Santa Cruz Waves

Since 2014, Santa Cruz Waves has delivered a high-quality publication jam-packed with inspirational journalism, jaw-dropping imagery and local advertising that helps act as a guide for both visitors and locals alike.

In April 2023, we made the hard decision to halt production of our print magazine.

The Magazine

Our bi-monthly magazine features local legends, events, environmental stories, eats & drinks, opinion pieces, amazing photographery, and so much more!
