About us

The Mission of the Santa Cruz Longboard Union is to preserve, promote and perpetuate the values, belief and essence of surfing.



Founded 1981, the SCLU is a not-for-profit surf club. The SCLU is a proud member of the The Coalition of Surfing Clubs (CSC), an international organization that represents the interests of surfing clubs throughout California and the world. 


Membership to the SCLU is by invitation only. In order to join the club, you must be sponsored by a current member in good standing. Prospective members must attend three club meetings and contribute volunteer hours to the club. Prospective member votes are held quarterly.

Meetings and Membership


Due to COVID-19, the club is currently meeting virtually via Zoom the first Wednesday of every month. Check your email for details!

The SCLU meets the first Wednesday of each month, at El Palomar Restaurant in Downtown Santa Cruz (unless otherwise posted).

Grab some snacks from the Taco Bar, and gather together in the banquet room for social hour at 6:30pm. Meeting begins at 7:00pm.

For more information about club activities, contact santacruzlongboardunion@gmail.com


All active, dues-paid members in 2020 will be automatically rolled into their same membership category for 2021 without dues for 2021!  The board decided this was the right thing to do since 2020 offered such limited activity for SCLU--no contests, no in-person meetings, no parties, etc.  Thanks to all of you active members in 2020 for supporting your club.  We look forward to welcoming several new members in 2021, including several that have been on the prospective member list for some time.  And, of course, if you weren't an active member in 2020 but you have been in the past, all it takes is paying your dues and you're "in" again!
