Chuck Patterson Shark Video Shot With GoPro HD HERO Camera

 

Half Moon Bay, CA – Aug 12, 2010 – Yesterday, legendary sportsman Chuck Patterson posted a video to Vimeo that showed the world a new perspective on the interactions between surfers & Great White Sharks – from Chuck’s the Vimeo page:

 

 

“The day before I shot this video, i was SUP surfing with a couple friends and 2 sharks circled us for about 15 minutes. the next day, i decided to go back out at around the same time and take my GO PRO HD HERO camera mounted (with the GoPro handlebar mount) on a 10 ft pole and do some exploring. Sure enough within 5 minutes a 9 ft shark came out of no where and circled twice and slapped his tail on my board before disappearing. then a minute later a 7 ft young juvenile Great White swam circles around me for 12 minutes. It was an unreal experience that I will cherish forever. chuckpattersonsports.com

 

Unreal.

 

Thank you for taking GoPro along for your exploration & sharing it with the world, Chuck!

 

We’re all blown away.

Testimonials

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3
