just moved there from oz - It a fun cruisy wave that doesn't really break properly until it's head high, mellow locals if you show respect with lots of travelling europeans in the water. With the right swell direction and wind you can get some nice workable walls on the inside, but generally pretty fat.

La Fats - Overcrowded and definately over-rated.
Lafetania is also affectionately called Laugh ats, La Fats or La Farts. Can get good, doesn't happen very often.
