Afternoon Cloudbreak memory from the most epic of time @tavaruaislandresort. Thanks @nickliotta trying to catchup to @dane_ward @tristan_sully w/cloudy posts but failing... #tavarua
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. If you’d like to inquire having me speak at your school please visit Alexgraysurf.com/speaking

Thank you so much @ktla5news @markmester for continuing the conversation of vaping prevention and mental health. So stoked to be on the show today!!!!
Wow what a fun way to end our @southbayfamiliesconnected vaping prevention and mental health tour with the cover of @easyreadernews! Link in bio for full article. It has been an absolute honor to stand in front of about 8,000 students at 10 elementary, middle, and high schools over the past month. I couldn’t think of a better way to reach the youth of my hometown #southbay. Thank you Laura McIntire for making these opportunities all possible. Visit her website southbayfamiliesconnected.org for the real vaping facts and resources to help. It’s been a pleasure to work with you Laura. My speech really encompasses all aspects of my life as well. I’m finally at peace with pieces of the past which I built walls around not allowing others into. Speaking on these aspects of my darkest struggles in front of teenage strangers is a personal challenge. But I love the vulnerability it. Each speech forces me to continue growing into the walk of my talk. I love to provide ways to the keys for doors we were always meant to open. Advice such as following your passion instead of falling into traps of vaping, substance abuse, social media, and everything else that’s wrong in the world right now! So thank you to all the students for listening. Thank you to the faculties for the support. I appreciate you all. Please email me Alexgraysurf@gmail.com for speaking inquiries. I’d love speak to you! #chrisgraylives Special thanks to Mark McDermott for the amazing article.
It felt great to get amongst the Huntington Beach community today. Thank you @huntington.christian.school for the opportunity to speak with your middle school students. I really enjoyed the bonus afterwards hanging out with your leadership group. You’re all doing great work :) Live your dream!
Thank you so much @intlsurftherapyorg for having me to the surf therapy symposium. It was so great to meet everyone driven by a passion from the ocean to help others. I’m excited to see where you continue taking it into the future. @ccernik (special thanks @kprimacio
And off to your left... Had my first sunset experience flying back home from tonight’s lesson. Totally different experience flying a plane than all these years surfing into the dark.. Thanks to my instructor @keith_nichols for the grand ol’ time.
Today I had the privilege to #standwithrayden. @thebigpygmy @ajbuckley gave me and @zerodisplacement the huge honor to take Rayden and his brother Brock surfing for the first time. In fact this is the first time Rayden and his family had ever seen the ocean. Rayden was delt the lowest level of humanity being bullied at school. AJ and Justin are providing a dream trip to California surrounding Rayden with loving people and incredible experiences. All of you are amazing. It’s an honor to call you my friend Rayden. I’ll take you surfing again any day, and bring your brother. I love you dude. Thank you for sharing your journey with me and the world. You are a hero for helping others with the hardest moments of your life. You’re not alone, ever. I’ll stand with, and for you everyday!
