I wish they never changed from this era/generation. #ifyouknowyouknow #pennywise #badreligion @gregsworld @taylor_knox @donavon_frankenreiter @kellyslater @robmachado @shanedorian @jimlindbergpw P.s. where's #justinpostin?

a_gray I've been lucky to ride @cisurfboards for the last 13 years. Everytime I get I new board I'm happier than a slinky on an elevator! Thank you #cisurfboards for everything. Left to right:
#newflyer 5'5"x 18 7/8 x 2 3/16
#fredrubble 5'9"x 18 3/8 x 2 3/16 The new flyer is @sustainsurf "eco board". I'm proud to be an ambassador for them in working on a cleaner future with surfboard materials. Check them out. The Rubble has the new #cifins #madinusa which I've been loving. Now go surf everyone! #smilesfordays #turkeymelt

a_gray It's 2 am, and I just landed at LAX after 4 days chasing a swell in Mexico. I have a text from the most badass person I know asking to come to #fiji. That was an easy yes to answer! 15 hours later I'm on a flight with hopes of perfect #cloudbreak. The wildcard factor is there's a devastating cyclone hitting fiji in 3 days which could ruin all hopes of waves. I figure screw it, rather check it from the channel than have #FOMO! I land straight into this session with only 3 incredible other surfers out. It's moments like this that I could careless I haven't slept in 2 days due to travel, and am probably bankrupt haha. This is what I live for :) #turkeymelt photo @duncanm #halfnaked @tavaruaislandresort 4d

a_gray So this is happening!!!!!! My first time ever driving a #nascar #stockcar. I ran my ego over so many times I popped the tire!!! Hahaha. Today was a practice for @awalkonwater 's celebrity race on April 11th at #irwindaleraceway! A portion of tickets and merchandise sold will go to the foundation. Gate opens at 4pm and I will race at 7:30pm! That was one of the craziest feelings ever. Holy crap I want more speed baby!! Can't wait for the next practice :) #turkeymelt #shakeandbake @emiliorivera48 @nuttynulty 6d

a_gray #waybackwednesday 12 years old and my first time in a surf movie @bodyglove53's #thefamily. The goofyfoot was my best friend growing up, and partner in crime #travismellem. Travis would go on to win nationals, and sign the biggest contract in the world ever by a 17 year old. Sure wish he was on tour today. If anyone knows or sees Travis, please give him a hug and high five from me. I miss that guy! @nssasurf #turkeymelt 7d

a_gray Had a great time raising awareness with my favorite foundation ever @jimmymillerfoundation! The foundation carries on the life of Jimmy Miller. I can honestly say I would've never found surfing if it wasn't for Jimmy. When my brother Chris was 12, Jimmy taught him how to surf as his junior lifeguard instructor. That day changed my family's life forever. All my brother and I did from then on was try be Jimmy. We even grew our hair out and squeezed lemons in it to hopefully bleach it like jimmys hahaha. Jimmy became a brother to us. He took us on our first surf trip to Northern California, we slept at his house on the weekends, he taught me how to drive a manual car, my brother wore his stylish clothes to prom, the list goes on and on. A few months after my brother passed away in 2004, I lost Jimmy as well. That was the worst year of my life. I will forever credit Jimmy as the reason I'm a surfer today. In fact, I'll credit him as the person I'm still trying to be :) Thankfully the Miller family has created this non-profit which helps wounded warriors while carrying on Jimmy's name in the positive light that he was. Tonight, during the raffle, I spontaneously thought it would be cool to giveaway my @cisurfboards in the back of my car. I love moments like this when it goes to the right person. Look how stoked the kid is!!!! Please checkout the #jimmymillerfoundation and volunteer if you get a chance. Smiles for days!!!! #southbay #jimmymillerraisedme 1w

a_gray Had a great time this afternoon speaking to 150 eighth grade boys at #ridgecrest middle school in my hometown of #palosverdes. Funny thing is I used to skateboard everyday as a kid at this school when it was abandoned. A few months after my brother passed when I was 17, I had the urge to speak at my local highschool about its affect on me. 11 years later, and speaking to over 10 schools, it still means just as much to hopefully affect 1 person through this journey. Giving advice how to positively move forward from the worst thing in my life (losing my brother to a drug overdose) fills my heart with hope and happiness. I also find it fun talking about following your passion through sacrifices and not caring about others thoughts and judgements along the way. Staying away from drugs is a topic, as it's what took my brothers life. And let's be honest, knowing the severity of drug use is important going into Highschool. "Choices" was a big topic today. We have the choice to do and be anything we want in life. I remember how big peer-pressure was at these kids age. I hope they make the choice to always be themselves, follow their dreams, and walk away from a situation when their instinct doesn't feel right. And above all have FUN! Our life is too short to not always enjoy along the way. The best part of today was meeting and signing a @volcom poster for every student after. Thank you to all the students for listening and asking questions after. I had a blast :) and thanks to mom and dad for coming! #turkeymelt #forthekids #southbay 2w

  •   leemonplur i can relate to losing a brother i lost an older brother 2 years ago in a car accident. one of the hardest things ive had to go through. your speech that you made at my school really made me think about what i wanted to do with my life. i shouldnt just mop around have people feel sorry for myself i should just do what i love to do and know hes not there physically but hes there spiritually thank you so much man. 2w
