We’re just seven days away from one of this year’s biggest (and certainly the most lucrative) SUP races: The Payette River Games. From June 20-22, thousands of people will descend on the little town of Cascade, Idaho for a weekend of fun on and off the river.
The cool thing about the Payette River Games is that it’s not just a SUP race, it’s an entire festival… There are about 20 different events to get involved in. So far I’ve signed up to compete in:
– Elite SUP Cross
– Elite SUP Sprint
– Longboard SUP Race
– Team Raft Cross (I’m partnered with Fernando Stalla, god help me)
– Lumberjack Axe Throw
– Log Rolling
And if I can find a furry volunteer I might even throw my hat into the dog fetch ring…
In short: The Payette River Games is going to be a grand spectacle.
Add in the likes of Jamie Mitchell, Travis Grant, Kai Lenny, Candice Appleby, Slater Trout and a dozen other very big names and you can see it’s going to be a rather fun weekend.
Oh and the whole thing will be webcast live and streamed here on SUPracer.com all weekend.
Don’t miss it.
