Unconfirmed rumors have been swirling in the past few weeks of a great white shark swimming in the waters off well-known surf break Rincon Point. While a confirmed great white sighting was documented by Carpinteria city officials in March just west of Rincon, no such evidence exists of this particularly toothy summertime swimmer. The most recent reports allege an approximately 15-foot great white patrolling the top of the point and the adjacent back beach. For comparison, the March shark was estimated to measure between 14-16 feet.
