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!

In Carissa Moore's first full year on Tour, she accomplished what so many have predicted for her over the years of her young life, an ASP World Title. It's difficult to imagine the kind of pressure she was under to accomplish the goal. While most surfers are given a number of years to find their footing in the pro ranks, you could almost feel the industry's expectations that anything short of a world title would be a letdown. But there would be no slip-ups, no letdown, no unfulfilled goals ...Carissa charged through the Tour schedule, pushed performance...

In 2003 for no apparent reason that I can recall, I registered the domain name JettyGirl.com.
Wanting to revisit a hobby I hadn't done much since high school, in the spring of 2005 I gathered together as many coins as I could find and purchased a Canon 20D along with a lens that was better known for bird photography than for surf photography, the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L.
