About JettyGirl Online Surf Magazine

Welcome to Jettygirl was developed in response to the popularity of the Boardfolio Girl category of 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 a deserving segment of the surfing culture. We welcome your feedback so feel free to drop us an email if you like.

:: About the Publisher ::

When Chris Grant rode his first surfboard in 1981 his life was altered forever. Of those twenty-eight surfing years, the past twenty-two have been spent working throughout the surf industry and educational fields. During a multi-year stint at a non-profit corporation (Books & Beyond in the Solana Beach School District), Chris focused on website development and in 1998 his passions of web design and photography merged with the creation of The Surfer's Directory. Along with and JettyGirl, Chris' photos have been published in Disney Magazine, Popular Photography, Surfer Magazine, Eastern Surf Magazine, Surf Life for Women, MorSurf Magazine, Longboard Magazine, Surfwest Magazine, Pacific Beach Magazine, Encinitas Magazine, Surfshot Magazine, Lemonade Magazine, FOAM Magazine, Slack Magazine (Germany), and have been shown on air on both FuelTV and News 8 San Diego. His clients include Roxy, Volcom Girls, O'neill, Gravis Footwear, Insight, Fulcrum Surf, Hot Tuna, Katin, NK Surf Products, Osiris, Anarchy Eyewear, Honolua Surf Co., Aleeda Wetsuits, Surfride Boardshops, Surfline, Roxy Surf Camps, NSSA, and Linda Benson Surf Camps.
