About Santa Cruz Waves

Santa Cruz Waves is a cornerstone of the Santa Cruz experience. Since 2014, Santa Cruz Waves has delivered a free, 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 the past couple years, Santa Cruz Waves, like many local businesses, has struggled to make ends meet. While we have always been able to work symbiotically with local businesses to help us cover printing and production costs, many of our amazing advertisers are also feeling the financial burden of recent times, which has had a direct impact on our bottom line.

Santa Cruz Waves is on the brink of some exciting changes. We are striving to evolve and diversify our content to better serve this region. We also have a website redesign in the works and hope to continue holding epic in-person events that celebrate and elevate the people and businesses within our community. To keep the wheels turning and the stories flowing, we could really use your help! We are honored and grateful for all the support and dedication over the years and hope you'll stick with us and consider supporting us now to get us through these choppy waters.

For just $5 a month — the price of a cup of coffee — you can help keep Santa Cruz Waves rolling to shores near you!
