LIFE BEGINS AT SALTIE

Here at Saltie Sports our mission has and will always be to encourage as many people as possible to make those unique memories that last a lifetime. We believe the moments that mean the most are the times in between the bigger moments. The flicker of the sunlight as the paddle grazes the water, the quick smile of pride nearly missed as your child manages to stand on their SUP for the first time without any help. That first light in the morning bouncing off the glimmering water before, it feels like, anybody else in the world is awake and finally those evenings when the whole family can’t keep their eyes open past 7 pm because of how exhilarating the day has been. Those are the moments that we live for here at Saltie. Those are the moments our products were designed for.

Each of our lives is so busy nowadays that sometimes we need a reminder to take a step back and enjoy the little moments that one day will turn into incredible memories that last a lifetime. Life is made of these unique, small, moments that only being outside enjoying the fresh air and being in nature can conjure. As adults we hold these childhood memories so close to us, the days spent lazing on the beach, building a sand castle or splashing in the water, by the river being taken on our parent’s SUP or UK holidays heading to the coast with the whole family for a weekend of undivided attention exploring unknown places.

Based in Dorset, Saltie Sports’ aim is to provide high-quality watersports products for you to create your own memories that last a lifetime, whether that be as a family, in a couple, with a group of friends or simply those blissful moments spent enjoying quality time by yourself.

OUR STORY SO FAR

The time came in 2020 when Chris was at a crossroads in his life, it was time to start a new, exciting adventure. So, he sat down and thought about some of his best memories. It was soon obvious to him that these best memories were the school holidays spent at Watergate bay in Cornwall. Where the days were filled with adventures out on the water or playing in the sand. Chris realised he was now not only reliving these great memories as a dad but he was now in charge of making new ones for himself and creating those first memories for his children that they would cherish for a lifetime.

Chris wanted to create a brand that helped individuals, couples and families start creating memories that would last a lifetime out on the water. Those memories needed to be ones that stayed with people for a lifetime and if these memories were created using a Saltie product, then these products needed to be of high quality so that they not only made people’s adventures, explorations and memories that much better but they could even last for as long as the memory!

OUR STORY SO FAR

Saltie Sports was founded in 2020 by Chris Elms.

Having exited other businesses that year Chris took time out to plan the next venture. He started the process by recalling his best memories and it was soon obvious to him that these best memories were the ones he spent on or in the water, or school holidays down on the beach at Watergate bay in Cornwall. Chris realised he was now not only reliving these great memories as a dad but he was now in charge of making new ones for himself and creating those first memories for his children.

It was soon decided that a new brand by the name of Saltie was the vision. Chris wanted to create a brand that helped individuals, couples and families start living their best memories. Those memories needed to be ones that stayed with people a lifetime and if these memories were created using a Saltie product, then these products needed to be of high quality so that they not only made peoples adventures, explorations and memories that much better but they could even last for as long as the memory!
