Welcome to JettyGirl.com.
Jettygirl was developed in response to the popularity
of the Boardfolio Girl category of Boardfolio.com:
The Surfer's Directory. While that resource serves
up plenty of surf links and destinations for female
surfers, we wanted to offer something more substantial.
With the recent closure of other women's surfing
publications, we thought it was a great time to
offer a girls-only site that would give in-depth
coverage to one talented surfer each month of
the year. We hope you enjoy this month's issue
and that you'll make return visits throughout
the year to read future JettyGirl editions. We
welcome your feedback so feel free to drop us
an email if you like.
by Kyla Langen
A top competitor on the ASP
WQS, Kyla has her sights set on qualifying for
the 2007 World Championship Tour. With her smooth,
carving style and vertical backside attack, Kyla
will be a major force to be reckoned with when
she makes the WCT.
An accomplished writer, Kyla's
had numerous stories and interviews published
in SG Magazine and Surf Life for Women Magazine.
We are stoked that Kyla has teamed with JettyGirl
for surfer interviews and stories.
by Chris Grant
When Chris rode his first
surfboard in 1981 his life was altered forever.
Of those twenty-five surfing years, the past twenty
have been spent working throughout the surf industry.
Somewhere along the way Chris picked up both website
development and photography and in 1998 his passions
merged with the creation of Boardfolio.com: The
Surfer's Directory. Along with Boardfolio.com,
Chris' photos have been published in Disney Magazine,
Popular Photography, Surfer Magazine, Eastern
Surf Magazine, Surf Life for Women and Surfshot
Magazine. His clients include Roxy, Volcom Girls,
O'neill, Gravis Footwear, Anarchy Eyewear, Aleeda
Wetsuits, Surfride Boardshops, Surfline, Roxy
Surf Camps, NSSA, and Linda Benson Surf Camps.
