“Access is everything,” said Robert ‘Wingnut’ Weaver, who has starred in Bruce Brown’s movies and is a respected surfer and spokesman for the sport. “The future of extreme sports, and especially surfing films, is high-definition streams you can watch anytime, anywhere, and you’ll get plenty of that on Vaporvue. This is the most incredible collection of mind-blowing movies.”
