Where is Lagunas and 26th Avenue surf spots?
Lagunas is a beautiful and wild beach approximately 6 miles north of Santa Cruz.  Take Highway 1 North.  It's 6 Miles north of Western Drive. 
Look for the road sign that says "Laguna Road"  The tricky part:  there are two Laguna Roads.  Park at the one with the dirt parking lot and porta potty. It's the second one. Go to the north side of the parking lot.  
NOTE:  VERY LIMITED PARKING. Please carpool when possible.  Cross the highway.  Look both ways!!  Follow the trail straight to the beach for 1/4 mile.  Go to Google maps to see a nice photo of the parking lot and directions. 
Use 6092 Laguna Road, Santa Cruz as a destination point.  The waves are challenging with some refractive waves off the rocks making for some nice lefts.  You will not be disappointed in the incredible beauty of this beach

 

26th Avenue is a challenging beach break with rights and lefts.  Park at the large public parking lot at Moran Lagoon a bit south from 26th Avenue with an outdoor shower and restrooms.  You can Google 22790 East Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz as a destination point.

Can I bring something to the BBQ?
