70 SUP Shots from the 2017 GoPro Mountain Games
The amount of talent at last weekend’s 2017 GoPro Mountain Games was remarkable.
With two SUP events on the adventure-sport competition’s agenda--a Downriver Sprint and the Surf Cross--the field of men’s athletes featured more than 60 contenders and the women’s roughly 30, all experienced whitewater paddlers, all prepared for an all-out whitewater war.
Over the course of the weekend in Vail, dozens of dramas ensued and each competitor wrote its own intense tale. In the end so many memorable moments were had that they just won’t fit into one event recap and gallery. For those who may not have made the podium but were there competing in equal part to create the stunning experience, we’re putting out the B-roll. 70 snapshots from a spectacular weekend in SUP. Thanks to all the athletes, families brands and fans who made the 2017 GoPro Mountain Games everything it was!
