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...

Last Thursday we hosted our 2nd Craft & Calling event at Jetty HQ, this time focusing on the females of our Coquina Jam!  Jetty Hall of Fam'r Jon Coen interviewed four former/current surfers who have all participated in our event over the years, and they represented four distinct generations.  Their words were inspiring and we'll be dropping the video down the road (also featuring the performance of Calista Quinn).  We randomly selected this year's teams for the bracket of 64 chicas too (see below)!  Thank you to all of the sponsors, surfers and guests who made it such an intimate evening!...
