Rock Pillars: Superhero Edition

We truly cannot thank our Jetty Rock Foundation donors enough! Even with a slow, freezing start to 2015, certain individuals have made it a point give back to our community through our 501(C)3 nonprofit. These guys would never ask for a blog post, or even to be mentioned for that matter, but their willingness and dedication simply has to be recognized. We are so appreciative that our friends have helped the Jetty Rock Foundation live on beyond Sandy, where it originally drew a majority of its funding. Give these guys a high five when you see them, buy them a drink, and follow their amazing example of community leadership & charity! What surfer stereotype…

Equity Prime has donated $25 for every loan closed to our Foundation (and has the same deal with David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation). They donated $775 in January and $1125 in February! Steve & Melissa recently spent time in CA for some amazing swell!

This perennial Clam Jam participant and sponsor has hit the Jetty Rock with a $500 private donation each year…and he rips!

The Law Office of William WrightWilliam Wright
At this point we are hesitant to even ask this guy to sponsor our events…because he sponsors them all! From the Coquina & Clam Jam, to massive support for Hop Sauce, Bill is showing his daughter Noelle what giving back is all about. Bill & Jill even had friends and family bring donations to Baby No-No’s recent birthday party in lieu of gifts!

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!

Kids in Love Tour

The Mowgli’s might be the most feel-good group around these days! We’re stoked on their new single I’m Good, their upcoming tour dates & the fact that you can pre-order Kids in Love!

Regular Kids

Check out this well done Pulsar + Rolling Stone feature on The Gaslight Anthem! It’s always cool to hear directly from artists about their creative process, especially when they are rocking comfy Jetty flannels (Alex @ 2:26) while doing so!

JTY x The Scandals

We’re stoked to officially announce that The Scandals are joining our family of musicians! Jared, Sean, Paulie & Anthony embody our blue collar, work hard/play hard ethics, and we can’t wait to check them out on their upcoming tour with The Gaslight Anthem! Check out their new Jetty Band Page and show them some East Coast love!

Dreams & Reality

The dream of partnering with Equity Prime Mortgage to raise funds for our Jetty Rock Foundation & DDBCF has become a reality! As promised, EPM closed 31 loans in the month of January and has donated $25 per loan to both the JRF & David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation! We’re thrilled with this partnership, thankful that Volatile Media Management facilitated it, and hope that you remember which mortgage company is making a difference in their community the next time you need a home loan or refinance!
