My Weekend in Santa Cruz - A Tribute to Jack O'Neill

FullSizeRender (95) 
Santa Cruz and the surfing world has no doubt lost a legend with the passing of wetsuit pioneer, Jack O'Neill. Locals, visitors, and the surfing community as a whole, have been showing their love and respect for Jack, and this Sunday, July 9, a memorial paddle out will take place in his honor. The Jack O'Neill Memorial Paddle Out will be held near Jack's home and favorite beach, Pleasure Point, at 11am. Those who will be participating in the paddle out are encouraged to arrive an hour early and parking will be very limited. We hope to see you there and stand (or paddle) beside you on this day where we celebrate the life and legacy of Jack O'Neill!

While hot new rides and frozen treats fill summer days at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Evening movies and concerts enliven Main Beach with free performances by bands such as Los Lobos and Quiet Riot, and outdoor screenings of classic movies including Grease and Ghostbusters. Plus, this year marks the 30th anniversary of The Lost Boys, the classic teen vamp flick filmed in Santa Cruz, and we’re celebrating with a special screening, free movie location map, and an Instagram contest (thru June 14th).

For us, seasonal pairings are a given: fall and pumpkins, winter and snowmen, spring and wildflowers, and summer and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Right now, kids are measuring themselves to see if they’re finally tall enough to ride the Giant Dipper roller coaster, and adults are budgeting dietary allowances for the promise of corn dogs and funnel cakes. The Boardwalk did some prepping for the new season, too, with a whopping $14 million worth of new rides, updated attractions, and cool enhancements. Here’s a peek of what new fun the Boardwalk has in store for 2017.
