Panetta & Hans hoist the Clam!

Panetta & Hans hoist the Clam!

The 13th Annual Jetty Clam Jam went down, for the first time, in the month of September!  Underdogs Tanner Panetta & Tab Hans took down Billy Webster & Tim Raimo in the finals, surfing through some really tough, changing conditions.  An 80-degree beach day saw a huge crowd and outweighed the less favorable conditions, but all agreed that the surf was plenty contestable.  The more important part of the day was the charitable element with our community support of surfer Pat Harrington who is battling through Chemo and fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Pat has surfed in nearly all of the Jams, but had to sit this one out...but he still attended and handed over the trophy!
