Slashing & Spearing

Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold just doesn't slow down!  Cody Hammer caught him slashing lips as well as diving for dinner in the Outer Banks last weekend.  What a rewarding day - talk about Drawing You Own Line! Read More...

Stay Covered Up

Staying covered up will be key to easing back toward normal social conditions.  While we're working on restocking our gaiters, our Ambassadors have been keeping busy underwater and on top of it.  Ryan Leopold (rocking the Apex L/S Solar &  Mary Lee Snapback) wasn't within 20' of another diver while spearing Blackfish and Pete Machotka didn't come close to running anyone over in that backside sneaker!

See A Spray, Send A Spray

Above: Ryan Leopold by Rick Leopold There are a lot of challenges out there keeping us active during the quarantine!  The #SeeASpraySendASpray has everyone stoked, plus it is fun to dig through old surf photos if you don't have a freshie.  Here are a few Jetty Ambassadors throwing serious spray just in the last week or so...

The Bounty

Something often missed is the interaction between our Ambassadors.  This past Winter we captured too many familiar faces hunting waves up and down the East Coast.  Check out The Bounty, an ode to our roots in the crazy, fun, ever-changing landscape of the industry that gave us our start back in 2003.  Draw Your Own Line!

Leopold Unscathed

The OBX saw a few consistent days of South swell last week, but unfortunately the conditions were also quite sharky.  There were multiple sightings and (3) known attacks on Monday alone.  Lucky for our Ambassador Ryan Leopold, he only got bumped once and was more focused on finding tubes as opposed to men in grey suits...

Ain't No Fluke!

Check out Jetty Ambassador Dave Werner slaying fluke in our waterproof Clam Shell Jacket!  As we gear up for the next Holiday, July 4th, here's a flashback to MDW with Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold showing some independence down South! Barrel sequence courtesy of Cody Hammer Read More...

Catching Up

Above: Tim Daley landing Tuna back in SEPT There have been a lot of waves and a lot of fish caught on the East Coast this Fall!  Sometimes its a fresh meal, but most of the time we subscribe to catch and release (most definitely with sharks, for multiple reasons)!  Here's a quick rundown of what our Ambassadors have had on the end of their line over the past couple months...

The Banks, the place to be!

Above: Ryan Leopold spot checkin' by Matt Lantz We heard the rumblings, and countless heads including plenty of Jetty Ambassadors scored the OBX last week!  Hurricane Leslie forced Logan Hayes up from Florida, Dallas Tolson played host and Ryan Leopold shot down from VA Beach.  If you made the trip, then the sessions likely outweighed the miles traveled and made things well worth it!

Chris Hits the Banks

Above: Blaine Walck by Adam Roth Hurricane Chris reached Category 2 status and produced some fun, warm surf on the Outer Banks.  While us Jersey boys didn't get much of a taste, we were stoked for our Ambassadors who got on it down in NC!  They'll tell you that nothing beats Summertime in the OBX!

A Springsuit & a Spear

Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold recently navigated South for a great combo day of fishing and surfing.  A couple of slobs with the spear gun marked his best dive to date, and warm waters allowed for the springsuit to be shed mid-session when he went barrel hunting.  Man, there is nothing like those first feels, especially when you pulled your own dinner from the deep!    Read More...

Springtime Fun w/ Ryan Leopold

Fresh off of a trip to Nicaragua, Jetty Navigator Ryan Leopold has been finding some fun waves back home this Spring! Nothing like having two skilled shooters behind the cameras from both land (Cody Hammer) & Sea (Callaway Ramsey)! Read More...

Leopold misses Riley, but...

Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold made the decision to hit Central America last week.  He didn't lament about missing Winter Storm Riley back home in VA/NC because he scored in #waveland!  Ryan kept plenty busy getting shacked as well as handing out Jetty schwag to locals ~ stoked! Read More...

Frozen Sounds

Buxton locals are saying that they haven't seen the Sound side frozen out nearly a half mile since the 80's!  Our Ambassadors didn't let the conditions deter them from getting wet though.  Dallas Tolson nabbed a perfect tube (above) while Ryan Osmond braved the elements from behind the lens (hey, it takes two)!  Meanwhile, Ryan Leopold didn't shiver one bit while nailing this tricky sequence courtesy of Sarah Nascimento...

Emerald Green

(Above: Shaun Devine by Mason Casey) Our Ambassadors in and around the Outer Banks (NC) have been scoring emerald green tubes in board shorts, and the run of waves looks to continue!  Shaun Devine scored some solitude courtesy of Hurricane Jose and Ryan Leopold was on the same program!  Big ups to the guys behind the cameras for scoring a few great shots!     Shaun Devine by Mason Casey Ryan Leopold by Callaway Ramsey Ryan Leopold by Bob Hovey    Read More...

Postin' at the Pier

Really, what is better then getting barreled in board shorts?!  Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold made the most of Hurricane Gert, posted up at the pier, and had a perfect Summer day of tubes!  Check out a few photos courtesy of Brian Jones and Sarah Nascimento!   Read More...

Rewind: Ryan Leopold

Everybody knows that the Banks are a magnet for waves, and here is Jetty Ambassador Ryan Leopold doing his thing over the past several weeks out there.  Ryan landed a shot in ESM's End of April North Carolina Swell Gallery (photo: Jadapacaveli) and below you can check out a little excerpt from when Brian Jones was filming for Carolina Gold!   OBX: Ryan Leopold from Jetty on Vimeo.   Read More...
