Inside Cuba's Surf Revolution from STAB Magazine “The true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.” ― Ernesto Che Guevara The Cuban dream includes surfing, the country just doesn’t know it yet.

The 9th Annual Rincon Beachboy stand up paddle contest is kicking off tomorrow at Villa Cofresi in Rincon. If you can paddle and balance at the same time, don't miss out on a killer race with more than $10,000 in cash prizes up for grabs. Be sure and give Greg Carson, co-organizer of the event a big "Tip Top" hello from us at The Uncharted Studio. For registration and additional information visit rinconbeachboy.com
Mermaid apparel is on point over at one of our favorite boutique hotels here in Rincon: Tres Sirenas Beach Inn. Located at Sea Beach, Tres Sirenas Inn offers ocean view rooms, daily gourmet breakfast, beachfront access and an oceanfront pool. A quaint, relaxing location for your vacation (or stay-cation) in Rincon. The oceanfront property's in-house gift shop is stocked with freshly printed apparel, printed locally at our studio.
Quite possibly the best workout view in Rincon is at Rincon Ride Spin Studio. Run by husband and wife duo John and Kathy, the 60-minute classes are available each morning and select evenings at their outdoor, oceanfront studio. Our recommendation: sign up for the sunset rides, you can focus on the colors of the sky on the water instead of your burning thighs. New tank tops are headed their way this week. Snag a spot in one of their classes and pick up new workout apparel while you're there!
