Peter Mel and the boys dropped in on some of the biggest waves of the decade on the Arrow model for the film. Actor Gerard Butler, new to the sport, nearly drowned after being held down by a rogue wave. 6 EPIC RED cameras were lost in the process. Watch the behind-the-scenes in “Making Mavericks”:
Doug Haut was inducted into the International Surfbuilders’ Hall of Fame in 2012, and has been shaping boards for over a half century. Few outside Santa Cruz know the illustrious story of one of the best surfer-surfboard shapers to emerge from California. He could have built a career out of his surfing accomplishments: charging Sunset Beach in the 60’s, being an invitee to the prestigious Duke Kahanamoku contest, and five decades of riding Steamer Lane.
However, Haut has continually avoided the limelight and focused on the duties at hand. Shaping and designing some of the most sought after surfboards in the Norcal scene. With over forty years of experience shaping surfboards Haut is a master of all types: short boards, long boards, hybrids, guns and wind surf boards.
