Greetings, Shredderz! I’m incredibly excited to announce the premier of “For Pleasure Only”, a film by Kyle Buthman featuring Darshan Gooch and Doug Haut.
To me this movie is an ode to Santa Cruz surf history. It’s a town with no shortage of notable surfing moments. In fact, California’s first introduction to surfing happened in Santa Cruz in the late 1800s, when three Hawaiian princes demonstrated the sport for the first time in mainland America.
Doug Haut is not only one of Santa Cruz’s best known shapers, 2023 also marks his sixtieth year building surfboards, which is an incredible achievement. “For Pleasure Only” features Darshan Gooch riding a beautiful 1967 Haut Bump model in their shared hometown of Santa Cruz, showing off timeless style in combination with some modern moves.
I hope you enjoy the film as much as I do!
