Labin & Weber hoist the Clam!

The 14th Annual Clam Jam went down this past Saturday with Chuck Labin & Royce Weber defeating Randy Townsend & Connor Devaney in the finals.  After (6) weeks of postponement, weekend waves finally graced the Brant Beach section of Long Beach Township from Hurricane Epsilon.  It was another great day on the beach with our LBI Region surf community.  We're looking forward to improving our logistics for #15 next year!  In the meantime, check out our Press Release, the final bracket results and some photos courtesy of Jim Givas Photography.     Read More...

It's on! Clam Jam a go for 10/24/20!

Finally, we have some swell on a weekend, so our 14th Annual Clam Jam will run this Saturday, October 24th!  We may be dealing with some walled out waves, but the size and weather should make for an epic day at 68th Street in Brant Beach.  Surfers should report to the beach no later then 7am.  Food will be provided by the Tide Table Group and the K2 bar will be open.  Let's have a day for the LBI Region surf community! On the Stage: 11am-1pm The Fourth Son / 1pm-3pm The Danksters Photos of the 13th Annual (2019) Jetty... Read More...

No Clam Jam Streak at 6...

We're not running out of time, this is just the way that the wait for Clam Jam-worthy surf on a weekend goes!  The Jam will not take place on 10/17 or 10/18 this weekend.  We still have a couple of weekends left in OCT, but note that if it does not go down this month, then we can exercise the option to have it on any day of the week (in November)...

Waves of the Future

Above: Photo courtesy of Ryan Mack It's pretty exciting to have a state of the art wave pool right here in our home state of New Jersey.  Jetty Ambassador Randy Townsend recently cashed in a ticket via Skudin Surf @ American Dream as a crew of East Coast all stars hit the pool.  We'd say that the Perect Swell technology made for a pretty damn good Saturday night in East Rutherford!

A 5th Postponement for the Jam

The 14th Annual Jetty Clam Jam will not run this weekend on 10/10 or 10/11.  We still have 3 weekends left in October (6 potential days), so we're hopeful that the waves and weather will cooperate!  In the meantime, enjoy your Holiday weekend!

4X not a charm for CJ

Four potential weekends to hold our 14th Annual Clam Jam, and four without contestable conditions.  We will continue to stay on hold this weekend as the event will not run on 10/3 or 10/4.  At least we've had plenty of practice during the week!

Teddy was a Bear...

3 Weekends, 3 Delays for Clam Jam

Well, Teddy provided for us, but it was during the week, so we'll continue to wait to host the 14th Annual Jetty Clam Jam.  This marks the 3rd postponement in as many weeks, but we'll patiently proceed and project for the next potential weekend of October 3rd/4th.  Bye September!

Clam Jam Delayed Again...

We're postponing the 14th Annual Jetty Clam Jam once again this weekend - it will not run on September 19th or 20th.  We hope you all scored some waves this past week, we were definitely out of the office quite a bit!  We will continue tracking the tropics while remembering that we love the waves that these storms produce, but they can also wreck homes, entire regions and lives.

Mia Takes Two!

Congrats to Jetty Ambassador Mia Gallagher who took home two NSSA East Coast Regional Titles!  Mia reached (4) finals and won both the Open Women's and Explorer Girls.  She now joins Jetty Ambassador Jamie DeWitt as an East Coast Champion! Read More...

Clam Jam Postponed

We have the longest window in the history of the Clam Jam this year and were already faced with a very tough call for this weekend - the Jam is postponed and will not run on Saturday 9/12 or Sunday 9/13.  There will be some energy out there this weekend, so go grab some waves!  We're banking on better conditions with more favorable winds, hopefully in September, as storms line up to march our way.

The Picks Are In!

The bracket has been solidified for the 14th Annual Jetty Clam Jam!  Solidified, but not finalized as we all know that there will be some alternate surfers to swap in when conflicts arise.  If you missed registration and are interested in being an alternate, then please send us an email (Anna@jettylife.com).  We're pumped to start watching the swell forecasts - please stay tuned into this Blog, our social media channels and the Clam Jam Website for the call as each weekend approaches!   Read More...

Welcome Mia Gallagher

Photo & video by Tony Coon Films // Words by Jon Coen Since day one, Jetty has been based on people. And nothing excites us more than seeing the family grow.  We are thrilled to welcome Ocean City, New Jersey’s Mia Gallagher as our newest Jetty Ambassador. We met Mia through the our Coquina Jam. Each of the last several years, she has made the trip up to LBI and brought beachgoers to their feet with her stylish waveriding.  She has won the last two Coquina Jams, in 2019 with Jetty friend and IMSY Swimwear collaborator Katie Imswiler, and in 2020...

Boon Island Bucket List

Jetty Ambassador Chris Carragher and friends recently checked off a big bucket list paddle to Boon Island.  It took two hours to get out to the lighthouse, and judging by the amount of seals, the crew was pretty surprised to not see any sharks!  We were stoked to outfit these guys in gear for their quest!  These guys also just raised $6,200 for their local SPCA via their Paddle for the Pups event!

14th Annual Clam Jam

Our 14th Annual Clam Jam is set for Saturday, September 12th should the waves and weather cooperate!  This year will be a little different considering that we don't have the usual Fall conflicts with other events.  That means that any Saturday or Sunday after Labor Day is game on when we see "good" conditions.  If you're a past competitor, then you can register here.  We'll be selecting the random teams at our Back-to-School event on Thursday, September 3rd at Jetty HQ.  We're looking forward to another safe, fun surf event where the rules will stay in place from our recent...

Coquina Jam raises $88,000!

Photos courtesy of Soult Studios Our 12th Annual Coquina Jam will always be remembered given the pandemic, but it has also set a new fundraising total of $88,000!  Our Jetty Rock Foundation (JRF) + David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation (DDBCF) will split those profits and immediately turn them into donations to Cancer patients in need.  We're elated to more then double the amount raised in 2019 with a huge shout out to the (64) surfers and our sponsors.  The beach crowd was courteous and respected the heightened rules, the waves were great, the weather was warm and the positive vibes...

Coquina Jam ON for Sunday 8/2

12th Annual Coquina Jam

It's on!  With some hardcore rules in place we are set to run a safe 12th Annual Jetty Coquina Jam!  We have big goals for David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation and our Jetty Rock Foundation who will be splitting the pot this year, but equally donating all profits back to LBI Region Cancer patients in need!  Registration is open for the first (64) female surfers and sponsorships are available.  Please pay special attention to the rules and help us run a safe, organized event that is so close to our hearts and community!

The Lucky Hat

A couple of our staff escaped to Northern VT last weekend to test the bite.  The storied Cranchor Strapback struck again and put Jerm on the board with a few different types of fish, but Jay nailed the best catch on the last night, just before dark, with a nice Bass!  The #LakeLife was a nice change of pace...time to plan another trip!   Read More...
