Hot Spots - No surfer in their right mind would disclose to an outsider where the breakers are and when they are at their peak. Go to Hawaii or the Maldives, Frenchie.

Larry of AUS... - Don't be fooled... the real surf on Finland is on the north shore in the Arctic Circle. Before you laugh some more, see the new issue of Surfer's Journal... the waves there resemble a cold water Indo.
