I´ve already surfed with Budi in March 2019, but decided to go back to Bali in September with my boyfriend... and we booked guiding with Budi for nearly three weeks. We absolutely loved it! Even though my boyfriend and I are different levels Budi knew which spots would be suitable for both of us. He gave us a lot of confidence in the water and helped both of us to improve. What I liked most? Budi is such a cheerful character in the water, but at the same time takes his business very serious ... always on time, great video analysis, good gear and wise selection of spots. He also took us on a longer trip to Medewi where me met his family. We can´t wait to go back and do guiding with him again.

Budi is a great surf guide. He is very professional, gives a lot of good advice and is also very nice 😊 Thanks to his help I was able to get some waves already on my first surf lesson! Highly recommend his services. His nephew Budi also works as a surf guide in Surf Buddy. He is also talented, very nice and enthusiastic 😊

My girlfriend and I spent four days with Buddy. As total beginners after only one unsatisfying surf lesson we really enjoyed our time with Buddy. He is a super relaxed guy, speaking very good English and is super knowledgeable. We both stood several waves on the first day and after four days were able to pick up small waves by our owns. He gives great advices which helped us to progress quickly. Before surfing he gave us good instructions including safety and the specifics of the surf spots. So we felt save all the time. Thumbs up and full recommendation from our side. We are looking forward to come back and spend some time with Buddy!

If i have to describe this 5 five days surfing experience with buddy, i should use only one word: amazing. Buddy was so professional, he gave us all the right instrunctions and tips to fully enjoy our beginner surf experience. He provided us the best equipment, he was helpfull in every situation making us feeling always safe and confortable in water, giving us the possibility to surf the right waves in the perfect spots where often no one was there. He brought us in three amazing spots. We felt in love with this sport which became for us, thanks to him, almost addictive. We enjoyed a lot the time spent with him not only during the lessons but also outside the sea: we is funny and always kind. (he also brought us to have am after session meal in a typical balinese restaurant, completing a real surfer experience) So, thanks buddy, we will come back to see you and to improve our surf skills! I reccomend him to everyone, from beginner surfers to experts!
