Jared R. Platt

On Friday, January 22, 2016 we said goodbye to a tremendous human being. Jared R. Platt was a Jetty fanatic and one of our most positive brand ambassadors to date. He was an accomplished wrestler, always teaching, inspiring, laughing, and smiling ~ so infectious that we were more then obliged to have him don our wears wherever he was going. Even with Cancer cutting Jared’s life short at age 27, he was able to leave a lasting impression on thousands upon thousands of people. We will never forget his positive energy and will always be thankful for how he proactively spread the Jetty vibes. Rest in Peace brother, you will remain an everlasting inspiration to everyone who was lucky enough to cross paths with you.

Southern Entrepreneurs

Passing on our knowledge of small business, screen printing, and entrepreneurship has become one of our favorite things to do! Tuesday, January 26, 2016 was a watershed date for the first year of the Jetty x Southern Regional Entrepreneurship Program as students took a field trip to the Jetty HQ, learned about our Eco-friendly, water-based screen printing process, and had a hand in printing their first round of sample garments. We fielded a ton of questions and urged the students to take part in screen reclamation, registration, ink mixing, and the actual printing of their samples. We ended the session with pizzas and are happy to announce that our (4) entrepreneur group’s projects just got real! Stay tuned for plenty of marketing and sales initiatives from the groups: Ocean of Love, Fight for a Cure, David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation, and Southern Regional since 1957!

Surf Expo Review

As the Jetty box truck pulled into our HQ Tuesday morning at 2am, another Surf Expo was officially in the books! We were stoked on the reception of our Fall/Winter 2016 line which includes a new wave of flannels, oxfords, socks, flannel-lined pants, and plenty more. South Jersey collaborator David Macomber worked through a live painting at the booth while Cory, Janean, & John S. spent a lot of time on their feet showcasing our latest & greatest. The rest of our crew talked co-branding, Ink’d by Jetty services, and about all of the bigger & better things that Jetty will be bringing to you in the future! Check out a few good recaps by Transworld Business and Shop Eat Surf as well as some of our own photos of the good times in Orlando, FL!









Another Xmas in the Trenches

Jetty Brand Ambassador Trevor Ritland had a Christmas Eve that we would certainly call unique! We could rant on about his adventurous Holiday, but you might as well read his own detailed take on it!

Science Saturday

Jetty Team Rider Dave Werner will be instructing on bathymetry and coastal processes at Science Saturday (1/9/16)! Dave is an accomplished waterman who teaches at MATES Academy & Richard Stockton University, so spending $5 at the LBIF to hear him lecture about the things that he is so very passionate about will be well worth it!
