Watch: Alex Gray Tube Fest

This past winter, the coast of California received an unusual series of high pressure systems during the peak of its winter. These systems blocked all swell traveling down the coast of Southern California. Meanwhile, the Atlantic’s swell window was wide open with an endless series of big surf with stellar conditions. With hopes of scoring 7 days of surf, Alex Gray set off with a few custom Happy Step-ups on a one-way ticket overseas and as luck would have it, the hopes of seven days of surf turned into 5 swells over the course of four weeks.
The Edit is made by Scott Smith and filmed by Ari Frapwell, Bastien Bonnarme, and Amine Nader (of course Alex’ POV shots too). See our Happy Step-up here, and customize your Happy Step-up dims here.
