About Steamer Lane

Steamer Lane is the most famous surf spot in Santa Cruz.

Located off a point on West Cliff Drive, Steamer Lane attracts big swells in the winter and quality surf throughout the year.

The cliffs provide a perfect vantage point to watch surfers and the nearby Santa Cruz Surfing Museum adds some local context with details on Jack O'Neill, who developed the modern wetsuit at Steamer, and other local luminaries.

Visiting and experienced surfers be warned, localism rules at this surf spot and the waves are treacherous with big swells.
