Big Picture: Oakley Ends The Season Salty

"I read a quote the other day that some obviously deep and poetic girl had found on the Internet and put on instagram that read, “The cure for anything is salt water,; sweat, tears, or the ocean.” Of course I immediately double tapped my phone sending a like and sat back to consider the meaning of this prophetic post. While I can’t vouch for the first two salty things helping with anything I can say that the ocean does have some type of calming effect. I then realized that my instagram friend had perfectly summed up what the Oakley teams trip to the keys was all about; after a summer of sweating it out in contests, demos, and photo shoots, crying through losses, hangovers, and loneliness, George Daniels, Jack Blodgett, Ryan Wolfe and I were heading to the Islamorada in the Florida Keys to bathe in the ocean and cure ourselves of the grime the summer circuit can leave on ones soul. We were going to end the season salty." Danny Hampson
