2015 Payette River Games | Gallery and Results

Camaraderie. Constant entertainment. Carnage. Catastrophe. Coveted prize purse of say…50,000 smackaroonies. It’s going to take a lot more than an alliterated checklist to convey the brilliance of the 2015 Payette River Games. And so, we offer an exclusive photo gallery just for you, noble SUP enthusiasts.

SUP mag photographer, Greg Panas, was at water’s edge all weekend for the Payette River Games, delivering imagery of what has evolved into one of the most beloved and unique races on the international SUP calendar. His photos display one of SUP’s most exhilarating events in detail.

Our praise for this event is inexhaustible, and on behalf of the entire SUP community, we thank event organizers Mark & Kristina Pickard, operators and hosts at the event’s venue, Kelly’s Whitewater Park in Cascade, Idaho. But beyond that, we’ll refrain from diluting the awesomeness of this picturesque spectator sport by pinning it up with interpretive adjectives for now. Instead, we offer you the photos above….and this:

-Full rundown and gallery from the opening days at the 2015 Payette River Games.

-A full list of results (see below).

Course breakdown with coordinator and river SUP guru, Dan Gavere.

-Video highlights of past year’s Payette River Games.

-Exclusive gallery from last year’s Payette River Games.

Coming soon:

-Exclusive interview with course-coordinator Dan Gavere about the current and future states of whitewater SUP.

-Lifestyle highlights of the 2015 Payette River Games.

Stay tuned!
