Details: 18 ft. bronze sculpture by Tom Marsh; the base by Brian Curtis, dedicated May 23, 1992, Lighthouse Point
I recently traveled home for an over due visit. Faces have changed, grown and moved on. However, monuments such as the surfer statue still remain the same. As local spot for O’Neil surf competitions and other community events, West Cliff Drive also serves those who pass by with a view of unparalleled beauties of our Pacific Coast and a breathe of fresh ocean air.
A bitter-sweet trip was rewarded with the opportunity to capture with a locals perspective. Thank you Santa Cruz for one of the most enjoyable visits since I have moved away. Cheers!
Please stay tuned for more Santa Cruz Blog Posts. Plenty more to come.
