Our Story:

After moving to Hawaii, I began racing sailboats regularly to meet people and make friends. My mother had skin cancer early in my life and then again 10 years later, so I was concerned about all the sun I was getting while on board and also during my new found love of all things outdoors. I set out to find a hat for sun protection but had a difficult time finding anything that really spoke to the nature of all my new hobbies. So, I decided to make my own hat instead. I actually had to order 12 at the place I found, so it was 1 for me and 11 to pawn off on friends. I never thought I would get rid of them all. But, in about a week, I had sold all 11 and realized this phrase might have some teeth. Since then, we’ve been adding new designs as inspiration occurs and steadily growing our retail partners.

Why we’ve continued to grow:

Playing, exploring, sweating; many are rediscovering these primal joys as humans and re-prioritizing their lives around them.  Scrolling through our instagram, its hard to ignore these captured moments are likely the high points of the day or maybe even the week for those photographed.  We are truly blessed to be a brand that is worn and enjoyed when people are fully engaged and living in the moment.

These days, it’s rare that I talk to someone and they don’t mention the hope for future adventures that are on their bucket list. I find there is a common thread among us that is drawn to exploration. My hope is that Get Salty encourages others to follow their bliss and that our brand can be a small part of the journey to finding what it is to live an authentic life.
