Above: Preparing for the first heat by Shawn Casey
This was a funky year with a long wait during the Clam Jam window, but it finally went down on Sunday, November 19th! A nearly full bracket of (93) LBI Region surfers competed all day in surf that ranged from 2-6 ft with strong offshore winds. At the end of the day, Randy Townsend & Evan Zodl defeated Billy Webster & Conor Willem in a very close final. Some of the best surfers rose to the top in challenging conditions while newcomers enjoyed their first time Jam experiences. Check out the Press Release below for further details, photos courtesy of Jim Givas and Shawn Casey, and we'll see you all at the 12th Annual in 2018!
Special thanks to those who volunteer the entire day and make the event such a great one: Bill Machotka, Randy Budd, Jon Coen, Lisa Braunwell, Joe Mangino and many others who lent a hand!
