Does anybody out there know of a surf school in Santa Cruz with a knowledgeable instructor, preferably a professional surfer that's willing to teach beginners???

Hey, what's up? I have lived here in Santa Cruz for twenty years and never learned how to surf before last year. I have paid for countless surf lessons and never even got to my feet in any of them. I blamed it all on myself, until I met Marcel. Marcel is the best surf instructor I've ever had in my life, he got me up and riding in less than one hour!! I recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to surf or who wants to improve their surfing. Go to www.marcelsoros.com for more information. Good Luck to ya!!

Travel Tips for Santa Cruz

You must check out the Long...

by Dink-RJT

You must check out the Long Marine Lab operating by USCS. they have wonderful exhibits on marine life. It is an training facility that gives tours. They have lots of sea life from the Monterey Bay area, touch tanks, aquariums, dolphins, seal lions and even an elephant seal. It is very reasonably priced. The beach and the ocean.

UCSC -- see the Trespassing Tree Sitters!

by Ewingjr98

The University of California at Santa Cruz is known for many things: it has a beautiful 2,001 acre school filled with redwoods and a stellar view over the Monterey Bay, it has a diverse student population of some 15,000 people from all walks of life, its degrees in 61 majors and 32 graduate programs, and a nationally ranked educational program.

Unfortunately its political activism often overshadows any academic accomplishment. UCSC is currently making the news (Fall 2007-Summer 2008) because of its "trespassing tree sitters" who have been living in a grove of redwoods near the physical sciences building since fall of 2007. This group is protesting the planned cutting of a small stand of trees necessary to expand the university. Think these trees might be the largest group of trees on campus, or some outstanding specimen of redwood in California? Nah, this campus has thousands of redwoods all over the upper reaches of campus. In fact the school has preserved so many of these trees since it opened in 1961 that roads are too narrow and congested for all the cars and students.

The same people who are protesting the expansion of the university will probably protest the lack of affordable educational opportunities for Americans in the near future. Soon after that these protesters will certainly be complaining about the lack of health care for these poor uneducated, unemployed souls who are being discriminated against because they can't afford medical care. Its a never ending cycle...

If you want to see the "trespassing tree sitters" first hand, enter the university campus at its main entrance off Bay Street. Take Coolidge Drive or Hagar Drive up the hill towards the main campus. Take a left on McLaughlin and watch for the sign for the physical sciences building. The protesters are in a tree in the small parking lot next to this building. The area is surrounded by signs warning people to watch for falling objects and to obey the court order and stop providing help to these protesters. Once here, look far up in the trees and see the ghetto boards and tarp suspended way up in the tress.

Moss Landing, CA

by tvdandy

If you want a nice two hour site seeing getaway, full of small town charm, try Moss Landing, CA. This town is a unique fishing village with a loaded boat dock and a cute downtown with quaint antique stores and cool artistic signs. Nice way to take a morning stroll or grab lunch in one of the local eateries. Why not rent a fishing boat and lie about the one that got away.
Heading south on Highway 1 from Santa Cruz, the town is about 15 miles outside the city. Just follow the exit signs.

Popular local spot

by trvlrtom about Walnut Avenue Cafe

The Walnut Avenue Cafe has been here since 1994 and is a popular as ever. It is great for breakfast or lunch, with original and creative menu offerings along with more simple fare. Never boring. The cafe has even been reviewed by Sunset Magazine and the NY Times!

Their Coffee Cake is to Die For!

by Kiisu about Hobee's

Hobee's is great for breakfast (lunch too)! The original site opened in Mountain View, and there's several locations now. The one in Cupertino, Mt. View, and Santa Cruz are all worthwhile. Their blueberry coffee cake is awesome! Also, the Hi-Hat Hash Browns or Hi-Hat Ommi are great breakfast items!
