Within a short ride from the Bay Area, Santa Cruz is a perfect spot for your next team off-site. Startups and tech teams come from all over the world to live, work and enjoy the coastal lifestyle.
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.
We've put together this list of
team-building activities in
to help you get the most out of your visit.
“Mixing surf and socialization creates a better balance in working together and getting things done.”
“Facilities like Surf Office offer the benefits of an office environment while also providing a place to sleep, have fun and interact with colleagues.”
What type of team building activities can we do in Santa Cruz?
You can walk to Cowells beach for long and gentle rolling waves. It’s one of the best beginner beaches in California. You can go on a hike in the Redwood forest and the national parks along the coast. There are a few local wine tasting rooms in the Santa Cruz Mountains. 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.
How many people can you host?
We’ve hosted dozens of teams with everything from 5 to 30 people but we can accommodate larger groups too.
With 154 BRYTER employees now working remotely across the globe, the company faced a growing problem: How could they ensure their team chemistry and company culture remained intact while expanding so quickly? After all, this is a difficult enough problem for brick-and-mortar offices, let alone remote-first companies like BRYTER. So, how did they resolve this challenge?
Amun’s team of 45 entrepreneurs, engineers, and financial product developers came together in Mallorca for six days of bonding, hardwork and idea generation.
The most popular team building activities are surf lessons, SUP lessons and tapas night but there are plenty more to choose from.
