Bio: By the way Alex Gray charges, you’d think his middle name is Danger. Waking up the sleepy town of Palos Verdes, California when he entered the world in ’86, Alexander Wisdom Gray went from womb to tube in only a matter of years. Seen at just about every contest up and down the California coast during his youth, Gray gained notoriety quickly, winning trophies and hearts along the way. Breaking away from competitive surfing to focus on filming and editorial coverage, Gray’s name has become synonymous with several terms; big wave hellman, diver, nudist, and comedian being amongst them. With a sack full of fearlessness, look for Alex to continue collecting acknowledgments, like the 2011 Surfer Poll Best Barrel of The Year for a ridiculous backside mutant at Teahupoo.
He also runs one of the best blogs in action sports, turkeymelt.com, where he showcases his unrivaled work ethic and talents in Tahiti, Hawaii, Fiji, and beyond. You can also catch him in a staring role in Body Glove’s “Live From The Moon.” And if that’s not enough, just look for him at a house party near you.
