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)...

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!

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.

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...

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

Coquina Jam Postponed to 8/2

We've had a great run of rideable surf, but unfortunately the Atlantic will not cooperate for our 12th Annual Jetty Coquina Jam this weekend.  We have rescheduled the Jam to next Sunday, August 2nd.  Here are a few things to note... We made this decision with respect to our (64) female surfers who deserve the right to showcase their talents! The surfers have already raised in excess of $21,000!  The individual fundraising will continue here on their individual pages - please support their efforts!  Big thanks to our matching sponsors who will add another $10,000 to the surfer's efforts -...

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...

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...
