I'm Donald Saltiban Sr., creator and founder of Salti Gear Hawaii. I was born and raised on Maui, then I relocated to the Big Island where I currently reside with my wife and seven children. Being born and raised in Hawaii, I was always around the ocean enjoying ocean activities like fishing, surfing, paddling, my list goes on.
Coming from a broken home and knowing what it's like to live on the streets, it has always been a dream of mine to be in business for myself. Through my faith as well as my hard work and determination, Salti Gear was created and my dream became a reality.
Salti Gear is all about my passion for Hawaii and it's many ocean activities combined with my passion for my faith and the hope and positivity that it brought into my life. My goal is that my products bring hope and a positive outlook into the market.
Salti Gear not only represents part of my last name, it represents a scripture from the Bible that says, "You are the salt of the earth, you are the light of the world; it gives light to all, let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven."
It is my dream to let my light shine by creating Hawaii based active gear to help Hawaii locals and visitors enjoy a wide variety of activities in Hawaii. Salti Gear's mission is to reach our customer's needs both in and out of the ocean. My inspiration is to help to be a light while outfitting people with positive ocean gear for all to enjoy.
