So here’s the deal…Surf fashion intrigues me.
Over my years as a surf photographer at Rincon, I’ve discovered that the people watching comes a close second to watching the surfing at the annual Rincon Classic surf contest.
From experience, I know that surfers don’t spend a lot of time primping. Hats are grabbed while on the fly, hair can be a bit scruffy, oft times uncombed. Jackets, t-shirts and shorts are usually wrinkled. I like that.
Sunscreen, a water bottle, shades, a bar of wax and the right surfboard are the priorities.
That said, I feel the need to share a few photographs of stylish surfers and surfer supporters from prior Rincon Classics.
