Cadillac Ranch Sticker Slap!

The crew skated with some of skateboardings best, explored the corners of this country and even stopped by Cadillac Ranch with a pocket full of Jetty stickers…Have photos of sticker slaps?

Year of the Fritz

Congrats to team rider Fritz Mead who landed himself four pages inside the most respected mag in skateboarding…THRASHER! Check it out for yourself in the March 2010 Issue.

Fritz has been on the road for the past month with our buddies Xeno, Will, Doug and a few others, skating everything in site! New Orleans, Texas, Arizona, California and more…Good thing they split from the East Coast, hardly missing the snow massacre and the winter weather. From the sound of it they won’t be home any time soon…Have fun dudes!

Dukie Love…

Alex Duke is just one of those dudes you’re happy you’ve come across whether it’s his skating, artwork or both! Not only does he represent Jetty on the pavement, but he has also designed some T’s for us (check out the “Life Death Mirror” below). Duke runs Toilet Town where he recently posted every consolidated graphic he’s created from 2005 to 2009 – it is so worth checking out, trust us! Alex has had some great press lately with a short interview in the December issue of FTK and a two-page canvas in the March issue of Thrasher – now that’s some Dukie Love!

Fritz & Max in Focus!

Check out the latest issue of Focus Skateboard Magazine for a full page photo of team rider Fritz Mead & his buddy Max Hiersteiner doubling up this relatively new barrier spot in Philly…Its often your average pusher looks at a spot and says, “Whoa, what if…”. Fritz on the other hand just makes it a reality. Lots more Fritz buzz coming soon…

Fritz in ‘Prevent this Tragedy’

Fritz Mead in Prevent This Tragedy

Fritz has a trick in the recently released Thrasher Magazine flick ‘Prevent This Tragedy’ presented by Cons. If you’ve already got the video check out Fritz kickflip into the C-Pool in the second montage…and if you haven’t seen the video yet make sure to find a copy because the whole thing is next level. Far out.

Fritz is Out of Body!

Orchard Shop video Out of Body Experience is out and although we haven’t seen the whole thing this new teaser is getting us even more amped about the video! Holy cow Fritz!

Desimas Represents in Tampa!

John Desimas just got back from Tampa Am. It was John’s second time skating the contest that has long been regarded as the top am contest in the world…If you ever want a sneak peak into who will be filling the pages of skateboard mags the next few years (if they aren’t already) just have a scroll down the list of Tampa Am semi-finalists and get familiar! Desimas had a solid showing, placing 65th out of 112 in first round qualifiers…Congrats John. Just a couple weeks back John was on tour with Keystone Skateboards repping Jetty hard at their Charm City Demo…Check it! Photo Feoli.
