Surfing Pics - Santa Cruz, California 2005

These pictures were taken in Santa Cruz, California (,+CA,+USA&sa=X&oi=map&ct=title) . This is a cliff that runs perpendicular to the boardwalk and is just north of the pier. It is a great place to watch surfing because you can get close to the action. However, I have heard that this one of those "locals only" kind of place and it is hard to get into the line up if you want to surf. Which explains why I saw some others up further north where the waves were not as good.

On this day there were a bunch of photographers with professional equipment. My pictures were taken with a disposable camera. The top couple of pictures were taken by my Uncle using much better Nikon digital camera.

This is a picture of the Amusement Part taken from out on the pier. Not a bad place to send an afternoon. Just remember to bring a jacket or sweatshirt even in the summer. There are plenty of $20 jackets available for sale if you need something to keep you warm.
