Countdown To Idaho: 7 Days ‘Til The Payette River Games (Here’s Last Year’s Highlights Reel To Get You Amped)

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.
