I took this picture while watching some of my friends race the Santa Cruz Triathlon. The SC Triathlon is a common end of the race season event for many triathletes from the local areas. I noticed the depth of the pier when walking from the swim start to the swim exit, the event swim goes around the SC Pier.
The Santa Cruz pier is a local and national landmark, people travel from all over the United States and world to visit the Pier and Boardwalk. Both the Pier and Boardwalk and been shown in many of Hollywood films.
