Hang Ten, Fido! GoPro Heads to the Surf Dog Competition
Paws on the noes! GoPro is gearing up to bring a brand new point of view to the sport of surfing this weekend at the 9th annual Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon at Del Mar Beach. More than 80 four-legged “athletes” are scheduled to compete and GoPro will be there to capture all the action with our new accessory Fetch, our first mount designed specifically for pets. Engineered with two mount locations- one on the back and one on the chest – Fetch is the perfect tool to catch some awesome waves with the dogs participating in the event this Sunday, September 7.
Look out for Abbie - an Australian Kelpie, previous Surf Dog winner and Guinness World Record holder for longest wave surfed - wearing the Fetch mount to capture her POV during the event. Check out a sneak peak of her shredding skills during a recent practice session!
Stay tuned for footage from the day, and for more from Abbie and other Surf Dog competitors! And if you’re in the Southern California area, grab your dog and head to Del Mar on Sunday to capture the event through your dog’s eyes with Fetch!
