A Few More Boards...

Above: Randy Townsend by Trevor Murphy Okay, one more flashback to first heavy swell of the cold season on the East Coast!  As Surfline's Slam Dunk Swell feature states, this wasn't the biggest swell, but it was pretty mean, and our Ambassadors definitely logged some for the memory bank.  Did you paddle?  Get slammed?  Break a board?  We've heard it all...on to the next (colder; bigger) one...!

On the beach @ The Belmar PRO

This year's Belmar PRO is upon us and we'll be posted up on the beach on Saturday (9/8) and Sunday (9/9).  Swing by our tents for some gear or to meet our Ambassadors!  Competing this year from our crew are Dallas Tolson (NC), Owen O'Donnell (NY), Pete Machotka (NJ), Keaton Fortney (NJ), Logan Hayes (FL), Pat Parenty (NJ) and Randy Townsend (NJ)!  We can't forget Morgan Iglay  who will be competing in the Womens  open as well.  The track of Hurricane Florence is currently uncertain, but it looks like we're going to get some wave action (fingers crossed for no landfall...

Central Jersey Stoke

Above: Pat Parenty by Timmy Torchia Stoke levels are high this Summer and with a recent run of small, fun waves, our Central Jersey contingent has been spending plenty of time in the water!  Jetty Ambassadors Timmy Torchia, Pat Parenty, James Contreras and Cooper Fortney all attended our first ever Jetty Summit meeting this past Friday and we'll have a nice wrap-up about that soon.  Clearly, these guys are dedicated to spreading the positive vibes of our brand and are always working hard to obtain that DYOL content!

The Summer Bump

Above: Logan Hayes by NPI Productions Tropical Storm, Hurricane, wind swell...whatever, we just want some fun, Summer waves!  We're always looking for that perfect Summer day with warm water, offshores, and conditions that transplant our minds to far off places that we've traveled to.  Even if it isn't perfect, it feels great to be in boardies and grabbing a couple with your buds...

Local Pro: Tim Torchia

Jetty Ambassador Tim Torchia recently landed a great feature on Surfline!  Focusing on the Jersey Shore with the Garden State Native unveils much of what we have already known and been inspired by, from Timmy's mentoring of Pat Parenty to his dedication behind the lens.  This is an excellent reminder that title doesn't always dictate behavior (see Clerks), and so often our crafts are simply the bridges to our callings...

International Vibes

Above: Jetty Ambassador Randy Townsend, ready for Summer by Kyle G. As I type this post, I'm overwhelmed with the thoughts of what Surfing has done for me and so many others worldwide.  The feeling that surfing brings to you, from your first time standing up to getting a sick one, is a somewhat indescribable joy!  On Saturday, June 16th we celebrate International Surfing Day, a nod to the sport, the lifestyle and all of the sustainability that comes with it.  We have a laundry list, but would love to know how surfing has inspired you to Draw Your Own...

One More For Da Hood?

If you read our last post, then you know we are dying to jump into some boardies and paddle, but jeez, how many mackin', grey/brown, snowy, downright heaving days have we seen in the Northeast this year!?  This most recent swell reminded us that the water will remain cold for quite some time, but thankfully we are gritty and used to it!  Check out Jetty Ambassadors  Pat Parenty (Above, by Timmy Torchia) and Sean Santiago (Below, by Josh Ketcham)...not even flinching.    Read More...

The Slater Day

(Above: Pat Parenty by Keith Forsythe) Well, so much for saying that October was a slow month for waves in Jersey as it ended with a phenomenal run including what will surely be dubbed The Slater Day.  The King surfed Monmouth County and took over Insta, but a ton of other frothing natives who look up to him got slabs as well!  Check out a few Jetty Ambassadors that found treats a day early on Mischief Night...

A Firm Irma + The Belmar Invitational

(Above: Dallas Tolson amping at the Belmar Invitational by D R Stockdale Photography) Almost everyone that we know has friends and family in the Caribbean & Southeastern US, so first and foremost, our hearts go out to everyone in Hurricane Irma's destructive path.  On the heels of our Houston Essentials Drive, and while we develop aid options for Irma, we're trying to stay positive.  Back in Jersey, we had a fun-filled weekend at the Belmar Invitational with a great crew of Jetty fam and Ambassadors!

Fish or Famine

(Above) Dave Werner snagging some doormats Summertime, and the livin' is easy...a fair assessment considering the seasonality of the Northeast.  Our Ambassadors in the region see it no differently as they soak up the sun, enjoy the warm water, get up a bit earlier, and get a little more done during these dog days.  Take a peek at what our crew has been up to, it's probably very similar to what you and your family have been enjoying!

Monmouth Co. Hustlers

Jetty Ambassador Pat Parenty seems to never miss even the smallest window of waves.  Of course, photog Timmy Torchia was right there to capture Parenty's progress!  Pat will be sticking around town, and close to the beach, as he was recently accepted to Monmouth University ~ Congrats dude!  In other news about the county, longtime Jetty Ambassador Dennis O'Connor finally scored a photo riding one of his own shapes thanks to Michael Guccione!

Back to that Nor'easter

Last week's Nor'easter caused some serious damage, but surfers got over the wind, rain, and flooding quite easily.  Here are a few more Jersey slabs (before and after the storm) featuring Jetty Ambassadors Dave Werner, Pat Parenty, and Cooper Fortney.  You can also check out ESM's Nor'easter Swell Gallery for a nice look at how things lit up on the entire East Coast...

Helena: Tube Sounds & Beat Downs

Winter Storm Helena produced some heavy waves in the Northeast, and plenty of tubes up and down the East Coast!  ESM's Swell Gallery showcases a bunch of Jetty affiliates, namely Ambassador Pat Parenty who was picking off countless lefts over a frigid, 4-hour session.  Photog Timmy Torchia isn't afraid to get into the water, but even shooting from the beach was a tough task on this sub-zero day.  Check out his article Winter Storm Helena Takes Over in New Jersey via The Inertia!     Read More...

Barreling into 2017

Pat Parenty became an official Jetty Crew member halfway through 2016 and has put in some serious work!  Here is one of the last days of December when Pat was finding tubes of all sorts of shapes and sizes...and of course Timmy Torchia was right there to capture it from the water!  We're looking forward to a full year of rad content from this duo!

PR Push

Jetty Ambassador Pat Parenty is home safe from a fun trip with the Hyperflex team!  Pat reported surfable conditions every day and good stretch (no rashes) from our SS17 boardies.  Check out a few shots courtesy of Matt Ciancaglini who documented the trip... Read More...

Parenty getting Hyper

Election Day!

Election Day '16 certainly caused some commotion on land, but surfers enjoyed a busy day at sea after voting too!  The Inertia ran Timmy Torchia's Jersey's 2016 Election Day Swell gallery featuring Team Riders Pat Parenty & Cooper Fortney.  A little further North, Team Rider Owen O'donnell checked in with a quick video shot by Ethan Blatt!  Owen O'donnell - Election Day from Jetty on Vimeo.   Read More...
