Options abound throughout the country for the surfer. All of the higher quality and named breaks are found along the southern coasts of Sumatra, Java, Bali, Timor and inter joining islands. The northern islands offer somewhat limited options due their close proximity to the larger landmasses of South East Asia. The islands of Sulawesi and Borneo are completely blocked from both the Indian and Pacific oceans and offers no serious surfing potential. The northern coasts of Irian Jaya and the islands of the Moluccas are exposed to the North Pacific and offer virtually unexplored options for the surfer. Much of this country is extremely remote and travel can be both very expensive and hazardous. Exercise due caution if embarking upon such an expedition.
