#gypsyjames snuck in a few at Malibu today, even dropped in on the queen of style @kassiameador once. Thanks @dukeblasman for the image, @stokedchile for her 4/3mm suit, and Malibu Carl for his love. A guy actually drowned in the lineup moments before we arrived today, so my heart goes out to his family and friends.

It’s been a week since my ‘good’ motorcycle accident, and I’m definitely missing my bike. I was very fortunate to avoid serious injury, but as you can see by the images on the right, I’ve been wanting to ride since I was a kid on my dad @profaen’s bikes (still wish he had this Norton from when we lived in SF). My baby girl #gypsyjames on the left… She’s got a spirit destined for adventure too, I know that much for sure.

Beautiful sounds from Moby and Damien Jurado… “Almost Home”… took me to a place I wasn’t. Where my spirit is light and wants to sway smoothly back and forth. Not necessarily full of joy, but free to feel. Life on life’s terms. Maybe grow a little. Appreciate a moment. Share a smile…

Repost from @smashsurf and the Division surfboard ad I appeared in a lifetime ago. Believe it was 1995/6, shot at Curl Curl during a competition when the waves were actually decent. Still remember the ride, and this chapter of my life clearly. I was editing Waves magazine, working hard, but happily creating the foundation for a career in the industry I love.

These desert boots have seen plenty, and saved my toes yesterday. Still in shock by the experience, mainly cause I escaped virtually unscathed. Counting my lucky stars…

Happily walked out of the emergency room today, following a motorcycle accident on PCH this morning. Rare to hear of a good bike accident, let alone one involving an aerial maneuver over a car during peak hr traffic… Thankfully I’m humbled by minor bruises and cuts, and grateful for so many fine humans who came to my aid. From nameless witnesses, paramedics and firemen, nurses, doctors and police, to dear friends like @iamtorquato @aaron_farley and my family near @jessiesamedi #gypsyjames and far @profaen @betsyfaen @elifaen. Life moves along fast, and every moment is worth celebrating. #triumph #liferollson #anotherdayinLA

Being able to share the love of surfing, and the beach lifestyle, may be the greatest gift I ever pass along to #gypsyjames. actually riding waves takes up such a small part of my time, but these have largely shaped the better part of my entire existence. So grateful for this tandem ride yesterday at Malibu with my little lady, and for her momma @jessiesamedi capturing it

Woke up early to #gypsyjames saying she wanted to go surf. At first I  was like, ‘can we sleep a bit more? Do you want some food? Can we wait til it warms up?’… She was having none of it. ‘Daddy, we can do all that after we surf.’ Her wetsuit says it all, so #stoked x
