walking barefoot on the beach can trigger tingling warm sensations produced as a result of us "grounding" to earth.
