Feb 5, 2013 — Our collective cry for help has been answered by GoPro. This morning, the International Bodyboarding Association (IBA) announced that GoPro was the naming sponsor for the 2013 Pipe Challenge, as well as partnering up for the upcoming Grand Slam Series of Bodyboarding.
This is a huge victory for the bodyboarding community and a hugely positive step to revitalizing its competitiveness. Nicholas Woodman, GoPro CEO, issued this statement this morning.
"It’s on. We are doing this thanks to you, your passion for your sport and your longstanding support of GoPro. You’ve been with us since the early days and we are stoked to return the favor. We are honestly blown away by your open hearted stoke for GoPro and cannot wait to share some waves with you at Pipe or wherever else our paths may cross in the water. It is awesome that you thought of us to help in this way and we are fired up to deliver! Hi5s all the way around from Nick and everyone at GoPro."
Thank you, each and every one of you!
