Video: Mo Freitas is Mo-ing Up
Is Mo Freitas bionic? His surfing alone begs that question; it’s near supernatural, as depicted in this edit from his winter spent SUP surfing at home in Hawaii. But Mo’s humanity is questionable beyond the paddle. He suffered a broken pelvis mere weeks before the first competition of the 2015 season, the Sunset Beach Pro, went on to compete anyway, and surfed like a man whose pelvis was perfectly intact. In fact, Mo manhandled double-overhead Sunset conditions in a manner only Mo can manage. Maybe Mo’s an alien. Maybe Mo’s just Mo. Regardless, his edits—this one with fellow Standup World Tour competitor, Giorgio Gomez—provide a welcomed and well-spent break from your workweek.
