The current exhibition at UC Santa Cruz, Crochet Coral Reef: CO2CA CO2LA Ocean, features immense sculptural crochet “coral forests”, delicate “podwords”, and a monstrous undersea ceiling made of trash (the “Mitten”).
In conjunction with the show, the university is collaborating with the local community in a public art project to create a UC Santa Cruz Satellite Reef. This latest addition to an ever-evolving wooly archipelago of crochet reefs worldwide will be exhibited at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center beginning May 4, 2017.

The Santa Cruz Derby Girls will be opening the 2017 season at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium on March 11th. Santa Cruz’s All-Stars, the Boardwalk Bombshells, will be battling it out versus Bay Area Derby’s Berkeley Resistance. The Bombshells suffered a brutal loss to Berkeley in 2015, losing 150-196. Since then, there have been significant roster changes and growth for Santa Cruz. We anticipate fan-favorite Shamrock N. Roller, who is in her 10th season of derby, to deliver dominating blocks, veteran jammer Ace Wenchura to showcase feats of agility and strength, and some fresh new faces to the team. There are only three chances this season to see hard-hitting, fast-rolling, full contact roller derby at the Civic Auditorium. Don’t miss out—buy your tickets at santacruztickets.com to cheer on your Santa Cruz Derby Girls on March 11th.
The Santa Cruz Derby Girls are currently ranked #23 (Division 1) in the world by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)—the highest ranking the team has held in any season. This year, for the first time ever, Santa Cruz will be playing for rankings against teams like Philly Roller Derby from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kallio Rolling Rainbow from Helsinki, Finland, and Bay Area Derby’s All-Star team. Teams compete throughout the season to increase rankings for a spot in the WFTDA Championship every fall, which brings together the highest ranking roller derby leagues in the US and abroad to win the sport’s highest honors.

SurfAid’s core mission is to save the lives of women and children in remote areas of Indonesia — areas connected to us by surfing. We specialize in working in very isolated villages where the maternal and child mortality rate is extremely high.
In the past sixteen years, in addition to building award winning health programs, SurfAid has helped communities re-build their lives after five major natural disasters — earthquakes and tsunamis in the area.
