26th ave. has always been one of my favorite beaches, growing up i spent many weekends here and between the lagoon watching the wildlife or hitting the shore-break i was never disappointed. 26th I would say is one of Santa Cruz’s most incredible places to bring the family and friends for surfing, bonfires, parties, wildlife viewing, watching the sunset and really any other activity you can enjoy at the beach. One thing that makes 26th so special is that it offers a few places for surfers to ride good feeling swells up and down the beach. This prized east cliff gem also offers some incredible shore break waves for photographers with an ocean minded perspective to really capture some incredible images, not to mention, those savvy to the skim-boarding realm are always rewarded here. The sunset was absolutely beyond breathtaking and blessed me with far more than i could have wished for.
