- 07 January 2009 | Bodyboarding
2009 began with a bang for Nomad Bodyboards yesterday with both Glen Thurston & Matt Lackey re-signing with the company.
The two join compatriot Chris James as the 3 core and founding members of Nomad’s F.S.D. (Free Surf Division).
The Nomad F.S.D. was established to allow Nomad’s collective of riders an opportunity to not only provide their expertise on product design and development, but to also provide a program to launch projects of their own creation.
This program has spawned the successful ROAM film series and the Riptide covermount film 40 days around the world. The original ROAM received the honour of being voted “Best Video” in the 2008 Riptide peer poll, with it’s follow up ROAMII released 2 months ago.
Nomad owner Shane Britten said of the signing “We are stoked to be continuing our long standing relationships with both Lackey & Pence.
These guys are amazingly talented in the water, and along with Chris James we have built a formidable team that enjoys working as a collective on projects as much as we enjoy working with them.”
With Chris James, Matt Lackey, & Glen Thurston reconfirming their commitment to the F.S.D., 2009 promises to be another fantastic year for Nomad Bodyboards.
