Lafitenia is one of the legendary spots of Guethary, in the same way as Parlementia or Avalanche. This beautiful righthand point break starts working when the waves reach 3ft and can hold up to 15ft. The wave can be surfed at low or mid-tide and reaches its full potential with a W-NW swell and SE wind.
Because Lafitenia is friendly and fun, it is always crowded. That crowd might push you to always sit deeper if you want to be able to catch a wave. Then the take-off gets steeper, so try not to miss your it or you could end up on the rocks. The other option, if you are surfing a longboard, is to sit further out. After the excitement of the first steep and fast section, the wall tends to fatten up for a variation of cutbacks into the hook, before it gets hollower again in the inside.
