The Rincon is considered by many to be one of the best surfing places in the world.  The ocean bottom off the point is shallow and slopes gently out about 300 yards.  This means surfers can ride a wave for a very long time (in surfing standards).  It's amazing to watch surfers coast for a minute or two along the point.




Take the 101 to the Bates Road exit.  Turn towards the ocean.  when you get to South Via Real, turn right.
