Who is the super slick dude gliding across the most pristine, glassy water ever? It’s Collin Harrington, of course. If you know Collin, you know he’s the perfect combination of laidback shredder and GoPro master, and it’s awesome to see him featured prominently in the Million Dollar Challenge highlight video.

We caught up with Collin to see what inspired the Million Dollar clip he captured on HERO8 Black.

GoPro: When did you first start using GoPro?

Collin: 2008 

What’s your day job?


You can check out his website here.

How did you hear about the MDC?

GoPro’s social channels.

What inspired your awarded clip?

I had that shot in mind, so I flew to Florida to get it. 

What are you going to put the earnings toward?

Buy more camera gear.

Would you participate again in the future?


We turned to Collin’s Instagram to find some closing thoughts: “Congrats to everyone who made it in and submitted clips for the #gopromilliondollarchallenge. And a round of applause to the crew at @gopro for making such amazing tiny cameras!!! Stoked to get one of the most glassy days I’ve ever had on a wakeboard in the video!”

Congratulations, Collin! We hope to see more footage of you ripping.
