This place is pure magic when the waves are breaking. The visual is just stunning. I've never actually surfed in Steamer Lane but I watched a WQS event there in 2009 and the waves were just insane, 10+ ft. Beautiful and scary at the same time.Recommended for:

Great place to catch some live surf action. The "Lane" plays host to national contests like the "(insert sponsor's name here ) Cold Water Classic", but you can see some fun take offs from the slot, middle peak, and indicators. Located along West Cliff Drive you can also enjoy panoramic views of beautiful California coastline while on a bike, blades, or foot. Bring a camera and a sweatshirt.

Steamer Lane is a famous surfing location in Santa Cruz with great waves, but not for beginners.
For those who don´t surf, in a walking tour of West Cliff Dr. Steamer Lane is overseen by a towering bronze statue of a man standing with his surfboard You´ll also have great view of the Santa Cruz Wharf, Boardwalk, Monterey Bay.

This is one of the best surf breaks in California. If you are a surfer paddle out with care, as it is localized. If you just want to watch pros doing aerials there is great viewing from the cliffs above.
