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!

Clam Jam Registration

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.

Selection Night will take place at The Old Causeway Steak & Oyster House on Friday October 6, 2017 (9pm). Alternates are welcomed as the teams are subject to change due to vacations, injuries, family matters, etc. (shoot us an email at info@jettylife.com) if you would like to be added as an alternate).

Surfers must be vetted and reign from the LBI Region. We have a list of 300+ guys, from groms to legends - please help us build that list by suggesting surfers who you think deserve to compete!

Online Registration is Currently Closed

Event Info

Update: Congratulations to Randy Townsend & Evan Zodl, winners of the 11th Annual Clam Jam. Thanks to all who participated!

The 11th Annual Jetty Clam Jam will be held at Hudson Ave in Harvey Cedars, NJ. The first potential date to have the contest is Saturday, October 7, 2017.

The event will be run on a Saturday or Sunday in October 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.

Surfers must check in at 7am on the beach and be prepared for the first heat in the water at 8am.
