    The premiere – and most most intensely challenging – endurance sports event on the Planet is upon us. Indeed, Ironman World Championships in Kona are less than three days away. And at the Oakley Athlete Safe House in Keauhou Bay – a splendidly tucked away property consisting of several mini-houses, picturesque scenery and its own dock on the water – the ‘calm before the storm’ is literally the feeling floating around in the salty air. Former Ironman World Champion and current Oakley Triathlon Manager, Greg Welch, a maestro of sorts during the week of the revered competition every year, is busy showing extra care for the elite athletes walking in and out of the house in the days leading up to the race (on top of serving as “The Voice” of Ironman Kona for countless official functions and the live web and telecasts). Yes there are pep talks. Sure, there are pleasantries. But the most important part of each athlete’s visit to the Safe House is, of course, their gear selection.

    The South Bay is the ‘Mecca’ of Beach Volleyball. So it’s only fitting that Oakley Volleyball Stars claim one of the most storied contest titles in the area’s vibrant history. Casey Jennings – the husband of Oakley’s two-time Olympic Gold Medal Beach Volleyball Star Kerri Walsh-Jennings – and Brazilian partner Pedro Salgado smashed their way to the coveted Hermosa Beach Open Title in late September, topping Oakley’s Sean Rosenthal and Jake Gibb in the Final: 21-18, 21-17. Teaming up last minute for the tournament, the two O bombers put on a dazzling display of amped up volleyball in front of a raucous South Bay crowd. The victory is the first Hermosa Beach Open success for Casey since 2005.
