About Lafitenia

A beautiful righthand pointbreak, complete with steps in the steep take-off, that leads into a long wall and occasionally hollow inside section. After the excitement of the first steep section, the wall fattens up and allows repetitive cutbacks into the hook before the final race to the shorebreak close-out. Frequented by multi ability surfers on various craft, it's a fairly friendly wave, unlike the psycho outside left that Slater has towed in seasons past. High tide will kill it when smaller, unlike any E wind, since the headland provides protection even from NE. More W in the swell should get the wall lining up across the bay. Campground on the hill above the wave.

Follow Acotz and park just above Lafitenia Bay. Quiksilver European headquarters are just in front, no wonder it’s crowded any time of the day.
