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 photo shoot. As luck would have it, Wednesday did not disappoint.

Rincon Point, on the south edge of Carpinteria, 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.
