I'm heading off to Rincon and are staying at Rincon of the Seas Grand Caribbean Hotel. This is my 1st trip and I'm looking for any tips mellow surf spots where I can bring my girl friend -- she does not surf and I want to be able to paddle out w/o worrying about her. I'm looking for novice/intermediate level breaks with cool locals.
Also any other cool things to do if you know of any...

Thanks
