Few automakers are as synonymous with California car culture as Volkswagen, so when VW debuted its first fully electric vehicle, the VW ID.4, it was only a matter of time before the EV took the Golden State by storm. In Taking Charge, a new short-form series sponsored by VW, we explore a day in the life of two of the surfing world’s most recognized and respected competitors—Patrick Gudauskas and Bruna Zaun—and the myriad ways in which the all-electric VW ID.4 powers their everyday lives.
In her episode, Bruna makes a roundtrip journey from her house in Hermosa Beach to Encinitas to pick up a new board from local shaper Dominic Picone—with a pitstop at a farmer’s market in Oceanside. For his day with the VW ID.4 EV, Pat Gudauskas takes his family (wife and model Hanalei and son Canyon) to Topanga Beach for a surf session. The couple also swing by Motu, their eco-friendly San Clemente store, to pick up a few must-have items for their family beach day.
With its impressive range, spacious interior and tech-heavy features, the VW ID.4 EV is the perfect vehicle for active Californians like Bruna, Patrick and his family. To learn more about the all-electric VW ID.4, visit the VW site or test drive one at your local dealership.
