    Can be anywhere in the world.

    Explain why.

    Has to be within your ability to surf it.

    For me it would be Malibu's First Point. Uncrowded of course.

    I love the idea of surfing a break with so much surfing history from the old days. I can visualise sitting out in the line-up with the likes of Dora and co. Probably wouldnt get many waves if they were out there, but dreams are free.

    I really dig the longboard styling / cruising aspect of surfing, and Malibu epitomises that better than anywhere in the world, I think.

    tricky question, i can think of so many i'd like to surf.....mostly the ones that don't involve crowds or wetsuits....somewhere tropical and over head high would do me.

    well, to be honest Rob, i would be stoked to go surf cloudbreak again...simply because it;s such a surfable wave in warm water...and being way out in the open ocean gets the adrenaline going...and the view of distorted multi fluro coloured coral warping up wave faces is unreal.

    next pic would have to be a righthander like jefferys bay...because it's classic...and looks like you could really get some speed up on some sections.

    then probably HT's or some other indo reef....rights preferred.

    man, there are just so many cool waves..la jola looks epic.

    so on the whole, somewhere warm(boardies), uncrowded and perfect for down the line speed runs and easy barrels would do me just fine.




    Very Happy

    Does it have to still be in working condition... Snappers with no-one on it, or maybe the Superbank when it was, or Kirra of old at 4-5ft.

    Basically a right-hand sand-bottom point break that is hollow and peels just slightly slower than a fish's top speed in water +18deg, and I'm there.

    Cloud 9, HTs or Lagundri Bay.
    The pic of HTs on the cover of "The Pilgrimage" book is probably my favorite wave photo of all time.

    Within my ability? Well, I'd risk a hell beating for anyone of them.
