\expandafter\def\csname ext@\@captype\endcsname{none}

does it but of course needs \makeatletter (quite apart from being a
bit on the clumsy side ;-)

how's about building it into a command \suploft(it works for the lot
as well as the lof):

\makeatletter
\newcommand\suploft\expandafter\def\csname ext@\@captype\endcsname{none}}
\makeatother

\begin{figure}
...
\suploft
\caption{...}
\end{figure}

and you can have secret tables, too.

are you sure you're not really after subfigures?
