RT’s ’15 Travels

The Winter of 2014-15 hasn’t been a typical one for Jetty Team Rider Randy Townsend. RT’s usual multi-month stay in Costa Rica was put on hold when extremely solid swell blessed the California coast to light up the start of 2015. Townsend is now heading to CR to meet up with Surfline’s January Photo of the Month Winner Trevor Murphy. Trev & RT definitely share that love of being the first ones on it! Additionally, Photog Jim Givas snapped some Jersey shots while Randal stopped home for a few sessions with the boys…boardies to bitterness, and back to boardies (for now)!

Reptar + Hop Sauce 2015 Bands

As we approach Spring, there’s a lot to look forward to! Take this week’s Music Monday artist, Reptar. A few weeks back they released a rad new song, Ice Black Sand, and have a new record called Lurid Glow dropping on March 31st. Check it out!

Also, our second annual Hop Sauce Festival is a short 13 weeks away! Last year was amazing, and so we’ve brought it back bigger and better with another great lineup led by headliner Jukebox The Ghost and supported by a bunch of other great artists you can check out on the festival’s site. Tickets are on sale now for the event taking place in Beach Haven, NJ on May 30th.

What Downtime?

Don’t get us wrong, we emulate the work hard, play hard mentality, but we also have a good laugh when people tag our Winter with downtime! The Surf Expo in Orlando, FL is always a major (and fun) part of the buildup toward Spring/Summer. This year our crew once again did their best DYOL impression by driving the Jetty box truck to Florida and back for the East Coast trade show that we simply cannot miss! Jetty Hall of Fam’r Matt Higgins captured our brand’s story in this edit, enjoy! Special shout out to Frank Ritacco for being our ace in the hole!

Canals by Oakley & Crotty

It’s not the flight that will get Jetty Team Rider Gabriel Canals, but the cold, as he’s heading to his second home in NY for a quick visit. Canals has been busy working in PR this Winter, but he’s found some time (and some tubes) to surf his favorite home breaks. Here’s a handful of photos compliments of Chad Oakley & Jim Crotty!
