Need to start your day over? How about a push to motivate you through Hump Day? Turn up the volume (you may want to put in headphones) and take a ride with Mo Freitas from Focus SUP Hawaii in a new video that will get your pulse rising!

Footwork, Transitions & Big Drops:  That’s Mo Freitas!

Focus SUP  team rider Mo Freitas is no ordinary charger.  Mo puts in the time, the energy and the performance into every ride he takes to really light up the surf.  One of the most talented multi disciplined water athletes on the planet today, Mo is enthralling to watch either in the surf or on the stand up paddle race course.  In this new video by Modern Productions, keep an eye on his footwork, watch his smooth transition from rail to rail and the casual way Mo drops in to monster size waves in his home break in Hawaii.

We, at Standup Journal, celebrate young athletes like this who put themselves on the line every day to maximize their performance and push the boundaries of this sport even further.

Charge ON, Mo!  It sure is fun bearing witness to the journey.
