The Way We Was – Alex Duke Intro

Please view this full clip to experience the comedic genius of Jetty team rider Alex Duke!

Cadillac Ranch Sticker Slap!

Fritz is back in Boston after 6 or so weeks on the road…From the sound of it their trip couldn’t have gone better! 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? Send them over…we’re starting a sticker slap gallery real soon! Send em to


The Surfers @ Asbury Lanes

This is a little throwback from when The Surfers (Kelly Slater, Rob Machado & Peter King) played The Fastlanes. Check out Jetty team rider Dave Werner getting his 15, ummmm 5, seconds of fame!

Spread love, not war…

Our good friend Erik Jurgensen (aka Burgy) & his cousin Danny Margagliano (longtime NJ ripper) were down in Costa recently. While we’re stuck in the cold back home, Jetty is quite fortunate to have such great people representing us abroad. One thing we’ve always accomplished through traveling is spreading the good Jetty vibes to locals. Be it a few free t-shirts or just conversation, it’s crucial to show natives our appreciation. In the end, that mutual understanding and shared love of surfing is what makes us all smile! Here’s a couple shots and a few more on Jetty’s official Facebook page! Thanks boys!

The Red Baron strikes again!

Having shared an office with Jon Coen for a few years, we’re known for going tit for tat & thrashing each other over emails, but it’s all in good fun. Hell, I even wrote a little song about him when we were in Barbados, but we’ll save “Jonny Sumeritan” for another time! We surf a ton, break it all down and laugh over fish tacos quite a bit. In all seriousness, Coen is one of the hardest working dudes in the industry – hustlin’ every day from running the surfing blog on ESPN to draining oil for his Veg-mobile to working on his solar-powered house. He’s also an instrumental part of the Jetty Clam Jam. Here the old Red Baron is caught biking up the street mid-blizzard by his wife Ann. This photo, along with a few others of Royce Weber & Brian Coen shredding were recently a part of ESM’s “February Feast” – check it out!

PR to the pool with B-Dubbs

Brian Williams always escapes the cold, Jersey winters for a bit, but here’s a little vid by Rob Kelly of the boys trying to cure the blues of a long, cold flat spell a couple of weeks ago!

Where in the world is Randy Townsend?

Randy Townsend’s been seen in a ton of places from Ron Jon’s billboards to icy, left barrels in front of the lens of Luke Simpson to the Jetty NYE bash – but where is he now?! Stay tuned for weekly updates on his whereabouts and some insane video footage! Paging Mr. Edmund Randall Townsend…please report back to Jetty base camp.

Soul outta water…

It’s true, you can find a Jetty team surfer out of the water (not often) once in a while. Check out Jon Coen’s blog on ESPN for proof that Petey Machotka was bouncing with the Souls! Photo Credit: Tom Spader.

Coconut Joe stopped in his tracks and said, “I’m more photogenic than he is”…Coconut Joe needs a Dot Fade Jetty T!
