On Sunday, July 24 we hosted the 14th Annual Jetty Coquina Jam with 96 surfers paired into 48 teams ready to compete for the hallowed trophy and bragging rights. While all eyes were on the water and the competition in fun 1-3' conditions in clear, albeit chilly waters, the truly amazing feat was the over $46,000 the 96 competitors had raised on their own. Eight matching sponsors in: Farias Surf & Sport / Five 0 Six Boutique ($2500), The Wright Law Firm ($2500), Bird & Betty's ($2,500), Fantasy Island Amusement Park ($2,500), Playa Bowls ($2,500), Manahawkin Chrysler Jeep KIA ($2,500), RWS Painting ($2,500), CRJ Contracting ($2,500). We also had quarterfinal sponsor Equity Prime Mortgage ($5,000) and semifinal sponsor LBI Distillery ($10,000) support this cause! This event has grown each year and we are blown away by the support of our community through sponsorships, volunteers, donations, and competitors. Thanks to all the generosity we are able to help David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation support families faced with a cancer diagnosis.
At the end of the day Eden Amorelli and Audrey Iglay defeated Preslie Fender-Marotta and Jetty team rider Jamie DeWitt in the final to hoist the trophy. Congrats to all the surfers who made the most out of the marginal surf!
Finalists L-R: Audrey Iglay, Eden Amorelli, Preslie Fender-Marotta, Jamie DeWitt
