Here's what's happening

The #CEOSurfChallenge is an official call-out from the Mayor of Santa Cruz to all the executives of Silicon Valley. The Mayor will take CEOs from the Silicon Valley surfing in Santa Cruz. We will create a social media campaign to attract the attention of leaders in the Valley and share our story. Santa Cruz has long been appreciated for its vibrant local food and culture, beautiful beaches, redwood forests and healthy outdoor lifestyle, but it is truly the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the people who live and work here that sets Santa Cruz apart. It is not just a great place to live, but it is also a serious place to do business. This would be a positive way to better tell our story.

Update 12/10/13

Hotel Paradox has offered to provide rooms to any CEO who is participating in the #CEOSurfChallenge!

Now, all the CEOs will be able to enjoy the paradox of Hotel Pardox--a most unique hotel experience that explores an urban forest set inside a beach town-- the evening of the surf challenge. After catching some waves, Paradox will be hosting a poolside cocktail reception at their hotel. Hotel Paradox Website Hotel Paradox

Update 12/12/13

Check out this fireside chat with Hilary Bryant on the CEO Surf Challenge!

Here's how it's going to roll out...

The purpose is to take the CEOs from Silicon Valley and get them all together to enjoy a day of surfing and to talk about the rich entrepreneurial culture of Santa Cruz. The event will be happening sometime in February when Santa Cruz has beautiful weather and awesome surf.

  • If you already know how to surf, come on down and catch some waves with Hilary Bryant!
  • If you don't know how to surf, fear not! We will set you up with one of our local surf schools, or our own software engineer Todd Anderson, an experienced surfer/lifeguard who would be happy to give you a surf lesson so that you can approach surfing in a fun and safe manner.
  • If you don't have a board or a wetsuit, let us know and we'll get you one!
  • Come out and enjoy the party!

This came out of the Local Economy group from Civinomicon 2013 and the idea is to see how we can be more apart of the Silicon Valley tech community and to highlight our unique work-play culture.

If any executives in the Silicon Valley are interest, you can let us know by either of these contact methods: 1. email Hilary Bryant (Mayor) at hbryant@cityofsantacruz.com 2. reply to her on Twitter through @Hilary_Bryant with #CEOSurfChallenge

I think the lack of comments on this tells the tale. Make them pay for rooms at the luxurious hotels. They can afford it!
