If you're on Instagram and enjoy checking out surf photos of your favorite female surfers, we'd be honored if you followed ours at http://www.instagram.com/jettygirlsurfmag. In addition, we'll be featuring a few giveaways through our feed in the next couple of weeks and we'd be stoked if you joined up so we could keep you posted as details unfold.
We know what you're thinking. Mid-May is certainly not summer ...yet a trip to the beach earlier today sure felt like summer, so much so that we've decided to kick off Jettygirl's annual summer photo feature a bit early this year. The water's warming up, the sun's out and there's no May Gray to be seen. We'll be adding regularly to this photo feature over the next four months so check back often. We hope that all of you have a wonderful summer and for those of you on the globe who are entering winter shortly, we hope these images will keep you inspired as you're pulling on your 4/3 fullsuits. Enjoy!
Volcomunity Presents "Catching Up with Claire Bevilacqua"
Location: Bud Light Lime Surf Series, San Clemente, May 2011
Just before summer I was given the opportunity to follow Claire Bevilacqua around with a video camera for a couple of days during the first contest of the Bud Light Lime Surf Series. Claire ripped in the event and went on to win the competition...a perfect ending to this little video clip. After filming was completed, the files were shipped off to Orange County where Volcom's talented editors got down to business.
Guest appearances by Kamalei Alexander, Benji Weatherly,...
As we embark on another season of sunshine, we feel that there's no better way to celebrate summer than to showcase a few photos from our favorite time of year. Our goal here (more or less) is to post an image or two every few days so check back often to see what's new. We wish you all the best of times this summer and for those of you on the globe who are entering winter right now, I hope these will keep you stoked as you're pulling on your fullsuits. Enjoy!

I wouldn't normally share a Facebook exchange on here but this one was pretty lame on my part...
Chris: "Come back soon...your mind would be blown by how good Lowers has been lately."
Claire: "Naaaaa, blown outta pits in the desert is way more appealing than Trestles...haaaaa."
After watching Claire and Keala in this clip, it made me wonder about the current women's world tour schedule. In 2011, not one wave on the tour will come close to matching the challenge of these heaving desert barrels. Why on earth is this year's world title being decided in Huntington Beach? Anyone have an answer...

I made the trek by air from the East Coast to the West. The West is a much more rugged and intense part of Australia. Western Australia is what I would imagine the East to have been like back in the days when England sent the convicts here as punishment ...untouched and enchanted. This was notably the first surf trip I have done in a long time that hasn't involved competing for the extent of my stay and it was a very different vibe to travel on.
I traveled with Kiwi Wini Paul and Californian Bo Stanley down to our friend Claire Bevilacqua's house. Her house is approximately three hours down...
An Afternoon with Serena Brooke, Part One of Two
JettyGirl Online Surf Magazine's Interview with a Living Legend
In the mid-90's I went for a mid-morning surf at Lowers when a nicely directed head-high swell snuck into the famous Southern California pointbreak. About an hour into the session I saw a girl surf waves like I had never seen them surfed before. Wave after wave she'd drive into flawless figure-8 roundhouse cutbacks followed by extended tail-drop floaters. I actually got out of the water to watch, soon learning that the surfer was none other than Australia's Serena Brooke.
