Random Happenings at Steamer Lane

Steamer Lane

Santa Cruz, California

Santa Cruz’s Steamer Lane, as we all know, is a world famous surf spot. Some love it, some hate it. For some it’s a proving ground, for others it’s their playground. It serves as a stadium with viewing areas and a playing field, stocked with fans, photographers and the athletes themselves. Over the past few days I’ve spent some time snapping photos at Steamer Lane- here are some of the random happenings…

Wilem Banks knows the wave like the back of his hand. After getting a turn or two in, the wave decided to close out and Wilem just continued along for the ride.

Miles Dreszer probably throwing the double bird because I’m where he would rather be. At least one of us got some cover up right?

The cliff at Steamer Lane offers up a unique vantage point allowing viewers to get up and close to the surfers, but watch where you stand, or you might get sprayed.
