OVERVIEW

The remarkable life story of Dewey Weber, surfing's first superstar.

It is the story of the dawn of the surf culture which began in Southern California in the 1950s and was quickly exported around the world through movies, popular music, styles of dress, and a new way of looking at life.

From Dewey Weber's charismatic ascent to the top of the burgeoning 1960s surf industry, to his freefall into alcoholism and financial ruin, "Little Man on Wheels" tells of his enduring impact on the California lifestyle he popularized worldwide and how his legend and the global surf culture endures.
