Been on a few boats out of bali, doggy the man is cheap for a reason the food is shit! the boat is shit! and the whole trip stinks. The locals in the know call him DODGY THE MAN for a good reason.
Partama was ok, but the best bang for bucks was Dreamweaver, they have the best food and as much as you can eat, Aircon, really comfy well set up boat, Aussie owned, an awesome crew and they are the only boat that surfs Sth Lombok, way more waves than any of the other boats.

Hi! Be aware, don't go with doggy the man for boat trip in Indonesia. the boat is a bullshit. The dormitory smell petrol. Some mattress was completely wet of petrol! The most important point : they carry drugs! During the first night, at 3 in the morning, more than 10 boats came to our boat to put small package in the sump of our boat. They use the surfing boat trip to carry druggs to the gili island!So, everybody quit te boat the next day. and went to lombok. I recommand everybody to make known this story for people do not go with them.
Enjoy surfing every one! but without them!
