Filmmakers Tony Cruz, Scott Erickson, and Brett Kirkpatrick share a passion for surfing, VW vans, and storytelling. They have teamed up to capture unique stories that embody the independent spirit of surf and van culture. Their first video profiles Rich Kimball, a VW enthusiast and lifelong surfer who created Big Wednesday–a day to skip work, hop in your VW and hit the waves.
