Talking SUP with Mo Freitas

Oahu’s Mo Freitas surprised the world last year with his win at the Ubatuba Pro in Brazil at just 15 years old and a second at the San Clemente stop of the US SUP Tour, only to be stopped by an on-fire Sean Poynter. He was a shoe-in for the inaugural Male Rookie of the Year award at the 2013 SUP Awards. As if it needed validating, two days after he took fifth place in the Elite race at Battle of the Paddle. We caught up with him backstage to talk about the importance of family, the future and humility.
