Rincon is an amazing place to surf. What put Rincon on the map was the 1968 World Surfing Championship held at Domes Beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Some places to surf are Domes, Marias, Indicators and many more. If you are learning to surf definitely try getting an instructor, these will show you where the best places are for your level of surfing. The winter surf along Rincon's coast is some of the best in the region. Most generally regarded as one of the best surf spots across the globe, Rincon draws surfers from around the world. Rincon is the center of the island surf scene. Dubbed the "Caribbean Pipeline," winter waves here can approach 25 feet (6.7m) in height, equaling the force of the surf on Oahu's north shore. Famed surfing beaches in town include Puntas, Domes, Tres Palmas, Steps, Sandy Beach, Antonio's, Pools, and Maria's. The best time to surf is from November through April, but summer storms can also kick up the surf.
