Jetty Clam Jam

It's On!!! The Clam Jam Runs Tomorrow, September 10
68th Street in Brant Beach, 8:00 AM Start

Contest Info

A Local Surf Contest Celebrating Our Culture in the LBI Region...

We created the Clam Jam to bring our community together. We relish in the fact that new friendships are forged every year. The Jam is always a top day of the year for so many people.

We shuffle our schedules, track swells, and anxiously await the most opportune day to hold this event. We realize that plans change so much as the forecasts do, so if you are committed, start apologizing to your significant other now... because we wait until it's really good!

2022 Registration is Now Open

The Jetty Clam Jam is a team-oriented surf contest pairing our area's next generation surfers with more experienced wave riders. The first (96) surfers to sign up will have their names scribed on clam shells. The median age determines which pool you are entered into before being randomly paired with another surfer.

If you would like to sign up as an alternate, please email


Event Info

The 16th annual Jetty Clam Jam is almost here! The contest waiting period begins Saturday, September 10, 2022.

The event is run on a Saturday or Sunday in September when the waves and weather are favorable. We reserve the right to run the contest on a weekday once November hits, but will do our best to optimize a weekend date.

October 1st, October 8th, and October 15th are blackout dates due to Chowderfest, Shellabration, and Jetty Partner John Clifford's wedding (congrats John!), so the contest will not be held on either of those days.

Surfers: Check in at 7am. First heat in the water at 8am (at the latest). We're battling daylight with 96 surfers. If you cannot make the event once it is a go, then please let us know so we can fill in an Alternate surfer.

Sponsors: Setup begins at first light and goes until 8am. Set up using our scaffold as a central point. A tractor will be sweeping through between 1-3pm.
