About Santa Cruz
In July of 1885, a trio of Hawaiian princes descended upon the shores of the American
mainland. They ventured into the Santa Cruz Mountains and brought back Redwood
trees, which they used to create surfboards in the shape of the historic Hawaiian
longboards. Thus surfing was introduced the mainland and Santa Cruz has ever since
been known as Surf City, USA.
Along the way Doug Haut began hand shaping some boards of his own. During the
1970’s Haut honed his skills as a builder of both surfboards, and through
a series of unlikely events, skateboards as well. Doug had everyone in Santa Cruz
pumped about his custom boards and soon there was a company founded under the
same name. The brand flourished with a dedicated following, and soon the technology
emerged to craft advanced composite surfboards, which was when Haut jumped at
the opportunity to develop his line of surfboards with the innovative Powerlyte.
What begins with professional riders and shapers collaborating on board designs
naturally flows into countless hours of testing prototypes at some of the best
breaks in the world. The Santa Cruz team now also consists of pros from Hawaii,
Australia and Brazil, and they all maintain the belief that Powerlyte technology
is the key to creating better surfboards for each and every kind of rider.
Growing as a surfer is what spending time mixing it up with the waves is all about.
