Mike Canavan the creator of The Salty Surfer envisioned him after reading several inspiring books by the late author Leo Tolstoy, which helped guide the creation of The Salty Surfer.

"Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, ALL else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here." Leo Tolstoy

Living salty is not a thing, its a way. SALT represents an essential element of life, being one of the elements the human body cannot live without.

"I created a character that would symbolize someone who is simple and humble. Someone who LOVES ALL life, the planet, hard work and things made or done with a loving kind heart. Someone who never takes sides however will always pick the side of love. It's our only chance of survival. Someone you can relate to with similar struggles, however with tremendous faith in our planet. Someone who truly understands that we ALL serve a purpose and we exist as ONE."

The Salty Surfer was born. He's on an adventure surfing the world to spread this simple but direct global message, 'live salty or die'. It's about learning how to love, be loved and work together as ONE to build the GOOD LOVE. Because really, what else is there? ALL else is folly. It truly is the one thing we are interested in here."


UBUNTU in the Xhosa culture means I AM because WE are."The happiness of men consists in life. And life is in labor." Leo Tolstoy

"With loving guidance, knowledge and an incredible fashion sense my wife Laurie created a way to spread The Salty Surfer's message through the use of fashion."

"I want to promote his character on any sustainable well made materials and from there evolve it into a global lifestyle brand. I want to bring an urban bohemian look and feel from cultures all over the world that's both different and stylish. To the best of our knowledge we know they are made from people working together, a caring love for this planet and one another. The Salty Surfer brand can go on anything made using those guidelines." Laurie Canavan

As the great Charlie Chaplin said "YOU the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure!"

Please help The Salty Surfer build the GOOD LOVE and join our tribe!
