Desimas got his DEATHWISH!

Jetty team rider John Desimas made a trip down to Academy Skatepark in Connecticut this past week for the “Hammer the Handrail” Deathwish contest. Lucky for John (wearing a black tee in the clip) the trip paid off & he walked away with first place for his Switch Front Blunt! It probably didn’t hurt that John did just about every trick in his bag (switch and regular) down the rail. Congrats to John’s homie Alex Fihlo (wearing a red tee) for taking second…Dolphin flip!?

Kepich keepin’ on…

We mentioned a while back that Kim had a pretty busy agenda…we weren’t kidding! Miss Kepich just got back from yet another trip and even took 2nd in a contest down there! “The people of Nicaragua get so into the contests, it was nice competing in it. Definitely a different vibe and a lot more energy than NJ contests.” Keep on keepin’ on Kim! Thanks to Donald of Zoomnicaragua for the photos!

Summer, small waves & stripers…

Yesterday finally felt like summer….all of that rain in May almost made us forget about what is upon us! Lots of people on the beach, that SE wind chop, fisherman at every jetty and a bunch of surfers in between (even saw this “rad” guy bare-backing it)! When the summer kicks in about 2 weeks from now we’ll all be happy to be outside, most likely thirsty for bigger & better waves, but quenching it with skating, making that summer dolo & fooling around on boards we don’t normally ride. With summer comes events so don’t forget what Jetty is up to in June: Speakeasy party (6/10), Jetty presents Shunda K of Yo Majesty (Philly; 6/21), Black Diamond Skate Fest (6/25), Center City Skate contest (6/27) and of course a whole lot more!

Jetty x Tweeting, ugh…

Without a doubt you are (so are we) sick of hearing the social media buzz word over and over and over again on every media outlet imaginable for the past six months, however twitter, if used properly, offers a new way of connecting with both customers and friends…We’ve been long talking about jumping on the bandwagon (something we don’t often like to do) and decided it would be a good idea to start contributing to the twitter community. Without further ado we present http://www.twitter.com/thejettylife. Follow us for all things Jetty, commentary on surf, skate & indie culture, DIY, production, business, music, our extended Jetty family & of course Jetty discounts and exclusive deals! We look forward to tweeting about things that matter and not how delicious our WaWa hoagie was…by the way, did anyone see the @WaWa hoagie fest tv commercials?! Just kidding
