SANTA CRUZ — The surf school instructor accused of inappropriate sexual contact with young girls made his first court appearance Wednesday, where he was charged with lewd and lascivious acts with children, as well as creation and possession of child pornography.

Dylan David Greiner, 38, was also charged with sending harmful material to a minor. He will return to court Sept. 10 where he is expected to enter a plea. Public defender Diana August asked for a continuance as Greiner seeks a private attorney.

During the hearing, Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge Timothy Volkmann doubled Greiner’s bail to $1 million at the request of prosecutors.

Even if Greiner does post bail, he will be subject to several conditions imposed by Volkmann at the request of Santa Cruz County Assistant District Attorney Raphael Vazquez.

These include keeping away from children, staying off beaches and out of parks and surrendering his business license.

Greiner, wearing an orange jailhouse outfit, seemed subdued as he sat in the suspect holding area, frequently resting his head on his handcuffed hands. At one point he appeared to make the sign of the cross. He conferred briefly with August and defense attorney Dustin Gordon, speaking little.
