GoPro Mountain Games | Izzi Gomez

GoPro Mountain Games | Izzi Gomez

The GoPro Mountain Games are only one day away from officially kicking off, meaning anticipation levels are maxed out. Outdoor adventure sports athletes from across the country have been descending upon Vail, Colorado for the past week and now it’s time to get down to business. One paddler making an appearance at the games this year is none other than teenage superstar, Izzi Gomez. The 16-year-old is no doubt a force when it comes to SUP surfing, having won back-to-back Standup World Tours. While she’s a relative newcomer at whitewater SUP, Gomez did notch an impressive podium finish last year at the Payette River Games. With her raw natural talent, there is seemingly no limit to what she can do. Gomez will definitely be one to watch this weekend and we expect big things from the teenage phenom.
