CARPINTERIA, Calif. - The Rincon Invitational is underway at Rincon Point near Carpinteria.

The annual competition is about sharing waves.  

Team members from San Diego to Santa Barbara win points by catching waves together.

The nonprofit created by Shawn Thompson and Tanna Frederick hosts beach cleanups and beach days for the Santa Barbara Autism Society. 

The Rincon Invitational will continue on Sunday from 7a.m. to 5 p.m.

Spectators are welcome.
