The (somesay) surf capital of the world, home of O’Neil - Santa Cruz.
This is actually pretty much what we saw besides a bit of the town center, for lunch cos we were super behind time in getting to LA. It reminds me of what places like Interlaken, Switzerland and Queenstown, NZ would be like in winter - people wearing wetsuits around town, grabbing lunch and hitting the waves after, just like people wearing ski/boarding pants and oversized skijackets and boarding boots, etc walking around town getting burgers and pretty much living in their snowgear.
We’ll be back! There’s apparently alot we didn’t see while we were there.
