Good-humored neoclassic longboarder from Santa Cruz, California; best known as a costar in the 1994 surf movie Endless Summer II. Weaver was born (1965) in Cologne, Germany; moved with his family at age three to Newport Beach, California, began surfing in 1982 at age 16, and for reasons never made clear was dubbed “Wingnut” by a group of older Newport locals. Alone among his teenage peers, Weaver was a longboard-only surfer from the beginning.
