Santa Cruz mixes Northern California ruggedness with classic surf culture. There’s surf history on every corner and a high-quality wave at the end of every street, headlined by the standout point break Steamer Lane. Hunter Jones and Lex Weinstein link up with local standout Noah “Waggy” Wegrich to surf the challenging and iconic wave, bestow the Saltiest Local award on a pioneer in the women’s surf scene, and of course, evaluate the town’s best post-surf meal on the Burrito-Meter. To round out their time in Santa Cruz, they visit the O’Neill factory and then meet Ashley Lloyd, a local shaper building boards with sustainable materials and helping restore the kelp forests around the area.
