If there’s one thing that Pleasure Point is known for, it’s the well-deserved reputation as one of the best places to surf in Santa Cruz County. With multiple surf breaks that draw crowds from all over, both in the water and out of it, Pleasure Point is one of the ultimate places to soak up Santa Cruz surf culture. Part of the reason it’s such a renowned surfing destination are the great breaks around the Pleasure Point. There are several options in the area with 30th Avenue and the Hook being among the most famous. Of course, you can’t talk about Santa Cruz surf culture or Pleasure Point without mentioning the presence and contributions of Jack O’Neill (see below).
