Just watched this amazing @netflix doc over lunch. Tears. Full tears. @resurfacemovie is such a beautiful film about our warriors coming back from the theaters of war and now wresting the unimaginable terrors of PTSD. It's the journey of these incredible men and women into the water (and themselves) in search of moments of peace, hope, and a new story to connect with. "I could feel the oceans heart beat like it was this living breathing thing, it wasn't death and destruction, trauma and hell. I closed my eyes to go to sleep and the only thing I could dream about was catching my next wave" Finding balance and solace in healing power of nature. With all the chaos of the world it's so life affirming to share such a story of humanity. @operationsurf u are beautiful. @whiteheart you are too. And Veterans, your sacrifices are what has made this country great for 250 years!

  • Just watched this Eric. Very powerful.

  • Very cool

  • Hi @ericcolsen I was wondering if you can send a happy birthday shoutout to this sweetheart @swiss_chrisodonnell_ncisla_fan today is here bday i know it would make her day that much more special 🎉🎈😃🎂😘✨💕🌸🌺😉🎂🎈🎉

  • Local Boys 🙌🏼🎬🎥

  • Really wonderful concept ❤️

  • thank you for resurface!! so touching & beautiful

  • I want to see it. Thx for the tip 😘

  • Such stirring words Eric on this awful issue of PTSD and returning vets. It's not enough that these brave men and women have seen and endured such horrors in countries like Afghanistan, they then have to deal with PTSD when they return. My heart breaks for every one of them and I am so glad that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for some with this programme. In Australia there is a similar programme run by Surfing Australia called Soldier On which has also proved very successful with vets and PTSD. Just sitting on a surfboard in the ocean is sometimes all these vets need when they are having a bad, day, it's amazing the therapeutic affect it has. I recently watched a 1 hour long programme on local TV which interviewed returning vets, some homeless, most unable to find work, broken marriages all from the affects of PTSD, I cried for a solid hour, it was a problem that I just didn't realise was so serious here in Australia, I was so wrong. I salute all these brave vets and the volunteers who run programmes such as Soldier On and Operation Surf in the US and I thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and I really hope that Netflix Australia have this doco, I so want to watch it. 👍❤️

  • @beachbumlezlee I want to watch this, all the tears 🙈

  • I had not heard of it, but thank you. I will see her. in this crazy world that we walk we need moments to reflect. I think it will be a good movie 👍❤😊@ericcolsen

  • Nice😍😍

  • @kellytink17 I said to Marc last night ! Came up on Netflix, defo 💙😍🌊

  • Just watched this, very moving. It would be great to help veterans in England to surf as well, don't know if that is a possibility.

  • Literally just finished watching! Wish it was a whole series. Very special

  • Same here! Just finished. Amazing work for men and women who deserve our help! 💙

  • Sorry habe mein Übersetzer nicht an mein Englisch schon aus der Übung

  • Okay definitely watching that today

  • Thank u @ericcolsen !! I'll watch it. I am sure its a good movie. Have a amazing day. LOVE U 💜💜💜

  • I just watched it and it brought tears to my eyes as well. The fact these guys were going to kill themselves right after surfing but then rode a wave and that changed their life, it's incredibly powerful. Thank you for posting about this because I had no idea the power of surfing or ocean therapy, and you just opened my eyes to it. So thank you ❤️

  • Sounds like an incredible story. Their suffering is tragic.

  • Thank you @ericcolsen for sharing and the positive feedback on our program. If you have the time come up to our next Operation Surf event this October 6-12 In Avila Beach Ca in San Luis Obispo county. If you don't surf there are many ways to help. Come up it's better in person.

  • Know what I will be watching this weekend! Thank you!

  • @ericcolsen thank you so much for recommending this. It is an amazing film. Watched it on a plane and quite difficult not to cry in front of strangers. I failed.

  • @ericcolsen thank you 🙏🏼❤️

  • Just watched this it is amazing 😉 so much courage

  • Thank you for watching!

  • Thank you for sharing this ♡

  • Great movie

  • Yaaaasss, healing hearts one wave at a time! 💙💙

  • Wow! Thank you @ericcolsen for posting about our @resurface documentary. Your support means so much! If you ever want to surf. I would love to have you out. Mahalo! 🤙 🏄 #operationsurf#resurface

Me: Bear check out those elk! It’s probably a brother and sister. What do u think their names are?
Bear: Mountain cloud and Mazzero.
Me: ❤️🔥
Our 200th episode airs tonight. The reality of this number blows my mind. If u watched all the episodes back to back without sleeping it would take over 8 days to see them all. If we condensed all the filming and didn’t take weekends off it would take over 4 1/2 years straight to film. It’s crazy. Only 38 other dramas have achieved it in the history of TV. Thats because of @cbstv and @cbstvstudios and the support they have given us. We are here because of my two work brothers @llcoolj and @chrisodonnell that do all the heavy lifting. You guys are the pillars that hold up the Parthenon. We are here because of Linda and Miguel who have always anchored the show with their gravitas. We are here because of our amazing writers, producers, and CREW. Leading from the top with Gemmill, Military and @jpkous. These guys work 70-80 hours a week with no scenes off. Its because of our amazing publicity team of @katiebarkerpr and @kristenjane who haven’t slept since 2009 because they never stop working. It’s because of the extraordinary talents of @reneefelicesmith and @barrettfoa carrying pages of exposition, comedy, and MY favorite love story. It’s because of the new life that @iamnialong and @andreabordeaux have brought to the family dynamic. AND, it’s because of the best partner on TV with @danielaruah. Even when u drive me crazy and i want to jump out of a moving car to escape you, i still recognize how lucky i am to have u in my life; You’re amazing. Last and not least, the most important component of this equation is everybody that is reading this, because at the end of the day the only thing that gets a tv show to 200 epiosodes is the fans. You guys have stuck with us from Tuesday nights, to later on Tuesday nights, to Monday nights, to Sunday nights, and this year to later on Sunday nights. We are only here because of you, and my work life is this amazing because of your support and commitment to the show, so from the bottom of my heart i thank all of you. ALL of YOU!! We have to take stock of these moments to recognize and celebrate the journey!!!! Pic by the rockstar @theworldofdifference #littlebitofperfect #ncisla #200episodes #teamworkmakesthedreamwork

Me: What should i write for this picture bear?
Bear: “I’m like a seagull flying really high up in the air, and when he jumps down he goes inside the water and puts his legs out. That’s all it daddy, that’s all i want it to say.” #littlebitofperfect #fsoahu

Breaking news! @danielaruah kills it tonight! Love this amazingly strong female character. Love that Deeks is the more emotional part of the relationship. Thank u @ncisla for such a compelling love story to play, and such a interesting episode to explore the human condition; What it is to love and be loved. What it is to fear the loss of that love, a love that gives identity and significance to a man that’s searched his whole life for something to invest himself in. #ncisla #cbs

What happens when u dress for a casual day at the beach in a breezy low cut V-neck but suddenly everything goes dreadfully wrong? U get this Macy’s-mannequin-of-a-man with a very angry scowl and an unnecessarily flexed jawbone. Tonight on CBS! Good Deeks episode! #ncisla #densi #cbs

For Halloween @swrightolsen made these elaborate costumes from scratch. I on the other hand made a grill cheese from scratch. Bread. Cheese. Bread. That’s a three step process people. Three. #sandwichartist #killingit #marriedup

Sometimes I make bad decisions and end up looking like MR. T on prime time television in a Russian bath house with shirtless Arkady. Me to the director: “Should I roll my sleeves up? Should I put on all these gold chains!?!” Director: “Yes, the answer is yes” #ncisla #cbstv #newepisode

@fleshbloodfilm is the best movie of the year. I text’d this to @likemark and @teresapalmer after I saw it. I’m sharing it with u guys because it couldn’t be a more honest response to something transformational.
“I Cant tell you how much that film moved me. It was beautiful - In every facet of the word. In its fearlessness, its unflinching scope, its vulnerability, its celebration, it’s honestly, its loneliness, its heart wrenching forgiveness, its ability to communicate the struggle of the human fucking condition; What it is to be loved, to love, and to wrestle the heart the leads us - that breaks in the madness of the circumstances of our lives. Man i loved it, i love you, and i love what you bring to the world. Not fucking around, your filmmaking is making us better as a species.”
If you’re in LA, NYC, or PHILLY u need to see this movie this weekend. #independentfilms #cinematicreality #heart #realitycinema #trulyindependent #fromthemud
This is a live action shot of our 1st AD Suzanne telling me that the cops want me to drive this Porsche 911 turbo at 38 mph and me telling her that I’m vocally dyslexic which means I’ll be going 83. #ncisla #werk #wooork #wurk #seewhatididthere #ichangedthevowelinworktosoundhip #clever #superclever

Our boy @jakefedder didn't have room for a second pair of pants but he always has room for football. I coulda been a QB contender. #wanderlust @justinwine @hudsonbhawk @jakefedder @carlomondavi @sonsetpatrol @spoonsingh #uncleRICO
Sunrise run and gun. 100 years ago we woulda been badass bootleggers with a mustachioed sheriff hot on our trail. But now we're just moto hipsters looking for gluten free muffins and humanely raised water. #happinessisthejourney #wanderlust
Why does it look like we are about to drop the sickest mix tape of 1993?!? Thanks for the amazing weekend @justinwine and @officialtriumph. #happinessisthejourney #whostandsontheirbikelikeanidiot #thisguy
@distinguishedgentlemansride, @movember, and @officialtriumph raising almost 5 million dollars to tackle prostrate cancer, testicular cancer, men's mental health, and suicide prevention. Amazing charities with some salt of the earth good people. Thanks for letting me be an ambassador. It was a honor and a privilege. #dgr
