WiLDCOAST Wins at Rincon!

WiLDCOAST Team Invited to the Goundswell Society's 5th Annual Rincon Invitational
The WiLDCOAST Team Stoked at Rincon

Last weekend the WiLDCOAST Team participated in the 5th Annual Rincon Invitational put on by the Groundswell Society at Rincon Point in Santa Barbara, California. The unique event is more of a celebration than a competition as humanitarian and environmental non-profits from around the state are invited to send ten surfers into the line-up at Rincon for an hour of fun. Rincon, also known as the Queen of the Coast, is one of the world's premier pointbreaks. To be given the opportunity to enjoy her perfect surf for an hour with a crew of WiLDCOAST's surf-stoked groms and parents is an honor we look forward to every year.

This year exceeded all expectations as the swell lit up the point all day and only a few non-participants trickled through the line-up. This meant for 60 minutes of wave sharing, hooting, laughing and ripping among WiLDCOAST's "grom squad," their parents and a few local legends. WiLDCOAST was awarded "Most Waves Ridden" and "Youngest Rider." But most awarding was the stoke that the team took home after a wonderful day at The 'Con. We'd like to thank Glenn Henning, the Groundswell Society and the Rincon Pit Crew for amazing the amazing opportunity.
