“We were just kind of warming up the site with this one,” says Taylor Steele, regarding Innersection’s casual GoPro round this month. “But it was nice to get some tubes.” The competition featured one-minute entries using only GoPro camera footage, so obviously there was a solid dose of tunnel time.
“The Innersection site was dormant,” continues Taylor, “and GoPro is giving away everything they make to one person every single day of the year, so we figured we’d see who wanted to upgrade their whole GoPro setups. It was all real laid-back.”
Other finalists included Outer Banks standout Noah Snyder, Santa Cruz firefighter Mike Golder, 13-year-old Hawaiian grom Joel Schock and Aussie tube-hunter Anthony Walsh. All were awarded a package of everything GoPro makes, including the new LCD Bacpac viewfinder, which finally allows you to see what you’re filming.
The first real round of Innersection starts up April 1st. In the meantime, bros be getting tubed, and filming the shoots out of it. Here’s a quick vid from the Top Five submissions. —Nathan MyersInnersection GoPro Round Top Five video
