  1. Sorry if this rant is kind of all over the place… but that's exactly what it was, a rant. I let the camera keep rolling, and let my thoughts hit the mic. I hope this can speak to anyone who deals, or has dealt, with social media anxiety comparing themselves to others, or thinking they are missing out on something.

    HERE'S TO BEING TRANSPARENT, CONTENT, AND STRIVING FOR THE JOY AND GREATNESS WE ARE MEANT TO EXPERIENCE IN EVERY DAY!

  2. Thanks for sharing such an honest reality check so many of us need. Keep rolling out the thoughtful content. God bless brother!

  3. Awesome entry Brett. Instagram are moments in time in our lives nothing more. For me, my IG is really my work page for my photography.

  4. What happened though cause I was thinking when that swell hit over the next couple days after the knee high sess there was going to be some legit waves there…

  5. You hit the nail on the head brotha. Most people that post on Instagram facebook or whatever else are seeking validation or likes and it takes away the purity of that moment. In the past I would almost get resentful or upset about people’s post or people asking to be friends but won’t say hi in public. Or being out and seeing everyone on and missing out on moments and it’s almost like they are addicted to it thAt they might miss something in a fantasy world

  6. Great perspective Brett! As a music teacher with a YT channel and tv show in the works, it's easy to fall down the hole and compare. In the end, we are only competing against ourselves. Keep on putting out positive vibes bro. This is what the world needs more of. Come down to SD and let's get some waves. Now, where did you say this secret wave was? so hilarious. ha

  7. Hey Bret, id take what your saying a step further. What if I told you just by participating in social media you are helping destroy the social fabric in how humans interacted with on another for a millennia.. and that’s not even my opinion, that’s what a top software engineer of Facebook said as well as their x-CFO. In other words -they know exactly what they’re doing. They have the data.

  8. People share the highlights- other people 's lives comes with other people's problem s -life is a contest with yourself

  9. I saw Kelly Slater surfing at Rincon a few times.  The local surfers at Rincon are really good but Kelly Slater was at a level that made me realize why he is so highly regarded.  Before I was informed of who he was, I thought he was some kind of ninja.

  10. Kelly is here in Bali waiting on the swell to pick up for the contest here! Surfed with him today! Seemed like he was not so happy about the waves today either. Contest was supposed to be on today but the waves never showed up!

  11. Hahahahaha. When I was at wrk I saw the Instagram clip. I almost didn't believe it!! Hahaha.. great job brett

  12. Be content with where you are…
    That is honestly the most beautiful message thankyou for sharing!!
    Brett you're a legend

  13. Please send info on the bunk bed in the background. Is it queen on the bottom and twin on top. I need that for my Crab Shack.

  14. Bret
    I live in Wyoming and it’s so refreshing to hear and see your being real!!!
    Cheers to you and your fam and to being content.
    Thx for all the stoke

  15. It gets annoying because all my sister posts is videos of herself listening to music with a fake snapchat filter and perfect angle
