Freediving with our cetacean friends in the South Pacific. I heard from a researcher that specific whale songs originate in the Antarctic and travel across deep acoustic channels around the world, echoed from population to population. Until finally, a year later, the same song can be heard again in the same Antarctic waters it originated from. @bananimalllll @flounderscottsaville @melsamahoney

It’s World Wildlife Day! @gopro is celebrating ‘Let The Tiger Go’ today to help raise funds for @pantheracats and Tambling. This was a frame grab from a #gopro we mounted on a Sumatran tiger after a medical exam in Tambling’s rehabilitation center. This might be one of the first tiger POV shots I’ve ever seen? Huge thanks to all the people that made this film actually happen, especially @demit (who tirelessly feed this beast for months with his magic) @catadromous @margaret_rosalie @taylorjohnturner @jacipastore @beccaelizabeth91 All the best to everyone on #worldwildlifeday

The time has come. It's been a magical ride with this wild man behind the wheel. He is one of the best humans I know and believed in me since day one. He empowered us all with a tiny camera. I never imagined GoPro would reach as many people as it has. The idea grew bigger than any one person and took on a life of its own. I am awestruck by all of you that made this movement happen - the artists, the creators, the athletes, the engineers, everyone... I am humbled and inspired by you, my GoPro family. I'm beyond grateful to all of you. You taught me work should be fun, but not easy. You taught me eternal optimism. You taught me how to be a leader. You taught me that mistakes are part of progress. You taught me how to see over the tops of the trees when you are lost in the woods. You taught me how to compromise, but never settle. You taught me that helping others create can be more rewarding than creating something yourself. You taught me there are an infinite amount of stories yet to be told. You taught that I have a lot to give. You taught me that the road ahead is bright.

‘Let the Tiger Go’ was finally released today! The story of Muli, the rescue cub who we released in August, was a film project almost 2 years in the making with @pantheracats @alan_rabinowitz @gopro and Tambling. The biggest gratitude goes to @demit who had the precise finesse of an artist and the tireless endurance of a marathon runner on this edit and @margaret_rosalie really brought this story home. @taylorjohnturner you are an inspiration and so happy we got to collaborate on this one. @jacipastore you made it happen from the beginning - hope you and @beccaaguilar1 like it! @ryankontra so thankful you were at the release with me - couldn’t have shot it without you. @nickianjohnson your ears are 👌🏽 And @catadromous ... the weave you started is finally finished!!!

“If we lived for 500 years, would we behave the way we’re behaving?” - Captain Martin Daly @indiestrader lends his wisdom on exploration from years of pioneering surf breaks in the most remote parts of the world. We had the honor to work with this inspirational man on our new @gopro #hero6 story ‘Discovering the Mentawais’ which just released today. @ryankontra @abekislevitz @anthony_walsh_ @mikalajones__ @kai_lenny @tatiwest @flickpalmateer @marlon.gerber @michaelbschwab @apotts @jonny_bizzle @jcosso @brieparks

Almost nine years ago she invited me to a special place in Baja for thanksgiving with her family. We kissed for the first time under those stars and that’s where I asked Anna to marry me. Every day I am more in love with this fiery, hilarious, beautiful, and magical woman and I can’t believe how fortunate I am to spend the rest of my life with her!!! #theschmidthoffs
