Childhood Dreams

Jetty Ambassador Ben Raimo doesn't get to spend much time with his friends from Jersey nowadays.  In celebrating Jetty Captain Randy Townsend's 40th on a recent trip to Indo, Ben had the chance to surf and hang with some hometown boys.  It wasn't all glorious though, as Raimo readily admitted taking some beatings.  In his words, you gotta pay to play, but sharing waves with lifelong friend Danny Mears turned those posters on their bedroom walls into reality.  Pretty pictures and tubes coming at a costly price, but all worth it...

Santi presents NJ TRNST

Straight from the Shed

The Fortney family is currently putting their hand-shaped Shed Surfboards to use in the Caribbean.  What's better then escaping the cold in some Jetty boardies except for doing so on a board that you shaped yourself?!  It's always good to see Cooper & Keaton going bowl for bowl!

New Horizons

Jetty Ambassador  Gaby Canals' water time might be just a little bit more limited now that he has to play Dad.  Good thing he doesn't need as much practice as the rest of us!  Check out a few recent photos from a session courtesy of Jowey Lu...    Read More...

Welcome Tyler Garfield!

You can see the stoke emulating from Tyler Garfield, right?  With home bases in the South Bay as well as Bend (OR) he loves having the best of both worlds.  He's also found clever ways to give back, for example, by putting his Sociology degree to use giving surf lessons to war vets, abused children and people with other illnesses!  We're looking forward to following him and his travel bug, and we're sure he'll hook up for a surf with fellow Ambassador Chris Mansor who happens to be right down the road in Huntington!

Miles in the Sky

Spending way too many miles in the sky crammed into those little seats is always worth it right?!  Jetty Ambassador Russ Griffin is one of the best dudes that we have ever traveled with and he recently aborted a SoCal mission to score in Central America.  As a blue collar officer of the law, Russ is really the epitome of the type of person that we aim to inspire, one who optimizes every opportunity to travel to do what they love, in this case it's snagging waves and spearing fish!  #DYOL Read More...

Drawing Lines in Portugal

Above: Santi by Jeffrey O'neil Jetty Ambassador Sean Santiago recently made his way over to Portugal for an excellent getaway.  A few buds, beautiful landscapes, wave caves, a couple of cameras and some shred sleds...what else do you need?!  We've been working with Sean over the past year and and we can't say enough about his surfing, attitude and flexibility to bust an air or bust out the 35mm!   Read More...

Homemade Macaroni

Longtime Jetty Ambassador Jamie DeWitt is half way through a dream trip with her fam!  In today's Info Age we're actually able to have some communication, so although she is way off the beaten path, check out a few photos from her first week in paradise! Read More...

La Belleza

We recently linked up with young photog Cody Hammer and the results were simply beautiful!  We won't leak the spot, but most of the sessions took place right in front of the hotel.  Cody said, "By far one of the most humbling and challenging places I’ve ever been in the water. Just when you think you’re in the perfect spot, sets double the size of anything that has come through will sweep you up out of no where".  The boys were on it before the sun came up most days... ...Showing it's teeth Julian Smith Groundhog Day in Mex...

I Nica Love You

Moose Provides

Jetty Navigator Shaun Devine recently returned from another epic journey in search of perfect waves.  For the second straight year, Captain Moose navigated the Crystal Clear to uncrowded spots, and with some bigger pulses, the boys were stoked to check out a few zones that don't usually break very well.  Shaun said that he had the privilege to surf the best lefthander of his life on this trip, a solid birthday present for sure as he made another trip around the sun on April 27th...

Avoiding Nor'easters

Above: Dallas Tolson trippin' with Team DVO There's been plenty of frothing over the four Nor'easters this season, but the stoke of a well-timed trip abroad is equitable.  Several Jetty Ambassadors are breaking in our new boardies which are scheduled to drop in just a couple of weeks.  Don't be jealous looking at these warm, tropical destinations...just Draw Your Own Line.

Options Abroad

Aside from the jealousy factor at the desk, it's great to see our Ambassadors spreading their wings abroad!  First up, Sam Seeland (above, by Randall Cogar) was cruising below sea level in Central America.  Not too far across the border, Owen O'donnell has been bustin' lips.  Finally, Dennis O'connor recently returned from a dreamy trip across the pond.   Owen O'donnell by Fredo Barquero Dennis O'connor by Anthony Trufolo     Read More...

Less Comfort, More Travel

We've supported Ryan & Kelsey's Abandon Comfort adventures as they truly embody the Draw Your Own Line mentality!  What began as a sailing trip has really become so much more, especially due to their creativeness and attention to documenting every little detail.  It's really fun to dive into their travels whether you're keeping up with them on Insta or Youtube (their latest episode is below)!  Why not support such awesome folks ~ you're bound to learn something while checking out what they are up to!

On the Books

There's a definitive sense of relief and excitement once you get a trip on the books!  Jetty Ambassador  Blaine Walck and photog Brett Henninger have their piece of paradise dialed, so why not let them put you on the waves (and get a few photos while you're at it)?!  These guys are drawing their own lines in Central America this Winter, where are you planning to travel?  Jetty Boardshorts + Airfare = Something to look forward to...

All about the Benjamins

Ben Wingate photos courtesy of Simon Dee We have some serious stoke going on right now with two of our Jetty Ambassadors, Ben Wingate & Ben Raimo!  First off, the Benstagrom is getting some pumping surf in Bali, and rocking his Olas while navigating through crystal blue barrels.  Stateside, Raimo is back in the water, feeling great, and surfing his brains out!  He leaves for Costa this Friday...

Travel & Teach

Surf photos courtesy of Kyle Gronostajski Jetty Ambassadors Dave Werner & Brian Coen spend plenty of time bestowing wisdom on our Future Leaders, and much of that comes from their travels and experiences.  Check out some serious slaying by both of these guys on recent trips to Mexico & Central America!

DeWitt's Dream Trip

Another Jetty Ambassador had the chance to mark off Indo from her bucket list in 2017!  The beginning of Jamie DeWitt's trip was rough consisting of 72 hours in airports, delayed and cancelled flights, and no boards/luggage for the first two days.  Fortunately, a local fishing boat brought the boards and luggage out on the night of Day #2...and after that things got perfect pretty quickly...

As Advertised

As a surfer, there are few things that are considered a bucket list must aside from following in the footsteps of Rick Cain to check out the North Shore, and the pilgrimage to Indonesia to spend a couple of weeks on a boat with your mates scoring uncrowded, perfect waves.  Like most people, life starts to get in the way, then debt and work, and before you know it you wake up and you're 37 and still haven't been on that one trip that has always lingered in the back of your mind.  So there comes a time where you...
