Plenty of barrels to be had at the Jetty Clam Jam this year
Josh Law immediately set the tone in the finals with a huge front side barrel to floater combo. Later in the heat, Jetty Ambassador Pete Machotka countered with a backside barrel. Steve Carpitella, owner of Equity Prime, one of Jetty’s largest corporate supporters, surfed with power all day long. He had flown in at 7am Saturday, right into the storm, from Southern California where he was working remotely, but more importantly surfing daily. Jamie Whitesell has held down the North end of LBI for years and has now obtained tworunner ups in the Clam Jam. Whitesell Construction is a perennial sponsor and supporter of the Jetty brand as well. “We couldn’t ask for a better final this year, and all four of those guys surfed so solid”, said Jeremy DeFilippis, Jetty CEO and Contest Organizer. “Everyone knows how incredible Pete has been surfing and this won’t be the last final that you see him in”.
