Lachlan Cramsie: hitting the lip at Duranbah Beach

Lachlan Cramsie claimed the Inverted Dbah Pro 2017, in the Gold Coast, Australia.

The second stop on the 2017 ABA Tour gathered nearly 100 bodyboarders competing in three-to-four-foot offshore surf at Duranbah Beach.

There were barrel rides, airs, and even a specialty vintage bodyboard heat with boards launched before 1997, including a Kainoa McGee Wave Rebel, a Rheopaipo, a Mach 7-7, and a Bullet.


In the Open Men's final, Cramsie and Mitch Rawlins went blow for blow, but it was the former Sunshine Coast resident who came out with the win.

"This is such a good one to win because it's been going for so long here and always has a big crowd. The waves were a bit slow, so it's been a hard heat and long half-an-hour," expressed Lachlan Cramsie.

Australia's best bodyboarders will now travel to the south coast of New South Wales for the SWS Mystics Pro.
