After a Nor'easter blew through the coast, the 12th Annual Jetty Clam Jam finally went down on Sunday, October 28th!  The Jam was held at 68th Street in Brant Beach for the first time and naysayers were put to shame by 4-6ft+ hollow waves that pumped from dawn to dusk.  An epic final pitted Steve Carpitella & Josh Law against Jamie Whitesell & Jetty Ambassador Pete Machotka.  J-law instantly scratched through a front side barrel and landed a monstrous floater to open up the heat.  Machotka countered with a big back side barrel, but it was too little, too late as Carpitella's consistently powerful turns outdid Whitesell's efforts.  Jamie was the only one who had any finals experience as he was runner up in 2015.  We couldn't have asked for a better day and are grateful for all of the participation and volunteerism!  Here are the final results and updated bracket!
