Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.
Australasia is a region of Oceania: New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean. The term was coined by Charles de Brosses, he derived it from the Latin for "south of Asia" and differentiated the area from Polynesia (to the east) and the southeast Pacific (Magellanica). It is also distinct from Micronesia (to the northeast).
This region of the world is home to some of the longest, biggest and most perfect waves in the world. Australia as an island, is the size of Europe. The roaring forties which lie to the south of Australia and New Zealand are responsible for most of the great surf to hit the shores of these two great surfing nations.
The Roaring Forties is a name given, especially by sailors, to the latitudes between 40°S and 50°S, so called because of the boisterous and prevailing westerly winds. Because there is less landmass to slow them down, the winds are especially strong in the Southern Hemisphere, notably in the South Indian Ocean, which is now incorporated into what is known as the Southern Ocean. It is these consistent, strong winds that produce good quality surf which then travels north towards Australia and New Zealand
