And are most of the best waves in the world lefts?

Sorry if has been done before, i ripped of this topic from another site, but thought it was an interesting topic.

So what do people think the best waves in the world are?.

(In no particular order)

1. Old Kirra
2. Desert point
3. G-Land
4. Skelton bay (One of those
5. Tavaru (cheating here, Cloudbreak and Restaurants)
4. Riffles (IMO best right in the world now)
5. Supersuck
6. HT's (It was either HT's or Nias, Nias is great but it's just too short, not that HT's is much longer)
7. Pipe
8.J-Bay
9. Purto escondido (need to throw in a beachie)
10. Spot X

Granted it is a novelty (anecdotally I've heard whispers of the older generation say they'll make it down to albatross back in the day), but the fat wave is pretty bloody fun. Cutbacks until your legs turn to jelly is great fun / great for repetition / practise.

After impossibles you'll get to coins --> tubes and only then point... lower point, and you can get plenty barreled on the way. It's only when you get to point on days like that, that it's a fat wave.

We travelled the world from 1980 till now 'from beachies to massive tow in and have to admit the best places are when you get them on. Had some of the best paces ever produce crap and some of the crap places turn it on. Where ever you score enjoy and thats the buzz about surfing, not only the wave but who you are out there with.

Cronulla Point - crowds, too many idiots these days, still few sneaker waves with a only a boog or two while nobody's looking though.
Voodoo - can be crowded but many just 2 out surfs. Boggles the mind, beach crap and no-one thinks "VOOEY" except maybe Brownie from Kurnell.
Thommos - great late afternoon glass-off find when cruising home.
add Kiddies - again no-one seems to notice a sneaky 3-4 footer when Point maxed?

Old Kirra - 71-72 had great Winter banks and luckily Snapper was also on, Burleigh too! Definitely WAS a top 10 in it's day.

You're well travelled Clif. What part of the Taiwan coast was this reef at?

Go deeper Taylor, go deeper!

This place a couple of years ago. Middle of May, med-large SE swell, nobody else in the camp ground, no-one else in the water, just the wallabies to keep me company. Three hours of this...

Don't let the bastards grind you down

Love the abstruse descriptions, Clif: "a reef" or a "a certain reef"

Stu.

Haha some i would get shot for mentioning. Some dont have a name, seriously. 'The reef at ...' is the reference. These hidden locations were found with great effort and a lot of hard work.

Pumping here late this week. Reefs. Big north swell. Snow. Offshores. Good tides. Bliss. (Except for the hole in my glove! Lets hope the new one gets here before!)
