  • Get bidding for The Skatehouse

    Fancy yourself an epic piece of skate memorabilia? Perhaps a copy of Jay-Boy, signed by none other than skateboard legend JAY ADAMS himself! Yeah…we thought so!

    Here at Ocean Sports Board Riders, we like to support the local skate community, so we’ve donated an awesome signed copy of Jay-Boy to the guys down at The Skatehouse to auction off and raise funds for The Skatehouse Skatepark.

    Jay Adams is one of the most influential skateboarders of all time and one of the original members of Z-Boys, the world famous 70’s skateboarding group (along with Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta).  Adams is featured prominently in the award winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and in the 2005 film account of the Z-Boys origins, Lords of Dogtown.

    Jay's stepfather Kent Sherwood was one of the founders of Z-Flex skateboards in 1976, he was also an amateur photographer with skills! Jay-Boy features over 100 pages of classic photographs, rare early moments of Jay, his friends and his lifestyle.

    Jay-Boy was produced in limited run and as you can imagine, a signed copy is pretty damn rare (and special).


    The signed copy of Jay-Boy is up for auction on eBay CLICK HERE to view the listing and make a bid (opens in new window). Auction ends at 9pm on 4th August and all proceeds go to The Skatehouse

    Great prize, great cause – get your bid on folks!

  • Greatest ever surf trick - 8 foot Alley-Oop!

    Is this the greatest ever surf trick? 20-year-old Hawaiian surfing prodigy John John Florence pulled off an awesome trick at the Oakley Pro in Bali, scoring a perfect 10 for his seemingly impossible 'Alley oop'.

    The trick has immediately been praised it as possibly the best in surfing history by experts, with his time in the air making it so incredible.

    Greatest ever surf trick


    Using the strong waves at Keramas, Indonesia, Florence launched a whopping eight feet into the air, rotated 360 degrees and landed safely on the rolling wave.

    Surfing's scoring system meant that Florence could not be beaten in his heat, and advanced directly into the next round of the competition.

    "I was in the air and saw the bottom and everything happened so fast that I was just reacting. I claimed it pretty hard, but I was so stoked," said Florence.

    Do you think this is the greatest ever surf trick? Let us know!

    Jetty Clothing

    Community & charity are two pillars on which the Jetty brand stands proudly upon.  They are dedicated to bettering our environment, bringing people together and helping those in need. Based on the Jersey Shore, when Hurricane Sandy wiped out the community Jetty naturally wanted to do their bit, and founded the Sandy Relief Project, for which they have donated an awesome $278,285 to date.

    "As Hurricane Sandy approached the Jersey Shore, we knew that we would be springing into action in some way. Little did we know that the Superstorm would totally devastate our homes, most of New Jersey & beyond. Our plan of action, once we regained power, was to design a T-shirt and get it online so that we could immediately raise money for victims and first responders. We launched this project on Wednesday, October 31st, two days after the destruction."

    Jetty have donated an awesome $278,284 to date to the Sandy Relief Project!
