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!

A 30th anniversary screening of The Lost Boys kicks off the summer fun at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk
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).
