Indicators in Santa Cruz is a sheltered point break that has quite reliable surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the east northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. Likely to be crowded if working. Take special care here if it gets very crowded.
