Santa Barbara Adventure Company - Surfing and Santa Barbara go hand in hand! Since 1998, Santa Barbara Adventure Company's surfing trips have been a great way to experience this exciting sport! Our knowledgeable guides focus on the fundamentals--reading water, paddling, etiquette, catching waves and riding. We choose surf sites based on the current swell and tide conditions, finding the best breaks for successful learning. The trip will include 2 sessions with a break for lunch on the beach. Soft-top boards and wetsuits are included.
 

Wednesday at Rincon

Since the release of Warner Brothers' Big Wednesday, the 1978 film has become a cult classic for its vivid portrait of the California surfing lifestyle. So Wednesday seemed the natural day to do a Rincon Point photo shoot. As luck would have it, Wednesday did not disappoint.

Santa Barbara County has many popular surf locations. Here we showcase one location that many surfers consider the crown jewel of wave riding in our area: Rincon Point.

Rincon Point, 15 minutes south of Santa Barbara, is known world wide as one of the planet's top surfing spots. Nearly every major surf champion on the globe has taken Rincon for a test drive.

If you are driving the 101 freeway, exit Bates Rd. On most days parking is plentiful at Rincon. When entering Rincon, the parking to your left has a path right to the south size of the surf zone. The parking lot to your right has mountainside stairs that take you to the beach just north of the point.
