JettyGirl: A one million dollar check arrives in your mailbox with a note that reads, "Half of this amount is yours and the other half is to benefit the world around you." How would you spend the money?
Jeannie Chesser: First, I would take all my best friends that I surf with to Tavarua for a couple weeks, followed by a three week boat trip in Indo.  Then I would try to convince my landlord to sell me my house that I have been renting since '73.  The other half would go to help the homeless in Hawaii (the ones that are willing to help themselves, not the druggies and bums) and the rest would go to support Surfrider and the dolphins in the ocean.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Jeannie: My best surfboard is the one I have now from Eric Arakawa, a 5'8" quad.  My second best is my 8'6" stand-up from Jay Richardson from Makaha.

JG: If you could travel back to any time in history and hang with one person while they go about their daily activities, who would it be and why?
Jeannie: I would travel back in time to spend a day with my son, Todd, for obvious reasons.

JG: For thirty days you're stuck on a desert island with one book, one song, one surf movie and one snack food. Which ones would you choose?
Jeannie: The book would be something along the lines of survival skills or a learn a dozen languages book. Song: something from Maxwell. Five Summer Stories.  Popcorn because it is the lesser of evil snack foods.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Jeannie: Surf related memory for this year has to be when I was out paddling with the dolphins in clear water ...they went slow enough so I could keep up ...there were dozens of them, babies jumping, adults checking me out ...I was with them several times this year on my stand up when the waves were small in Town.  I am the dolphin whisperer.
