These are some great spots! Personally, I prefer to surf outside the US. I'm from Costa Rica so I'm partial to that area, but there are plenty of great spots all over the world. Knowing how to pick a great spot is a huge part of enjoying surfing. Thanks for sharing! http://www.costa-rica-surf-adventures.com/surf_camp.html
