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...

Oyster Recycling Program PSA: Part I

We're proud of all the charitable initiatives powered by Jetty, but the Oyster Recycling Program has us really excited!  The idea spawned from our support and sponsorship of The Oyster Farmers film.  In 2017, our Jetty Rock Foundation partnered with Long Beach Township, Stockton University, Parsons Mariculture, and several local restaurants on a grassroots initiative to put oysters back into the Barnegat Bay.  This pilot program quickly grew into a larger awareness campaign and we'd love for you to have a hand in it!  Check out Part I of our Oyster Recycling Program PSA and learn more at FollowTheShell.com.
