Just want to drop a quick reply about Indonesia, ... there has already been a lot of info given and most of it is true: it is a surfer's paradise, but it can be very serious as well. A strong period swell there can bring solid waves, so choose your destination well.
There are still quieter spots, particularly South Sumatra. Check out
and send an email if you want any more info. it is a great wave and there are other waves around if it feels too big... it is a beautiful part of the world with friendly locals; well worth a look!
