GoPro Athlete Kelly Slater Dominates 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro


GoPro athlete and living legend Kelly Slater has done it yet again, winning the 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro for the second year in a row.

In pumping six- to eight-foot waves, Slater took charge on the final day of competition, posting a perfect 20-point score against Sebastian Zeitz in the quarterfinals, and following it up with a win over John John Florence in the Semis.
The 41-year-old Slater met Mick Fanning in the Finals, where he posted a near-flawless score of 19.80, giving him the win and punctuation on a historical day.

Slater’s 20-point score in the Quarterfinals is only the fourth on record in the ASP, and only the second of the veteran’s career. With this win, Slater now finds himself at the top of the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) standings.

Congratulations, Kelly!

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

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
