People cutting in on your waves can be a real drag. The only sure-fire way to avoid snakes (riders who steal waves from other surfers) is to find yourself a nice uncrowded break. Check out these five remote surfing spots, where the journey to the wave promises to be as epic as the ride on it. (Our golden featured image is by Aristocrats-hat.)

Robertsport – Liberia
Recognized by the International Surfing Association, Liberia is officially on the surfing map. The small fishing village Robertsport recently hosted the national championships. The reliable waves and warm water here make it a top, up-and-coming spot. The capital Monrovia is also blessed with a number of decent breaks, not least Mamba Beach.
Mentawai Islands – Indonesia
The Mentawai Islands lie roughly 60 miles off the western coast of Sumatra. The surf off this remote island chain is renowned for its consistency. Some have even gone so far to describe it as perfect. The island chain offers up a heady of mix of beginner spots and breaks that are strictly for the experienced.
Malaita – Solomon Islands
The Solomon Islands consist of nearly 1,000 islands spread over 11,000 square miles of the Pacific Ocean. Malaita is one the largest of those islands. Despite having dozens of world-class left and right hand breaks, it remains one of world’s last surfing frontiers.
Playa Colorado – Nicaragua
One of the best and most consistent spots in the country, Playa Colorado is a one-and-three-quarter mile long beach with three distinct breaks. One of them has a genuine shout for being world-class, given the tubes it serves up. The only local accommodation comes in the form of rental properties in the adjacent Hacienda Iguana private development.
