The Matt Gray Memorial is a celebration of life and community love. The event is the only one of its kind that mixes skating and surfing into one contest. The skate event was held on Friday, April 11th at the Atlantic Beach Skate Park and drew more than 30 registered skaters and over 200 spectators. With a great community atmosphere, skaters from all over the beach ranging from 6 years old to 40 competed in front of a huge crowd that cheered them on all night. The surf contest was held at 19th Street in Atlantic Beach on Saturday, April 12th. The entire event brought in close to $4,000 which was raised through the events entry fee and money raised through the raffle. All proceeds go towards a scholarship in Matt Gray’s honor to a Senior at Fletcher High School. Last year, Marshall LaFrance and Jake McGuire each won $1,500 scholarships for their future college endeavors. ALL PHOTOS: JIM WALKER

Ryan “Turtle” Briggs

Ryan Briggs stays dormant for weeks, sometimes months and then out of no where comes out with an insane edit. We have marked him as the turtle from now on. By the time you are viewing this Ryan will be off again filming in his small remote locations he calls his turtle home.

“Not so solitary arrangement”

So the Thompson tribe just posted a new video through there Vimeo account and the title is Solitary Arrangement. It’s a smear of clips from a spot in North FL that has been anything but solitary lately. The spot has been blow out by UNFer’s, Mel-B crew and other southern entities all swarming on its fun little punchy peaks. We have had a good run of swell this spring and the Thompson brothers have been all over it. Spinning his board through the air is Tristan, Cody performs his trademarked alley oops, and the brother with no main sponsor logo who is smashing, carving and boosting all over the place is middle brother Evan. It’s a good indicator of how bad the surf industry is doing when somebody who surfs as good as Evan, is as well rounded as him, and has such a good head on his shoulders as he does, can’t even get a sponsor? Shame on all the big 5’s, you know who you are (QuikBongHurlComNei’ll) for not stepping up and getting behind a kid who deserves it as much as anybody else. Unfortunately the powers that be, the ones who run these companies and ran this industry into its current state, are too busy focusing on saving their necks and staying above water to really promote the future of surfing. Enjoy this clip and be happy that the best part of surfing, the joy you get from riding a wave, can never be diluted or destroyed by anything. Here’s to Evan and the rest of the tribe! Keep doing what you guys are doing and good things will happen.
