    I like the color way! Really cute, reminds me of the beach version of PBT Islander! I love it. The Boat novelty is a bit lacking, imo... Maybe explore more novelties? How about the sun, umbrella, sunglasses, hats, things you encounter in the beach theme?

    You can drop the mod-colored R1 1u \| from the base kit. See here.

    Consider adding R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn for 65%/75% users.

    1.75u space shouldn't be included in the spacebars kit, since it's only used on a few (very few) 40% boards. You can probably drop the second 1u space too, since I don't think that's used anywhere outside of 40% either.

    Legend suggestions: Super instead of Win, Scroll instead of Scroll↲Lock, Num instead of Num↲Lock.

    You may want to drop the UK ISO keys and have basic 4-key ISO support (ISO Enter, 1.25u Shift, R3 \|, R4 <>) if the base kit size starts being a problem.

    Not a big fan of the prescription glasses on the mods.
    If they're supposed to be sunglasses, the lenses shouldn't be clear.

    While I like the theme, I'd personally prefer something more exotic, like palm trees, a tiki bar, a jetski, a water skier, parasailing, beach volleyball, or a mask & snorkel, or you could add a kite. Something like that.
    The parasol would look better at an angle imo, plus I'd add an accented blue key variant.

    Nice colorway, but ouch those are a lot of custom colors. You may want to consider using GMK stock if any of those fit your need, or else you'll face more expensive prices and a harder color matching process.

    Yeah, after a lot of revision, I found that the use of RAL and PANTONE were necessary to colour match the set the best it can be

    The rows listed for the 40s kit look off to me, what is the purpose of having 4 Esc keys in R1 profile when you already have the base kit Esc keys in R1?

    Super cool idea to have a trailer.

    However cuts are super fast and jittery. Timing feels off too. Let us get a proper look at the setups :P

    I feel like the colors are a bit saturated. The blue hits that turquoise water color just right but the sandy color would be a little bit better if it were washed out like a white sand beach. All in good taste though.
