GoPro, the company that began as a wrist camera for surfing and now produces some of today's most engaging content, reaches the pinnacle of the sport by welcoming Kelly Slater, 11-time World Surfing Champion, to its team of athletes.
"I'm stoked. I've had a lot of fun with the GoPro camera and in just the few sessions I've had so far with it, I've gotten more images than I have in a long time," said Slater.
"Working with Kelly takes me back to why I started GoPro," says GoPro's Founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. "We began as a wrist camera for surfing company with a vision to help the average surfer capture photos that made him or her look like a pro...like Kelly Slater. Now GoPro is helping Kelly, himself, capture and share his own experience with fans around the world and it's blowing my mind. I guess this whole GoPro thing is kind of working out."
