KTVU-TV of Oakland produced a time-lapse video showing the tides moving in and out at Santa Cruz's Cowell Beach. Below, the Santa Cruz Sentinel records one large swell battering boats. The newspaper estimated that the tsunami caused $17 million in damage there.

KPIX-TV of San Francisco had cameras rolling when one of the largest waves smashed into the Santa Cruz marina (see fourth video below).
