    Thumbs up

    I've lived on the east coast my whole life, but I'd still have to agree with Chris. Once you have surfed Indo and other select spots around the world you just can't look at home the same anymore. I've ridden waves on days that would be considered epic on the east coast and I can tell you for sure it ain't even close..........Last summer I was lucky enough to surf a break in the Mantawai Islands called Rifles with only 3 other guys out. I can honestly say it was the most spiritural day of my life. 600 yd long rides of perfect double overhead glassy barrels. In that one session I probably logged more tube time then the entire rest of my life. 80+ degree water that was crystal clear, absolutely no wind, and all the waves you could ride; if you know of a place like that on the east coast, I stand corrected.

    If anyone is interested, go to http://www.mentawaiislands.com/kandui/ and see for yourself.

    Do we have to pick just one ?

    I've always dreamed of J-Bay a couple feet overhead - now if only the water was 80deg too

    Oh yes I realize that, but I was saying i'm always going to remember good local surf sessions too and where I grew up. I would definitely agree that there are many amazing spots that kill east coast.

    I haven't been alot of places other than the east coast except for waikiki. I know it is not the north shore, but I rode waves there all the way down the beach, the wave fizzles out and then raises again, i turn and ride that wave in the opposite direction again all the way down the beach.These rides can last well over 1 minute. They may not be very intense, but I will never forget those rides over 1 min long.
