The @cisurfboards #CIFishBeard I was riding in my previous video post. The board is 5’5”... Not sure the rest of the dimensions. I really enjoy the Channel Islands @futuresfins keel fin template (slide 2). I especially like the keel when the waves are a little bigger with some power. The biggest surprise with this board is how versatile it is. I’ve surfed it from fun waist high Mexico sand point breaks to overhead punchy Cloudbreak. Frontside, backside, turns, barrels, this baby goes. Surf photo (slide 3) @nickliotta
Introducing @cisurfboards new model model the #CIFishBeard!!! I can’t say I’ve ever had as much fun on this sand point break before. In fact I only rode this board for 3 months through summer, and had to hide it in the corner of my garage to stop I’ve always wanted to try a high performance fish. A board that still draws easy, long lines, but will fit in a tight pocket or kick the tail through a lip. Got a lot to learn about two keel fins, but dang is this board a blast. #cisurfboards and @parkercoffin absolutely nailed it with design. I hope you get to ride one very soon.

Thank you so much @cisurfboards @mike_walter for this 9’0” new model #ciPinkgun. It feels and looks amazing. I love the outline. Huge thanks to everyone involved in the process of a big board like this. I really appreciate all the extra love and effort. Can’t wait to ride it this winter.
Link in bio to full YouTube video. One of the highlights from a recent #agraysurftherapy grief group was having the legend @michaelgervais stop by. Mike has been a pinnacle guide to my personal and career successes. I’m so honored to share with you the way he speaks. His language is that of a guru, but it’s his passionate authenticity while speaking in the moment which is so captivating. During our session he dove deep into the meaning of “mindfulness”. Mike also gave us tools on how to practice in our everyday routine. Thank you Mike for volunteering your time and expertise to help us struggling during unfortunate loss. Please checkout his podcast Finding Mastery. @annie.graziano
As the new year begins, so do aspects end. Tough to hear @bodyglove is ending our 22 year relationship. But, I’m full of gratitude and happiness for everything the brand has provided me with all of these years. To be a part of a business for 22 years is a huge accomplishment, especially in the surf industry. That’s something I’m very proud of. Thank you to all the generations of Meistrell’s for your loyalty and support since day one. Thank you for sticking with me through all of my personal and career ups/downs. Thank you for giving me the best times of my life. It’s crazy to think that since I started surfing, I’ve never worn another wetsuit than a Body Glove. I’ve had such a fun time representing the brand. Although the real honor has been feeling part of the family. I want to wish the brand all the best with their new journey. Much love BG!
Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays everyone! Santa’s a regular foot... @scottsmithmedia #merrychristmas #happyholidays #santa

Really want to thank my coach @jimlindbergpw.
I believe the power of choice is one of life’s greatest tools always in our possession. Choice can change perspectives from dark to light with the flip of a switch. Please visit my website AlexGraySurf.com to watch a few of my recent school speeches. I hope they’re helpful. @annie.graziano #chrisgraylives

Thank you North Highschool for having me as the Vaping Prevention keynote speaker during parent night. I enjoyed the panel after sharing comments alongside a mental health therapist, emergency room doctor, police officer, student, and the dean of students. I applaud the Torrance Unified School District for their effort focused on the students well being addressing vaping and mental health.
