Walk up from Mondos (to the south) or paddle from the campground (on the northend). When you see white water from Mondos looking north, then GO to Faria. It is better than Rincon without the crowds. Lotta old men surf it.Fun long wave!

 Additional Information

Pitas is a combination point and sand bar. It's a grinder at low tide or on a big swell. Not as big as Rincon on the same swell but arguably hollower and faster. It's a long point with many sections in the wave, but if you can connect a couple of sections you are good to go 75 to 100 meters. Pitas is different than Mondos, Mondos is the beginner wave to the south, at the base of Pitas Point.

Atmosphere

INSANELY CROWDED! It used to be sort of a secret spot creating a wierd situation where everyone sez they used to surf it "alone", but now they are surfing it with all the other guys who used to surf it alone. How does that work?

Not that Bad - The crowd here isn't that bad. Everyones pretty cool for the most part. I usually surf pretty much right in front of the campground and catch the ones that break deeper up the point. Kinda closed out and rocky, but usually alone because everyones at the peak.
