Alex Gray is one funny human being. But he’s also ridden some of the biggest waves in the world. It doesn’t make sense when you meet him. A hilarious, fun-loving dude from Palos Verdes, California who was groomed like many other California surf kids competing and rising the ranks: and then all of a sudden he’s surfing waves that have names like Jaws and Ghost Tree. He’s known to belt out playful songs at the top of his lungs in lineups across the world — even more so when it’s huge and scary.
Alex has also developed his own social media storm by uploading hilarious videos alongside his global big-wave surf hunts. It’s called Turkey Melt and it’s well into the millions of views.
Always easy to convince when it comes to barrel riding, Alex was always putting on a show during our tequila-fueled trip to Mexico.
