Toby Cracknell Officially Joins Team Infinity SUP
Infinity SUP Co. is proud to announce that ISA Team Australia member and 2016 5th Place M2O finisher Aussie young gun Toby Cracknell has officially joined the #infinityspeedfreaks. Already a seasoned pro in the sport of SUP and one of Australia's young emerging stars, Toby officially joins Candice Appleby, Slater Trout, and Giorgio Gomez rounding out the creative and diverse group of athletes on Infinity's Elite Race Team.
Born and raised in Avoca Beach, Toby was born and bred in the ocean lifestyle. Growing up in the prestigious Aussie lifeguard programs swimming, paddling and competing has come second nature. Toby is a lifeguard and cross trains on the road bike and is known for putting in the miles by foot as running has been a long time passion.
Toby is known for his sprint race talents as he finished 2nd Place at the Jamie Mitchel Survivor Race in Huntington Beach where some are calling the most competitive race of the year. He also had a huge performance at M2O finishing 5th place overall in the prestigious downwind crossing. A well rounded paddler, and currently at press ranked #15 (SUPracer.com) on the world rankings, Toby is looking to move up the leaderboard in 2017.
"I'm super stoked and honored to be joining Infinity SUP and their world class team of paddle freaks!" said Toby, "The race boards go unreal and i had great luck right from the get go at some of the bigger races of the year racing them. Looking forward to spending some time in the US with the crew and being part of my favorite sup brand. The team atmosphere has been second to none and it feels good to have that kind of support!"
Dave Boehne Infinity's VP of Design and Marketing states – "We are only in our 2nd year of production on a global scale so we are stoked to have partnered with Toby and our crew at Next Level SUP in Australia.
