    It’s been a busy year for Danny Hampson. Heaps of traveling, tons of riding and filming, and a huge personal achievement: buying his first home. (Due to all the travel, he hasn’t been home to work on the place since he bought it in April.) All the long hours and hard work has paid off. The Floridian has had some big wins (Wake Games and Nationals) and he’s put together a new edit that has the entire industry talking (“Graceland”). Since he was passing through California, we took the opportunity to sit down and get some insight on everything that’s been going on in Hampson’s life.

    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.
