About La Fitenia

To the south of the main Las Americas breaks, as the coastline turns the corner, there is a flat section of reef called La Fitenia. Home to some fun waves when small, it needs swell from more of a southerly direction to work. Usually pretty mellow, there are a couple of lefts and rights and a surf school operates here. However, it will turn on in the right conditions when a big peak appears, producing long, wrapping right and lefthand walls that will pull in the crowds.
