Have you ever wanted to surf Baja, Mexico? What about surfing with 6-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore and endless summer chaser, Dave Rastovich? Now you can through this immersive virtual reality experience captured on location while filming TGR's new surf film, Proximity.

"You're engulfed, you're there physically and you'll feel like you're there with us." The Proximity project has been a multi-media experience including a full-length film, VR experience, photo book, and art gallery.
