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.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
