Rincon (Spanish, “angle” or “corner”) is a surf spot located at the Ventura and Santa Barbara County line in Southern California, USA. Also known as the “Queen of the Coast”, Rincon is one of the most famous surf spots in California, known around the world for its well-formed waves and long rides.1 The book 100 Best Surf Spots in the World rates Rincon at 24.2 It is best at low tide during the winter months when swells are coming mostly from the west and northwest. There is a gated residential community that occupies most of the Rincon beachfront. However, public access is provided at parking lots on both sides of the gated community, with restrooms and a picnic area in the upper parking lot, Rincon Beach Park.

Because of the quality of the wave, people travel from all over the world to surf there, often resulting in extremely crowded conditions, aggressive behavior, physical altercations and injuries.

There have been occasional deaths at Rincon, mostly resulting from surfers getting caught at the bottom of the cove at higher tides during larger swells, and getting smashed into the granite boulders which support the nearby freeway.

    wonderful! why do the tombstones mostly just have a number on them??

  • Thanks for your comment and feature, I really appreciate it, it seems that the tombstones have the names on the other side that is not shown, although one is showing in this picture, no consistency I guess.
