GoPro Athlete Ryan Sheckler Wins Dew Tour Street Style

GoPro would like to congratulate Ryan Sheckler on his Street Style win at Dew Tour's Toyota City Championships this weekend in San Francisco. With a dominating 90-point performance, Shecks sealed the victory for the second year in a row.

The one-of-a-kind course pairs real street-style barriers, rails, and benches with one-off obstacles like shipping containers, cars, and flatbeds, all on a downhill run. Undoubtedly, Sheckler found the setup agreeable and he quickly found his comfort zone. 

After putting together a top-of-the-podium run, Sheckler put a crescendo on the day by stomping a monster kickflip off the shipping container on his victory lap. 

Nice work, Shecks.

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
