Nias, HT's and Greenbush got to be there. I'd put them in place of moneytrees, Lacerations and Ulu's

Desert Point is so many times better than Scar Reef, imo.

Im going to cheat, in no real order.

Lefts:
1. Desert point
2. Super Suck
3. G-Land
4. No kandui
5. Green bush
6. Occys left
7.Padang Padang
8. One palm Point
9. Ullus (for it's versatility at all sizes etc)
10. Macaronis

Rights:
1. Nias
2.HT's
3.Riffles
4. Treasure Island
5. Rags right
6. DCs (can put it here as so fickle)
7.Apocalypse
8. Sanur (lots rate it highly)
9. Spot X in Sumatra
10. Spot X in East Indo

All that said these are just the world class mostly big or long barrel well known type waves bar say the odd one, my list would be different if it was the waves i personally love (not that i don't love many of the waves listed) but more your Bingin, Laceration type waves (perfection that most surfers can enjoy) Im not going to name them here as even if not secret they are still lesser known and often under rated and I don't want to bring attention to them on a forum.

As noted above there are plenty of quality waves all through the archipelago, the best ones are the ones you score when they are on with little or no other crew around imo
