Sunday water coloring with my #gypsyjames. No prizes for guessing who painted what.

#gypsyjames and I hiked up to this vantage point hoping to get the perfect empty coastline shot, when all of a sudden these three appeared and made it their idyllic backdrop. Thanks a lot guys… @kellyslater @kalanimiller @oleemamiller

#gypsyjames really wanted to see a horse today… She saw plenty of other cool things, like Jackson Browne performing live with @kellyslater and David Crosby. Then caught some of her best waves yet, literally surfed over the top of a baby leopard shark, laughed at a passing seal, joked about finding Nemo and being swooped up by pelicans, and even safely took a big whitewash to the face… But sadly no horses for this kid today. Thanks for freezing this moment @iamsarahclark, and to the Miller family for all their warmth and welcoming us to the awesome Ranch party x @oleemamiller @kalanimiller @jason_miller @charlene_miller

The wind picked up and almost blew us away, but #gypsyjames was seeing rainbows, and it doesn’t get much better.

Looking forward to spending some time with these books my brother @elifaen was kind enough to send for my 40th. Especially your story @thomasvictorcarroll. From what I know, it’s as brave as any drop at Pipe you’ve taken, and further testament to your character. And @ckoteen you’re sure to fuel some more wanderlust in me with your book of the best waves. Cheers guys, appreciate the work and good times coming my way.

Been surfing #Malizoo the past decade and am such a fan of the experience, and characters there, despite the outrageous crowds and general lack of any surfing etiquette in the lineup. But as good as I’ve seen it, rarely have I witnessed or enjoyed real barrels like the past couple days. Here’s another shot from the sequence Steve Hadley captured yesterday. Good times, and very stoked to call this part of the coast home.

#bigwednesday wasn’t exactly huge or anything, but sure was amazing to see LA come alive and have good waves breaking off every point, beach and rocks. The Bu is such a special place and I’m stoked I snuck a couple in. Thanks Steve Hadley for capturing this fleeting moment and posting it on  http://thecentralshaft.blogspot.com/

It’s been a great week of waves in LA. Thanks @jtappis for bringing this shot by @alesmasciotti to my attention from a beautiful looking day north of Malibu last week. It’s a rarity to find myself going left in LA, let alone gaining any tunnel vision. #lovematuse

Surf clinic time for @tarowatanabe_ by the guru @bradgerlach. Such a privilege to witness taro’s progression from grom to super shredder… Already one of the best surfers I see around LA, and he just turned 12. With Gerr’s coaching it’s only a matter of when, for this kid and his rising star.

Before I was Jesse Alias Faen, I was the baby of @betsyfaen and @profaen. My earliest stats included breast feeding… And it wasn’t long before a life of constant travel would commence. From this humble beginning 40 years ago in Rockhampton, Qld Australia, to the world I’ve seen since, and where I wake this morning in Topanga, California, I’m nothing but grateful for the family I have and the friends who inspire and make me smile. Thank you all for birthday wishes, your love and support. Means everything to this kid X

40 years ago I was conceived in this surf wagon, random single fin board on top, somewhere around Crescent Head, Australia, by these two amazing humans @profaen @betsyfaen. Neither of my parents surf, which makes the photo even better, but they obviously set the scene for the life I was destined to live. Love them so much, and owe all my adventures to a couple of cute hippies X
