Late night swim for some early Christmas presents #nightcrawlers
This December’s #agraysurftherapy grief group will be Saturday December 15th in Orange County. Please join Agraysurftherapy on Facebook for more details. Here is my brother Chris playing guitar and surfing during our Maui summer vacation circa 1998. I love watching these old vids of him. I love posting them to the world even more
Press play :) I’m honored to represent those lost or suffering through the grief of a loved one. I’m very thankful for the gift of the ocean Chris gave me. It has taken over my life with surfing. But most importantly became my place of peace thinking about him after his death. Our grief group is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I never wanted to do therapy. I ran from it. But today I find myself very happily gathering a group of incredible people. I think I just want everyone to know it’s okay and it’s going to be okay. Grief isn’t addressed properly in America. And while there’s no rule book on it, it needs to be a socially accepted aspect of our lives. The courage and strength of this family to share their journey inspires me beyond words. Thank you. You and your loved one/ones have changed all of our lives for the better :) Visit Agray Surf Therapy on Facebook if you feel you can benefit from our friendship. Thank you @_catalinav @spectrumnews1socal for hanging with us. Link in bio. #chrisgraylives #unspokenbond

I love this circle. When I first sat in it, I was scared and really nervous. I’ve spent a good portion of my life running from vulnerability. Instead I hid behind a wall where emotions weren’t let through. This group continues to change my life for the better. Facing a major loss in my life that trickled into areas I wished it never did. We hold a non-judgmental, safe, supportive space where all forms of grief are equal. There have been requests to move to new places with the group, so I’m headed to San Diego. I hope this will bring new members, and also provide a new place for existing. See you this this Saturday November 17th. Please join Agray Surf Therapy on Facebook or email me Alexgraysurf@gmail.com for more info. Thank you all for your support in person, as well as on this social media platform. Much love.
Much love to all affected by the Malibu fires. Thank you Paradise Cove for allowing me to come volunteer the past few days. Your community is amazing. Sorry for your loss. Hope the water transport was helpful. And hope everything is getting easier day by day. I covered 120 miles on my jetski over 3 days crossing the big South Bay pond from Redondo to the bu. And will do it again if ya guys need it! Please if you’re going to donate... GAS!
Thanks everyone. Great job again @divensurf!
Today’s view crossing Redondo to Paradise Cove. The people affected by the fires are still in it. I would like to applaude the paradise cove community. You resemble the meaning of a loving, supportive community. Really incredible seeing how tight knit you are with team work. And morale is high! I’m very sorry for all of your loss. It’s been an honor to represent our nook of the South Bay to help yours. 80 miles covered by jetski in two days. See you all again tomorrow. As for donations they could use at this point: Unleaded Gas, 2 stroke oil, lanterns, flashlights, 2 way radios, vegetables, fruit, almond milk, medical supplies... food bars, clothing, and water seem to be covered. Much love to all of you. Incredible job to everyone donating @divensurf.
Stoked to volunteer to help with @divensurf donation efforts towards the Malibu fire . Great job everyone with donations. If you are donating today... GAS and GENERATORS. Regular unleaded gas in 5 gallon drums is great. Small appropriate size generators. They need power, and gas for their cars. They have literally been syphoning gas from cars left behind. These are two things that are said more than anything from those affected. Also any tools. Shovels etc. Love to all. Great job @jamiemeistrell spearheading this.
