Brody Rincon Road Trip

My family decided that we were going to take a late-Spring road trip Santa Barbara, California. That’s 795 miles in the car with my 2-year-old sister!! I was stoked to be going to the beach after a long, cold winter, but not about the long drive.

We left on Friday and made it to San Francisco that night. We were getting closer to warmer water and the famous Rincon Point, which is also known as “The Queen of the Coast”. It’s a right-hand point break and since I’m a regular foot, those are my favorite waves.

We made it down to Santa Barbara the next afternoon and I was excited to go surf the next morning. We woke up and it was a little rainy and kinda cold, but that wasn’t going to stop us since we’re from the Northwest. The swell was a little big for me so it was a lot of paddling, turtle rolls and I only got a few waves with my dad’s help.

The next day we checked out Rincon again and the sun was out, the crowd was mellow and swell dropped a bit so I was able to get a bunch waves on a 5’5” Cubicle Trekkie.

The following day, since we had so much fun at Rincon we went back for more. Lucky for us it was just as good, so we suited up and had a great session. That afternoon I got to skate the SB skatepark.

The next 2 days were flat so we went to checkout the Skate One factory where they make Powell Peralta Skateboards and Bones Wheels and then we also went to the Santa Barbara zoo. Both were really cool.

On the last day we went to Butterfly Beach for a family day and I spent the whole time in the water riding my Catch Surf Stump in some little dumpy beach break. The waves were hard to ride, but still super fun!
