Video | Payette River Games Domination | Mo Freitas
By now you know that the Payette River Games was one of the most celebrated events of 2015. The athletes love it, the spectators love it, the media loves it. It’s because it’s a well-run event, one that is challenging, fresh and different. It tests the athletes in ways many of them have not experienced before.
That includes Mo Freitas, the Oahu phenom, who went on to win the event. This was his first competition on the river but thanks to his athleticism, the tiny boards he rides in the surf and his ability to adapt, Freitas put on a show at Kelly’s Whitewater Park, winning both the SUPer G and the SUP Xross over many more seasoned river competitors and ocean racers alike. All the evidence you need is in this video.
