    Santa Cruz is the birthplace of cold water surfing and home of the inventor of the wetsuit Jack O’Neill making this an appropriate destination for the final stop of the O’Neill Cold Water Classic series. This well documented city has long since been a hot spot for skateboarders, surfers and hippies alike....

    Long before ‘Dogtown And Z-Boys’, Santa Cruz was the place to skate and Kevin Reed was doing huge frontside airs at Soquel skatepark before anyone was doing airs. There are a lot of legendary skaters around there who took the surfing and skating thing and took it to the next level.
