Lachlan Cramsie: future Aussie commander

The second round out of three of the QLD Queensland Association of Bodyboarding (QAB) state titles series was held at Anne street reef, Caloundra.

The venue hosted QLD's best bodyboarders who travelled from Byron Bay up to Rainbow beach. It was a huge success with the full field of 80 invited contestants turning up to battle it out over two days of 6 hotly contested divisions.

Two-time national bodyboard champion Lachlan Cramsie, from Maroochydore, again cemented his name as one of the front runners on the 2011 QLD state championship series winning both the Opens and Juniors divisions in what became a very successful event for local bodyboarders with Alexandria Headland's Ben Newland taking out the Cadets division and Caloundra's Zac Sonner winning the Drop Knee division.

The riders in this event grabbed valuable championship points, which is also being used by the QAB (Queensland Association of Bodyboarding) officials as a selection criteria to pick the QLD team for the 2011 National Titles which are going to be held Kiama, on the South Coast of NSW, later this year.

The first event of the year was held on at Duranbah on the Gold Coast and the final event will be held next month at Byron Bay. Points from all three events being held on the 2011 QAB QLD championship series will be tallied up after the last event at Byron bay, in which the QLD team will be announced for the national titles and the 2011 QLD bodyboard champions will be crowned.
