Back Bay Gaiters

Today you hear a lot about Influencers, but Dave Werner was a Team Rider well before social media, and has always been one of our top Ambassadors!  On a recent trip to the Caribbean, far off the beaten path, Werner's name came up and he was the connection ~ this was 1,600+ miles away from where he helped spread the Jetty vibes in the early 2000's.  Today, Dave is still a man of the water and communicating our brand through his coastal activity.  In this case, he's rocking our neck gaiter and slaying slobs in the back bay.  Cheers to making...

JTY x Toadfish is here!

We're stoked that our collab with Toadfish Outfitters is finally here!  This was a very natural fit between two East Coast-based brands that put conservation and sustainability first.  Our collection centers around the shuckin' awesome knife and is rounded out with a few custom pieces of apparel ~ check it out while supplies last!

Party with a Purpose

We certainly Party with a Purpose, and our last major event of the year, the LBT Oyster Shellabration was no exception!  The 2nd annual event featured 9 of the LBI Region's oyster farmers who shucked the day away, but also focused on educating the public.  The event benefits the Oyster Recycling Program, the first municipal-run initiative of its kind in New Jersey.  We're excited to elevate our contribution to coastal waters as we usher in 2020, and thanks to you we have considerable funds to keep the needle moving!   Read More...

Jr. Mates Reef Project

We are stoked to support a new project in our coastal waters, the BHCFA Jr. Mates Reef Project.  It turns out that a couple of artificial reefs in Southern Jersey haven't been shown any love since 2005.  With some young anglers leading the charge, this initiative aims to enhance the structures giving fish better shelter and feeding opportunities.  The Sea Shell Striped Bass Derby running this weekend will be donating to this cause and we've pledged $5,000 via our Jetty Rock Foundation!

R&R

In this case, R&R can have several meanings as Ambassador Ben Raimo recently visited his rock (family) on the North Shore.  The celebration of a new baby girl also resulted in some Rocky Rights for Ben!  SoCal can go through lulls too, so we are sure that this trip was refreshing!   Read More...

Deep Beneath the Block

Check out a flashback to our trip to Rhode Island which has become a definite block on the calendar year after year!  From some deep dives and spear fishing, to the spoils and Jetty Sessions above, we're always stoked to toast after a day on the water.  Get layered up for your travels with plenty of choices from our fresh Fall Men's & Women's collections!

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... Read More...

Clam Jam is ON for September 21, 2019!

Who will hoist the clam this year?!  We'll find out by dark tomorrow as the 2019 13th Annual Jetty Clam Jam is ON!  A fading Humberto swell and an 80 degree beach day are looking to make 68th Street in Brant Beach pretty special tomorrow!  Surfers, please check in no later then 7am as the first heat of a long, 9-hour day will be in the water by 8am.  We're looking forward to seeing the LBI Region surf community out in full force tomorrow ~ see you there!   Read More...

Logan Hayes 2nd @ Belmar PRO

Congrats to Jetty Ambassador Logan Hayes who surfed his way to a 2nd place finish at the Belmar PRO last weekend!  Logan has made it a tradition to travel North from Florida for the Fall contest season, and the waves rarely disappoint!  We now move on through our own contest window with the 13th Annual Jetty Clam Jam paying close attention to Hurricane Humberto's movement for a potential go the weekend of September 21-22...stay tuned!

Looking Ahead of Dorian

Above: Jetty Captain Randy Townsend by Dan Przygocki We saw so many tubes from Dorian in what some are calling the best hurricane-based swell Long Beach Island (NJ) has seen in 10 years, but at what cost?  Amongst the rampant stoke from last Saturday, we're being asked by our fans what they can do to support the Bahamas.  We have a great list of current charitable initiatives (below), so if you are interested in helping our fellow Bahamians recover, then we are suggesting the following two avenues for donations.  Both W4W and Team Rubicon are trusted nonprofits with boots on...

13th Annual Clam Jam

Wow, we can't believe that we've been running our annual Clam Jam surf contest for 13 years now!  This year, we're opening up another September weekend (2 total) with 4 potential early Fall days to run the event.  We're also dedicating this one to our main man Pat Harrington who is battling through Hodgkin's Lymphoma and some nasty chemo treatments that are going to keep him out of the water for a while.  Registration is now open, and we're seeking sponsorships as well.  Check out all of the details at JettyClamJam.com! The first (96) surfers to register will have their... Read More...

Coquina Jam raises $35K+

Last Sunday produced waist-to-chest high waves and an unbelievable atmosphere for our 11th Annual Jetty Coquina Jam sponsored by Hackensack Meridian Health - Southern Ocean Medical Center.  A record amount of people attended what some are calling Long Beach Island's largest surf contest ever.  Katie Imswiler & Mia Gallagher edged out Mary Tantillo & Brynn Gallagher in a final heat that featured a Jetty collaborator (IMSY), local business owner (Swell Colors) and sisters going head-to-head!  The most impressive part though, is that we raised over $35,000 which is already flowing over to David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation.  They will...

Mental-wais

Jetty Captain Randy Townsend recently returned from another epic trip to the Mentawais.  RT has been to the depths of Indo many times, most recently sharing his knowledge and a 115ft schooner with some old friends (and a few first-timers).  We're sure there will be plenty of ridiculous content to follow, welcome home boys!

We preach that you should all Draw Your Own Line, so of course we need to practice that as well!  Check out Marketing Manager Joe Hodnicki snagging the Caddis hatch on Tulpehocken Creek as well as CMO Cory Higgins finding fish (in his Ahi L/S Hooded Solar) during downtime on the DYOL Back to our Roots tour down South!  Our code and culture call for all to enjoy their passions as long as their work gets accomplished...get it done and get outside (not necessarily in that order)!   Read More...

It Takes Two...

Blaine Walck & Brett Henninger have been crushing us with premium content lately!  As Jetty Ambassadors, they've really connected on a level that produces so much stoke.  They both linked up with Jetty CMO Cory Higgins down in Florida, printed some tees on the DYOL Back to our Roots tour and are heading out for a dive right now!    Read More...

Cast Your Own Line

Jetty Ambassador John Streit recently moved to a new part of town, and one that has a ton of ponds, canals, lakes and creeks!  Although the Virginia Beach region is better known for its world class saltwater fishing, there is ample opportunity to cast your own line off any freshwater bank.  Here's a few of his recent catches which shows the diversity of species (Crappie, Chain Pickerel and Bass)...

Marching into Spring

Above: Ambassador Dave Werner by Matt Reitinger  This Winter certainly wasn't a Top 10-type of season in the Northeast, but on the bright side Spring is here!  New Jersey isn't quite known for swells this time of year, but at least we can spend more time outside and enjoy some more sunlight.  And hey, you never know when an epic session is upon us.  Here's a quick look back at a couple of days in March that didn't disappoint!
