  • Santa Cruz boasts 11—count 'em—11 surf breaks.
  • The Santa Cruz Surfing Museum at Steamer Lane features photographs, surfboards, and other exhibits of the area's 100-year surfing history.
Wear your thickest skin to Steamer Lane. Apparently locals forget to drop the "tude" at the water's edge. Their reputation may contradict the laid-back California lifestyle, but what Steamer surfers lack in charm they most definitely make up for in skill.
