Santa Cruz whitewater boaters

I live in Colorado now but will be moving to Santa Cruz. Are there any whitewater boaters there? Obviously the whitewater will be a drive, but hooking up with some locals to make the drive with would be good.

There's a big surf kayak scene there. I paddled with a guy in costa rica from SC; and although he spent most of his time in the ocean, he paddled rivers during the runoff too. Find some of those guys in the lineup and introduce yourself.

I grew up in Santa Cruz. You & El Flaco have it a 100% right. It's all about the surf. Rivers with any kind of reliable flow will be a drive. Best bet is to learn how to board surf or get a surf boat. Predictions are for a moderate to strong El Nino this year so odds are good for giant surf and runnable flows in the local streams.
