Calafia – Right Point Surf Break

Surfing Calafia, Baja

Calafia is a wave that most surfers check but never surf. Calafia is a right point break that reels on a big south. Calafia needs an extremely big swell to make this point break. When rumor has it that Calafia gets near perfect, I have driven down to Baja many times and never seen this place pumping, but I always see 5 to 15 people in the lineup. Maybe they know something.
