Live and In-Person: 2022 Swellies!

We had an amazing time celebrating with you at the 6th Annual Swellies Awards! At Santa Cruz Waves we believe that Santa Cruz would be nothing without all of our incredible local businesses. The Swellies Awards is our way of celebrating the incredible businesses and people of Santa Cruz! This year we all dressed up real nice and enjoyed live entertainment from one of our SWELLIES favorite local bands, Superblume! We enjoyed libations from Front & Cooper, Humble Sea and Bargetto Winery, and food from Aptos St. BBQ, Goodles Noodles, and Pana Food Truck!

Special thanks to all the businesses that donated to our raffle! Chardonnay Sailing, Pacific Wave, Hatton’s Social Club, EyeQ, Streetlight Records, Moe’s Alley, Dig Gardens, Flower Shack, Bella Dawna Esthetics, Aptos St. BBQ, Goodle’s Noodles, Alison Gamel Photography, O’Neill, Pana Food Truck, Bookshop Santa Cruz, Richard Schmidt Surf School, Fuel Phitness, Santa Cruz Cycle Sport, and more.
