GoPro frees people to celebrate the moment, inspiring others to do the same. From cameras to apps and accessories, everything they do is geared to help you capture life as you live it, share the experience and pass on the stoke. They believe that sharing experiences makes them more meaningful and way more fun.
GoPro was founded in 2002 by Nick Woodman—a surfer, skier and motorsports enthusiast in search of a better way to film himself and his friends surfing. What started with a 35mm camera and a wrist strap made from old wetsuits and plastic scraps has grown into an international company that has sold over 26 million GoPro cameras in more than 100 countries.
But it’s the millions of passionate GoPro users around the globe who bring the magic to life. They humble and inspire the GoPro team every day with incredible creativity that helps them see the world in an all-new way—and fires them up to keep creating the most awesome, innovative products possible.
Surfrider is honored to welcome GoPro into the Surf Industry Coastal Defender program, to share in our mission to protect clean water and healthy beaches for all to enjoy.
