You couldn’t stop #teamshaka’s fun during my first #agraysurfexperience to @astadventures El Salvador. Thank you @kantisc @barryassadi @itowakefield @ihatetables for making the trip so memorable. I really enjoyed surfing with everyone while talking about technique, timing, lineup, and equipment advice. It was rad to see everyone taking their surfing progressively to a higher level each day. Shoutout to Mike Nulty @nuttynulty providing the filming during each session and the evening’s video review. Vibes were all time. Stay up to date for the next experience at Alexgraysurf.com.

To the greatest dad of all time: #happyfathersday. Thank you for providing Chris and me with everything sons can dream of. Love you.
Best party wave of my life! What an honor from @operationsurf to take double amputee veteran Travis for a surf. Travis you charge! These men and women’s determination, courage, and motivation is contagious. Thank you for your service, and allowing me to partake in a huge learning experience. It’s amazing how surfing can bridge a gap between worlds. Well done Operation Surf. To all the vets and volunteers: You’re all heroes. @dannynichols13 @vancuraza
On World Oceans Day today we celebrate and honor the ocean which connects us all. I participated in helping build a lifeguard tower made of 100% plastic waste and foam dust from @cisurfboards factory.
With ByBlocks, made by the folks at @_byfusion_, they can take 100% of plastic waste and shape it into a cinderblock-like form material that doesn’t crack or crumble like concrete blocks—and it has superior thermal and sound insulation. I love the idea of not having to use chemicals or heat to break down and “recycle" discarded plastic.
In addition to building this tower, there was a beach clean-up with @healthebay. Overall this was a really great morning to get together and celebrate a way to repurpose some of the 8.3 billion tons of plastic in the world today. Go to www.byfusion.com to learn more and as always do whatever you can to minimize single use plastics.

One of my favorite feelings is to check all my speed anticipating an extension into the barrel section. The @cisurfboards #cihappy let me push its capabilities of drive off the bottom turn. I friggin love these moments. Mindless while playing with the feel of your board and the curve of the wave. Can’t curb this addiction. @chris_ramirez_photo #steelydan #kings @puntaconejoresort
Link to sign up in bio. Please join us Saturday June 1st in Los Angeles to move through grief with surfing therapy! We honor all aspects of grief. While surfing isn’t mandatory, it has provided so much clarity, freedom, and happiness during my journey with grief. We are happy to provide beginners surf equipment and instruction if you don’t have any. Nothing makes me more fulfilled than to see Mother Nature doing its healing on us struggling over the loss of a loved one. You are not alone with our community of 400 members. Join Agray Surf Therapy on Facebook for event details and exact location. If you’re not on Facebook, sign up at Alexgraysurf.com
See you there! #agraysurftherapy #alexgraysurfexperience @owendubeck @livingonone
Happy 36th birthday Chris! We watched home movies recently and I was reminded how much better a surfer you are than me I believe you’re 16 in the surf clip. We loved watching these videos of you opening presents from your childhood birthdays. I stand grateful Chris for all you were and continue to be in my life. Love you. Headed for a surf now to celebrate you. #chrisgraylives @lgray54
