Last June, we were two cooking students, working all day in restaurants and trying to make a career together. It took some time for us to realize we were not truly happy, even if we loved each other. We were passionate about food but wanted to learn about it differently, away from restaurants and closer to nature.
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. You can follow the filmmaker’s #thatvanagain project here and here.
