When most people think of Santa Cruz visions of big and cold Steamer Lane pop into their heads, but the reality of the NorCal surf town is that it’s pretty damn good on a summertime south swell. You won’t see dudes in trunks but there are ramps galore and plenty of talented local surfers to take advantage of them.
