Here is a very cool video clip of a day at rincon... This goes to show how many waves come through on a typical afternoon when there's swell. The tide, swell, and crowd can fluctuate drastically. Looks like it's the end of the NW swell season here in Santa Barbara, Looking forward to summer warmth and longer days now. Road trips to find south swell and small windswell will be the norm for the next few months.
