Santa Cruz



Santa Cruz


Santa Cruz is the hometown of the Californian “surfer dude.” The 29 beaches that surround the city are great for many fun (and often stress relieving) team building activities like surfing, paddleboarding, mountain biking, and beach yoga.

You will stay in the center of Santa Cruz within a short distance from the beach, coffee shops, grocery stores, hip restaurants, wineries and cool bars.

Our clients love us

Everyone was delighted by the venue, the activities, the transfer coordination and everything! Long live Surf Office! Can’t wait to plan our next company retreat with you :)

People & Culture Lead

The entire offsite was very great, very good. Very well organized. I liked the planning process - I didn't have to do it, I just had to approve it. I trusted you completely, with everything... I saw this attention to detail and we really appreciate it.

Personal Assistant to CEO

You were amazing and saved me 90% of the time I would have used... definitely working with Surf Office again, 10/10.

People Experience and Operations Manager

From the very first contact to the last goodbye, Surf Office was an incredible company to work with for our company retreat in Portugal. The customer service was top tier and every single person I interacted with was absolutely lovely, professional and so helpful.

Head of Human Resources

You were unswayable in terms of your positivity, in terms of your proactiveness and cooperation, and just your get it done mentality. So that was really good. Thank you.

Global Head of Product & Portfolio Marketing

Honestly, everything went so smoothly. From Anthony sending us proposals and working hard at finding the right venue, to Romane planning every detail and being so flexible with our requests, to Fernanda being an absolute superstar onsite and being so helpful. Thank you all so much!

Technical Talent Lead

I panicked when I learned I had to plan this, I've never done this before. Everything went smoothly for me, I wouldn't have been able to do it without you.

Office Manager

I mean, you guys are magicians. I don't know how you do it... Honestly, it's been great, Jolanda, the support that you've given during the planning stage with all of the prep work that goes into it beforehand. You guys are really, honestly, the best. Thank you so much, you make my life so much easier.

People & Operations Manager

In full transparency, everyone loved it. People are still talking about it. The main goal was team bonding and you helped me to reach it.

Paddleboarding and beach yoga are other popular team bonding activities.

Can you help us with flights?
Based on where your team is located, we can definitely advise you the most optimal Surf Office location for your next team meetup. However, we don’t book the flights for clients but we can recommend some good services.
