Michael Novy, one of Australiaâ€™s finest bodyboarders, and a quintessential cog in the two original ROAM films has joined the team that spawned the series, the NOMAD FSD.
Following his signing to the Nomad team Novy commented, â€œIâ€™m ecstatic to be riding for Nomad after years of working alongside them and their team. To have signed with a company that will be supportive and proactive I can focus on really developing my surfing. This has rejuvenated my passion and I am enthusiastically looking forward to 2013 with Nomad and what it will bringâ€.
Nomad Team Manager Shane Britten said of their new recruit â€œIts great to finally be working with Novy as part of the Nomad FSD. In the past he has always been there as part of our projects, and even this year has travelled extensively with Chris James, so we know he is a great fit for our team which prides itself on surf travel and wave exploration. Novy is an incredible bodyboarder and will bring a fresh dynamic to our already renowned team of riders as we begin new projects for 2013â€.
