Jourdo – Your Guide & Surf Photographer

On board surf guide and photographer, Jourdo is originally from Sydney’s Bondi beach and is now currently based in Padang and Bali.

Jourdo’s passion for surfing and photography has led him spend over 30 years travelling to many parts of beautiful Indonesia, including Bali, Sumatra and the Mentawais. Jourdo’s in depth knowledge of the Mentawais will help him guide you to the best possible surf breaks on offer. He enjoys taking his guests to a selection of beautiful surf locations, choosing the best waves based on daily conditions, and also to best suit the appropriate level of the surfers. Then whilst you are getting barrelled, he will on the camera or drone capturing your wave of the day. Jourdo is also a very keen fisherman, and in his past life was a qualified chef, so fresh fish dishes will be a major inclusion to your trip.
