Pat Gudauskas //’s “The Beginnings” // 4:18

Last year, partnered with retailer Zumiez to give viewers a chance to create their own show. The winner, Ulysses Salcido, came up with his first effort titled “The Beginnings” featuring Vans surfer Pat Gudauskas and his first days as a grom learning the ropes from his dad. Listen to Pat’s endearing stories including his strengths, fears and a few (hilarious) vulnerable moments in this exclusive production.

If you liked The Beginnings with Pat, be sure to check him out in the latest Vans Surf film Get-N Classic, Vol. 2 along with the rest of our first-class surf team as they travel the world for the best surf and adventure. Watch the film in its entirety at
