Salt Life Review

Salt Life Signature Decal

What is Salt Life, you may be asking?

Salt Life, as defined by the Urban Dictionary, is:

“Salt Life ~ Originally a sticker on the back of cars used to denote a surfer, bodyboarder, or general beach bum whose  life centered around the ocean or related beach going activities.”

Recently I reviewed apparel by Southern Fried Cotton, carried in the clothing department of the store I work for.  Since our store is located in a coastal community, we cater to ocean and beach related clothing, popular in our area.  Salt Life is another Southern and Coastal Company which manufactures the type of clothing we carry.


Origin of Salt Life

The Salt Life brand has come to represent the ocean and the many activities centered around it. It appeals to those who enjoy an active lifestyle surrounding surfing, fishing, diving and days spent on the beach.

Salt Life was begun in 2003 by four men who, besides being friends, were also passionate about the ocean and all it has to offer.  These four 'watermen' are from Jacksonville Beach, Florida and thus that is where their company is located. Salt Life is more than just a Logo ~ it represents a style of life that is ocean and beach related.

Explore the Salt Life in TeeShirts, Hats, Decals and Lots More...


Salt Life Marlin Tee Shirt
Cut Salt Marlin Life T-Shirt
Popular with fans of ocean fishing is the Salt Life Marlin Tee Shirts. They come in a variety of colors, and are found in different designs such as the Sun Tee (marlin leaping with sun behind it), Palm Tee (showing a palm tree on the beach and the marlin leaping in the ocean), and Marlin Waves (colorful design of a marlin leaping out of a large ocean wave). 

The Ocean Life tee shirt line represents all there is to love about the ocean ~ the surfing, swimming, fishing and fun beach life.

There are fishing theme T-shirts with the “Life in the Cast Lane” sayings and designs such as hook, line & sinker that fishermen love.  There are skull themes and anchor images, turtles and many others.

Especially for the ladies, there are scoop neck Tees with clever sayings that remind one of the  ocean and coast, such as “Sea La Vie”, “Seahorse Daze”, and “Living Salty Turtle”.

Salt Life also has a wide variety of hats for these seaside activities.  Live the Salt Life is one of their favorite mottos.  This 'Anchor' hat is a favorite for your beach-going activities.

Salt Life also carries clothing for kids, a line of shorts for men & women, and other beach gear such as beach towels, flags and coolers.

Everything that is a reminder of your favorite oceanside sport or beach activity.  Check them all out on the Salt Life website.


Salt Life Food Shack

In addition to their clothing and gear designs, Salt Life also has restaurants called 'Food Shacks'. Currently, these restaurants are located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, St. Augustine Beach, Florida and Fernandina Beach, Florida, with plans to open more. They are known for their eclectic seafood menu and are lively hangouts for the beach-going crowd.

Enjoy Local Fried Shrimp and Beer Can Chicken, salads and tacos and Fresh Rolled Sushi, fresh fish and salt water favorites.  Check the Jacksonville Beach menu here
for these and many other selections, all available in their casual yet trendy open-air space located near the beach. Their motto is “Pull up a stool. Eat. Drink. And be Salty.” 

Roatan Marine Park

The Salt Life Company 'gives back' in an effort to protect the oceans they love and preserve the seas and coral reefs for future generations. They have teamed with Roatan Marine Park to protect the waters and reefs in Roatan, Honduras. Check out the Roatan Marine Park website
to see how they are working to provide a sustainable marine environment that can provide fisheries and tourism without harming the ecosystem.

  1. What a great clothing company to celebrate living by the shore. I love the "salt life" and am still enjoying it here even though it is quite a bit cooler than I am used to, having lived near the shore in California and Texas previously.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Heather. The Salt Life is fun to live on any 'shore' in the world. :)

  2. Thanks for the review and making me aware of the "Salt Life" line. I always envy you living so close to the ocean. What a great life!

    1. I envy YOU being able to watch the St. Louis Cardinals play baseball every day, Mary Beth... LOL. But coastal life IS appealing. :) Thanks for visiting my review.

  3. Life in the cast lane... love it! I do miss my salty life on Padre Island. I can see why this would be a popular line of beachwear.

    1. Delighted you picked up on that line (Life in the Cast Lane), Diana. Love 'play on words' that add appeal to something. The salty life is fun and this line of beachwear is very popular.

  4. What a really cool apparel and product line! I love that swordfish t-shirt. Pretty cool indeed! I do love visiting the beach and the Salt Life apparel would make great souvenirs.

    1. I like their crab design the best, Mouse. In the line of T-shirts we currently carry is one in a Georgia Peach color with the crab design. Really delightful. I think I will have to buy one for myself.

  5. Such a fun post. Having moved to Maryland, I began to learn about Salt Life. Not so much about surfers and similar, but of crab feasts and fisherman. That Sea Le Vie shirt is fun!

    1. Delightful, Dawn Rae. I agree - there is much Salt Life to enjoy living along the coast. Crab feasts - that would be the wonderful Maryland Blue Crab I'll bet. Love to go to one.

  6. What a fun collection. We have a beach lover in our family, and she'd look great in a Salt Life Tee for sure. The fact that they give back to help protect the oceans and the seas is wonderful and also a very appealing aspect to their products.

    1. I agree, Barbara. It's so nice when companies give back environmentally these days.
