Steamer Lane, The Lane, or just Steamers to locals, is the best area in Santa Cruz to watch surfers do what they do best. Steamer Lane has areas for all levels of surfing. Starting at the point nearest the rock and the lighthouse is for the best surfers. Near the beach in front of the hotels is the area for grommets (beginners in surf slang). In between those areas, people just have to see what they are comfortable with.On a great day, sometimes you can spot some pro surfers who live in Santa Cruz, such as Shawn "Barney" Barrons and others.
