Santa Cruz Sentinel crime reporter Stephen Baxter isn’t just on the phone, sitting in court all day, or typing at his desk ’til his fingers bleed — not if he can help it.

Thursday, he went out to the shore and caught some awesome footage of Jason “Ratboy” Collins, Nat Young, Adam Replogle, Josh Loya, Randy Bonds and more surfing Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz on April 5, 2012. Then, he put together this video with music by The Groggs. Song title: “Up to no good.”


The music in this video is “Up to no good” (Hint: The link takes you to a free download page) by The Groggs (…And this one goes to their official page).
