2023 Rincon Invitational – Apply

Comments Off on 2023 Rincon Invitational – Apply

Team Surfing Benefit Event at Rincon March 11th & 12th, 2023


“Over the years I have competed in countless surfing contests around the world. I’ve also been a part of the Rincon Invitational for over 20 years – because it’s not a competition. It’s all about community and connectivity at one of the world’s finest waves – and that is what surfing needs.”
– Shaun Tomson
“The Rincon Invitational has nurtured me as a lifelong Surfer and Ocean Steward, and what a gift it is to collaborate together as a surfing community by sharing the joy of riding Rincon – blending our surf zone borders and mentoring the next generations of Ocean Scholars.”  
– Jericho Poppler Bartlow

100% of the net proceeds from the Invitational will fund three scholarships: 

  • The Sophia Tiar’e Bartlow Scholarship, administered by the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara – awarded to a Santa Barbara area college-bound student/surfer with an outstanding academic and public service record.
  • The Walter Munk Scholarship – is awarded to a student majoring in oceanography and administered by the Groundswell Society in memory of the legendary oceanographer and friend of the Society
  • The OLAS Foundation Scholarship, to be awarded to a high school student from the Santa Barbara area and administered by The OLAS Foundation and the Groundswell Society.
