My problem with bucket lists is that they never seem reasonable and so I don't take them seriously. Instead I like to make a goal or two per year and see how I do. This year, take a week off of work and score epic hurricane swell in Nova Scotia!
I got to Pais Vasco a couple years ago and spent a fall getting yelled at in Basque. There was always swell but also always crowds. I think PJB has got it right with the going north thing...

Noosa Heads is on my list too. So is Rincon (CA) on a head high swell in winter. Non surfing- I would love to ride a rocket into space, weightlessness and stuff yo.

To have one summer where a kook doesn't drop in on me I like to keep it simple
I'd like to surf a cool tidal bore, not in the dirty rivers of Asia or Africa but like kepa acero did in Alaska. Somewhere cold and clean untouched by man. Just have to watch out for bears going fishing I guess
