Hey Dibi what do you think about violence sex/nudity in films and TV? - Gerald Buttress

Do you ever just throw your hands up in the air like you just don’t care? - Max Carter

What is your favorite Herbie Fletcher surf film? Can you ask Christian and Nathan and Herbie what theres are to? Thanx! - Roger Truell
Dibi: I like pieces from a lot of different things Herb’s made in the past, we’ve done so many it’s really hard to pick just one.
So far nothing’s topping Nate’s big wave from last year. And I think he’ll be the only one in years to come to top that wave of his! Nathan charges!!!!!!!!!! Was he a fearless big wave rider as a kid? don’t remember that much about him being so in the early years.. - Pete Coulson
Dibi: Nathan went with Herb and Christian everywhere, and he always wanted to keep up. Great training for him to become fearless.
Hey so where are the pics of you dibi going down the street with baby nathan in diapers cruzing on a skateboard!! We know you have it, don’t hold out!
- Jim Rowe
Dibi: No, I did a lot of other things with them; like take them to the beach everyday. We had a great time, but I never had the skate expertise to want them on a board with me.
What is the wackiest thing you have ever been witness to? - Chris Thorson
Dibi: The list is so long I can’t begin to know where to start.
Christian’s logo is the ultimate. Does Nathan or did Nathan ever have a logo of his own? - Christopher Myers
Dibi: We did Think Fast for Nathan and had all sorts of cool logos.
Hey Dibi! Are you affiliated with any religion? - Bernard Wilkes
Dibi: I’m a firm believer that parts of my life should be honored by myself with privacy.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how blessed are you? - Richie Surfdude
Dibi: 10 for sure!
Do you think people should stop using the word “retard”? - Jon Sarkisian
Dibi: I think when most people say it, they are not trying to be offensive, but all words have become under strict scrutiny in our march towards political correctness. I think you should have the freedom to make your own choice.
Sooo since Dear Abby is now gone. Dibi??? Whatcha all think? - Kye Ledbetter
Dibi: What do you think??
Did the Hoffmans come up with the aloha print or just make it more mainstream? Am interested in the background/history of how it all started. Thank you. - Dan Simmons

Dibi: Pretty much an optimist. Although when tired - like everyone else -things look a bit grey.
Does Christian surf Lowers anymore? man that was his place he got it locked! But dont hear to much about him surfing there anymore!! - Brian Carper
Dibi:The bottom changed so the waves are no longer the same there, so he surfs it rarely.
Mrs. Fletcher you are SUCH an amazing artist! And Christian is so proud of you! What is your personal favorite style of art? What medium? - Nancy Bowmann
Dibi: Right now, I’m fully thrilled about architecture. I’d like to build a house that looks like a space ship and design all the furniture for it!!
What has been the most difficult thing being the mother of a famous rebellious pioneer surfer like Christian Fletcher?!?!!!!!! - Josh Brawley
Dibi: Being a mother to anyone is an awesome responsibility, playing a lot of it out in public certainly made parts of it more difficult.
Tell Herbie for the new WW film that there needs to be a segment with you doing your art and showing who’s boss! Lol amazing you are! - Danny Stinson
Dibi: That’s very funny!!
Come on! What’s the stall? What happened to the Fletcher Valentine family photo?? Was SO looking forward to it!
Those pics you guys do are the funniest sh*t EVER! - Lucas Nakamura
Dibi: That’s pretty funny, we just did the holiday photos because we personally got a kick out of them and thought it was a fun way to laugh at ourselves, and then when we didn’t do one, so many people wrote in about them, that we decided we’ll try to keep it going. A sense of humor is one of life’s greatest gifts.
LMAO! I love the humor you guys have! Now that being said, where can I order one of those amazing turtlenecks?
- Audrey S. Ellis
Dibi: That was funny. CF and Nathan get a little pissed sometimes, but what the heck, it’s all in fun.

Dibi: Yes, I think it’s an honest statement.
When do you think it’s not the right time to push the envelope or get extreme? - Jake Theroux
Dibi: I’m not quite sure I understand the question as it can be interpreted in so many different ways. It sounds as if you’re speaking of bad behavior, which is never the best or wisest course of action.
