RIVER SURFING

2015 Payette River Games

Surf The Wave In The Mountains…

So you thought you had to travel far distances to an Ocean to surf or to watch surfing. Well travel no more and come up to Cascade, Idaho and experience some of the best river surfing and surfers in the world.

Led by Cascade’s very own David Allan, who has surfed more on Kelly’s Wave than anyone, we welcome surfers to compete in our second River Surfing Competition.

All river surfing athletes will vote for the other athletes and the winner will be the one with the most athlete votes. There will be no other judges and we invite an aloha spirit to the games.

For all you landlocked surfers you will find a big glassy wave at Kelly’s in a town reminiscent of an old American Western movie. Picture a pristine and warm river (70-75 degrees) meandering through the town of Cascade, Idaho adjacent to green pasture land in the foreground surrounded by rugged snow capped mountains.

We will have 2 competitions, an elite and also and open for the less experienced surfer.

ELITE DIVISION

If you think you’ve got the skills to compete with some of the world’s best river surfers, challenge yourself with the Payette River Games Elite River Surfing competition.

With $4,000 total prize purse (split evenly for men and women – see the full break down below), this should be one of the most entertaining events of the weekend for spectators and competitors alike…

FUN DIVISION

If you’re more of a beginner but just want to get your feet wet and try surfing the river wave at Kelly’s, jump in to our novice division.

This is for surfers who are confident about entering the wave and getting to their feet but perhaps aren’t ready for a 360 air just yet…

Come one come all. Give it a try. We’ve got plenty of fun prizes to give away!

100% of your entry payments go directly to our non-profit host – Kelly’s Whitewater Park. Every dollar you spend will help the park remain open and free for everyone, including our special free kids clinics. So join us for the funnest weekend on the paddling calendar and support a great cause at the same time!
