World Surfing Reserves and the Santa Cruz Local Stewardship Council (LSC) and Ambassadors are pleased to announce that the official dedication of Santa Cruz as the fourth World Surfing Reserve will be held on April 27th and 28th.

We will be hosting a night of music, drinks, art, and surf history/culture at an evening fundraiser celebration on Friday, April 27th, and all proceeds will go towards the Santa Cruz LSC to continue the stewardship of the Reserve. On Saturday, April 28th, the Santa Cruz World Surfing Reserve will be officially enshrined with a morning paddle out at Pleasure Point at 10am, followed by the dedication ceremony at Steamer Lane at 1pm.

Join us and meet the LSC members: Hilary Bryant, Jane McKenzie, Mark Stone, John Leopold, Dan Young, Brian Kilpatrick, Dustin Macdonald, and Jim Littlefield and the SCWSR Ambassadors: Robert "Wingnut" Weaver, Kyle Thiermann, Sarah Gerhardt, Jamilah Star, and Ken "Skindog" Collins.
