Danny at the Maldives

Danny at the Maldives

One Ocean International strongly believes in sharing stories of amazing people doing amazing things to inspire others, and Salt Gypsy's Danielle Clayton is one of these amazing people.

I was first introduced to Danny by a mutual friend of ours; surfer, artist and legend Jess Letmanis , and i was soon to find out what an amazing waterwoman Danny is!

Here is sneak peak into Danny's creation...



Salt Gypsy was born from a desire to showcase and promote independent surfwear design, handmade and earth-friendly lifestyle products for discerning waterwomen. We have a passion for sourcing independent and emerging designers, with emphasis placed on product created by other chicks who rip. Salt Gypsy also champions the everyday female surfer and works to promote a higher calibre of surfing ability. 

Salt Gypsy creator Danny Clayton was once told by her family`s cardiologist, “Don`t ever surf again.” Not letting a congenital heart arrythmia (Long QT Syndrome) and the fear of sudden death get in the way of living, her path has been an eclectic mix of dreams lived: from studying Sculpture at university to teaching English in Japan, working for international surf company, Billabong (NZ), to surf guiding in the Maldives. Now recently relocated to a sweet wee pad in Bali, she lives and breathes a surf lifestyle, loves the fact that Canggu Deli stocks NZ`s own Whittakers Chocolate, and more recently found herself the new owner of a toe-biting ginger kitten called Squeak.
