a_gray Happy #memorialday. That's my grandpa Dudley Gray on the top right. At this moment in time he was a 21 year old farmboy from Iowa. He joined the Navy as a signalman in 1943 on the minesweeper Oracle. The Oracle was in the Aleutian Islands before heading central pacific to Pearl Harbor, Marshall islands, Majuro, Kwajalein, Guam, Saipan, and Okinawa. Crazy to think decades later I'd be surfing in the same places he was minesweeping such as the #aleutianislands and P-pass near the Marshall Islands. I'm extremely grateful to have had a loving, badass grandpa who served so we can live this incredible life today. #dudleygrayisaboss @lgray54 5d
  •   a_gray Thanks! @teddyboyd 5d
  •   sustainsurf You're the spitting image, no doubt.... Good story. 5d
  •   haole2themax He is an attorney right? 5d
  •   mattmcmahon My grandfather was lost in a sub off the Aleutians, island of Kiska. Not sure exactly where you surfed (saw the pics; epic) but Kiska was only US soil occupied by Japanese during the war. Sub was lost for almost 70 years, found by deep sea ROV a few years back. Google USS Grunion if curious. Cheers. #johnmertonmcmahonwasabosstoo 4d
  •   a_gray @mattmcmahon fuck yes to u! Best comment I've ever had on Instagram. Thank u for sharing. This sub stated in atka. I'm so so so sorry your grandfather didn't return. He's a legend. And u know it. I was beyond lucky my grandpa came home and showed me the meaning of a grandparents love. U are an awesome human. Thank u for sharing! Long live ur grandpa !!!! 4d
  •   j__martino @a_gray @mattmcmahon God bless both of your families for their sacrifices in keeping America the Land of the Free, and clearly Home of the Brave. 4d
  •   margaeux15 @josephina4 hey.. 4d
  •   mattmcmahon Appreciate the kind words, Alex, stoked you read and respond. And stoked (and a bit jealous) you were able to check out the Aleutians. Seems like a nuts piece of sea. 4d

a_gray #happybirthday to the best big brother I could've ever asked for! Splitting a peak like this with you is something I will cherish forever. Thank you Chris for passing on everything that you are and always will be. You continue to be my biggest inspiration and motivator. It takes a special person's spirit to carry on and positively affect people's lives while not physically being with us anymore. I recognize that's exactly what you are doing, and realize that you are the greatest of all time. I know you didn't mean to leave us, but I want you to know it's okay and you will never be forgotten! I love you, miss you, and can't wait to ride a few waves with you today :) #chrisgraylives #brother #thankful 6d

a_gray This is why I will stand up for the future generations the rest of my life. Magnus, a local 9 year old skateboarder, wore his heart on his sleeve in front of city council tonight. You are a gift to the world my little big man!!! That was the most courageous thing I've seen a young man do. #RanchoPalosVerdes will NOT be issuing a city wide skateboard ban. They will only be banning a couple very dangerous streets which I'm okay with. Thank you so much to everyone who supported tonight. Never been more proud of our community. #magnus4president #skateparkpv #southbay #palosverdes #courage @gurlif 1w
  •   grahamgarner @steveoralph I grew up in PV and my parents let me build a quarter pipe. There are numerous plans online you can follow. 4 ft would be a good starter height, It would be a great project for you to do with Magnus. By popular demand two more ramps and a few rails were eventually added. Also want to mention this didn't stop my friends and I from bombing "unsafe" hills pretty much every single day. When you're a kid nothing is unsafe nor can a parent watch over you 24/7 just make sure he has that helmet on as it saved my life a few times. 1w
  •   grahamgarner Nothing feels* unsafe 1w
  •   steveoralph @grahamgarner thanks for the advice. Looking forward to the time building the ramp together with Magnus as much as I am riding it with him. 1w
  •   __natalie.s__ Give Magnus a damn medal! :) 5d
  •   bornwilde Magnus! This cousin is very proud of you, not just for standing up for skateboarding. I can't ride. But I'm proud of you for being an excellent person. We loved having you hang with us for a few days a year and a half ago. You're a great young man! Your belief in yourself, the love you have for your family, and your passion for life are inspiring! 4d

a_gray #politics: if it's not one thing, it's another! What was originally planned as a #skateparkpv council meeting, has now changed to a proposed city wide ban of skateboarding by #RanchoPalosVerdes city council! Are u kidding me?! Yes, that means skateboarding will become illegal at any public structure in #RPV. Please join me tomorrow night, May 19th, 6:30 pm at City council: Hesse Park 29301 Hawthorne Blvd
Rancho Palos Verdes‎ CA‎ 90275.
There will be one minute allocated per person to publicly speak. Let's be a positive help in changing the minds of the council!!!! #southbay #palosverdes @BlainBailey13 @maxmoilaren @molzzzzzz @brycelw @ccoralreef @barrett_w @jwendelc
