Diehard surfers travel the world in pursuit of the perfect wave. If you're dreaming up your next surf adventure, add these places to your list!

The Spot: Morro Bay, California

The Waves: Head to the north side of Morro Bay for great beginner and intermediate surf. Because the beach is west-facing, you get a variety of breaks to practice on.
The Spot: Nias in Sumatra, Indonesia

The Waves: On every surfer's must-visit list, Nias is notorious for its steep and powerful waves. The 2004 tsunami actually moved the reef so significantly that the surf became even better.
The Spot: Ollie's Point in Siglufjörder, Iceland

[post_ads]The Waves: While this is widely regarded as one of Iceland's best surf spots, a crowded day sees only about 10 surfers. Fall and late spring are the best times to catch waves up to 15-feet high. Just make sure you wear your thickest wetsuit for this chilly locale.

The Spot: Jeffreys Bay, South Africa

The Waves: Thought to be the best right-hand ride in the world, Jeffrey's Bay is known for its long, fast barrels—rides are often more than 900 feet long! It also plays host to the annual Billabong Pro ASP World Tour surfing competition.
The Spot: Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca, Mexico

The Waves: With a surf season that lasts from March to December, the quiet town of Puerto Escondido is a surfer's paradise. Its powerful barrels make it one of the best surf spots in Latin America.
The Spot: Cloudbreak in Tavarua, Fiji

The Waves: This deep-sea reef produces waves more than 25 feet high. The best surf is from April to October, when the barrels are wide-open.
The Spot: Pismo Beach, California

The Waves: Try the south side of the pier for a quieter ride of consistent breaks and swells. The pier is usually fully lit, which makes this spot perfect for a night surf!
The Spot: Cloud Nine in Siargao Island, Philippines

[post_ads]The Waves: Calling all risk-takers: The shallow waters and sharp, coral-covered ocean floor can make for a rough ride. But Cloud Nine is also famous for wrapping surfers in the tube of the wave, and—as all surfers know—this experience (often called the green room) is the ultimate dream.
The Spot: Bundoran in Donegal, Ireland

The Waves: This stretch of surf picks up swells from almost every direction, gaining its energy from the North Atlantic. Check out The Peak for long, hollow barrels, or stick with Rossnowlagh Beach if you're more of a beginner. Either way, with views of rolling pastures and stone castles, how could you go wrong?
