Varton & The Sandcrabs

Brian Parnagian introduced us to his new side project Varton & The Sandcrabs last night at a BBQ in Beach Haven. After just a couple hours of practice the gang already sounds pretty good! Check them out next Thursday at 9PM in Beach Haven out front of the Tiki Taco (across from Hands store) in Beach Haven.

Brian Bowker ESA

Ask around and you’ll hear that Brian Bowker has been surfing well. Of course, a super supportive family of surfers and the tutelage of Randy Townsend doesn’t hurt! Last weekend Brian won the boys division as the CNJ ESA hosted it’s contest in Brant Beach. Great job Little Bowk! A few weeks before that the Bowker family celebrated the opening of their new deli, Bowker’s South Beach Grille, in Holgate. RT was on hand signing posters, the Ducks & Drakes rocked out and the usual good times were had by all. Posters are still available in the Jetty online store!

Hanging Five

The documentary “Hanging Five” will premiere on August 5th at 7pm at the La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas, CA.

Hanging Five is a film that follows five artists (Andy Davis, Tyler Warren, Julie Goldstein, Alex Knost & Wolfgang Bloch) who all happen to be surfers. The film, directed and produced by Christopher Cutri, documents their work and looks at different aspects of their lives and how those experiences have impacted their work. The film also looks at why the surf culture embraces and supports the arts.

Given The Power

Our friend Ryan is involved in this awesome and inspiring project that we have to share. Given The Power is a national video survey project, and film, that celebrates our diversity as well as our similarities. Check out the responses from the first question, What if you were president and even upload your own response. This project’s roots are aligned with Jetty’s as we created it so that travel, music and opportunity could become more apparent. Ryan Bott plays in the band The Following who will be performing at the Coquina Jam…he’s quite the renaissance man.

KD on fire!

Sometimes you have to think outside of the box…and into a circle. That’s why we didn’t hesitate to hook up NASCAR Nationwide driver Kertus Davis with some Jetty threads. KD does a hell of a job toughing it out amongst some serious competition on that track nearly every week. Check out the crash from a few weeks ago…and the photo our buddy Bart Kelley snapped! Rumor has it Kertus used to skate his trash to the dumpster and carve around whenever he had time outside of his busy racing career!

Matty G

Jetty is in search of both male and female models for an LBI-area photo shoot in the near future! America’s next top model, we can’t promise you that…we can only assure you that Tyra has gone off the deep end. Potential females should be 17-19 yrs old and wear a medium, males should be 17-19 yrs old and wear either a medium or large. Anyone to be considered should be a natural in front of the camera. We can promise those selected a fun day, lunch, laughs and some free gear under the art direction of Nick Zegel and the professional lens of Ann Coen. We will also be shooting video for some short website clips. If you are interested please send a few, casual photos to info@jettylife.com!

**UPDATE** This shoot is over and we’re no longer accepting photos. Keep an eye out in the future for other modeling opportunities. Thanks!
