I did some of the initial surf testing for GoPro, and was the first surfer to use the HD Hero. The company wanted feedback and marketing images from me. Back then (5 years ago), GoPro was a small company trying to break through. Now you can’t turn around without seeing an ad or someone wearing one. They have even grown big enough to have the ability to sponsor pro’s like Kelly Slater.
I haven’t used GoPro cameras since we stopped working together. Most Hungry Walrus content is comprised of images from Canon cameras and my iPhone.
