One of Australia’s best emerging bodyboarders has signed on the dotted line with Nomad Bodyboards.

21-year-old South Coast competitive machine Lachlan Cramsie will ride for the Australian board company after an announcement by Nomad team manager Shane Britten today.

“We are stoked to have Lachie join Nomad,” Mr Britten said.

“He is a fantastic bodyboarder and fierce competitor, and will add a new dynamic to our team.

“We hope to support him in his competitive endeavours, and also aim to expose more of his free surfing. He’s only 21 and has a long career ahead of him.”

Cramsie has been a man on a mission since leaving the Stealth Bodyboards team late last year, opting to “go it alone” on the APB World Tour, where he turned heads with an impressive quarter final finish at the Mike Stewart Pipeline Invitational last month.

The former Sunshine Coaster has a stellar resume in contests, having won numerous National Junior and Open Titles and 2013 Australasian Pro Tour champion.

He now has his sights set on the world stage, and will take his new Nomad boards to the South Pacific when he competes at the Sparkgreen Tahiti Challenge next weekend.

Cramsie will join Chris James, Michael Novy and Matt Lackey on the Nomad Team.

The new Nomad Cramsie pro model board is expected to hit stores in six weeks.
