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!

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...

Contreras/Torchia volunteer at AWOW

Community events are often the best way for us to reach the youth and help the less fortunate.  When we're not running our own events, our Ambassadors often step up and wave the Jetty flag while volunteering!  Recently, both James Contreras & Timmy Torchia assisted at the 1st Annual AWOW New Jersey Surf Therapy day!  We have no arguments against surfing being therapeutic ~ thanks for participating in this experience guys!

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...

Tubes All Around

Above: Jetty Ambassador Dave Werner by photog Tim Torchia Warm, mild, cold, or getting colder...we all just want to get shacked!  We've seen some extreme temps in the Northeast over the past couple of weeks, but it hasn't thwarted the hunt.  Elsewhere, in Florida and California, the name of the game and the task at hand remains the same (but those guys at least get to show a little more skin)!

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!

Who Da Guy: James Contreras

Congrats to Jetty Ambassador James Contreras for landing a Who Da Guy in ESM's August Issue #202!  James is no doubt one of the nicest, most helpful dudes that we have ever been around (and he rides a bunch of different boards really well too)!  Thanks to photog Timmy Torchia for the great shot.  In local news, big ups to surfers Timmy Raimo (Who's Da Guy / Page 29) and Sammy Jo Alvarez (ESM Girl / Page 46) ~ way to represent the LBI Region!     Read More...

(ap)PARENT(l)Y

(Above) by Mike Incitti Jetty Ambassador Pat Parenty has been plenty flexible this Winter and into Spring, but he too is ready to shed the rubber.  Check out a few of Pat's latest waves courtesy of Timmy Torchia & Mike Incitti.  (Below) by Timmy Torchia Read More...

Spring Vibes

The most recent run of swell had nothing on Stella, but it was fun, warm, and felt just a tad more flexible!  On the other side of the epic and threatening waves of the week prior, this time around we actually surfed under the sunlight.  Timmy Torchia was roaming the beach and nabbed the (above) shot of Jetty Ambassador Randy Townsend seeking some shade.  Fellow Ambassador Pete Machotka scored an afternoon session which his Father Bill captured.  Cheers to warmer days!

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!

The Art of Balance

Balance is something that we have always stressed within our company.  We founded it based on working hard to facilitate opportunity, travel, and time to pursue the things that we love to do.  Jetty Ambassador Jamie Contreras seems to master the art both in and out of the water.  We hope that you find the perfect balance in your Jetty Life as we glide into the New Year!

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...

Brackish Brand

Living in the Northeast as surfers, we learn at a young age to embrace multiple passions.  Here, Team Rider Pat Parenty, rocking his Salvage Co. Pullover, spends the day casting into inland waters while the Atlantic takes a rest... Photos courtesy of Timmy Torchia   Read More...

Boosts & Barrels

Jetty Team Rider Pat Parenty has gotten off to a quick start living The Jetty Life!  Check out Pat's recent thrashings courtesy of East Coast photog Timmy Torchia.  With a bit of a flat spell in place, look for Pat to switch things up and take to the lakes with a rod & reel this week...

The Torch is Lit!

Monmouth photog Timmy Torchia has been lighting us up with Crew photos lately!  We all waited a while for waves so it is no surprise that Team Riders Pat Parenty & Cooper Fortney were frothing and all over Ocean/Monmouth County during the past week!   Read More...

Hermine '16

After avoiding the quite serious implications of Hermine, the storm delivered some of the best waves our region has seen in a minute!  Here's a small sample of what Jersey heads enjoyed over the past few days (with surely more shots to follow)!

Small Waves

If there is one thing for sure about Summer lulls, it is that micro lines can still be fun on the right board!  Jetty Team Rider James Contreras has been kicking it in style...! Photos courtesy of Timmy Torchia Read More...
