I have a major problem. I’m stuck in the office—in front of my computer—bouncing between painfully boring Excel spreadsheets and sipping mediocre instant coffee because I’m too lazy to brew a proper pot.
It’s a typical shitty Wednesday, and watching this GoPro skate trip through Greece (above) just reminded me that there’s a whole world out there. Technicolor and all. One that I’m ignoring so that I can earn a paycheck to buy more garbage coffee to get me through the day. Yes, I am gainfully employed for a wonderful company (please don’t fire me) but I’m not living my life to its full potential. Huge problem.
This is an honest plea to GoPro’s HR department to hire me. Not as a skater, not as a writer or marketing genius. Just as a professional hanger-outer or hype man like Kid Rock’s little sidekick, Joe C. I’m sick of watching your epic trips from the sidelines. Please save me and take me with you.
Ok, now that I’ve officially embarrassed myself and let the world in on my existential crisis, onto the details…
The whole GoPro skate team embarked on a two-week journey through Greece to explore the country and hit as many spots as possible. Cruising around with 10+ people is never easy, but then again, GoPro trips aren’t your average skate tours. As filmer Chris Ray says, “We’ve traveled the world multiple times, but GoPro trips are always different. It was amazing to not only skate Greece, but to explore the beautiful culture.”
Featuring Sean Malto, Curren Caples, Alex Sorgente, Andrew Brophy, Leticia Bufoni, Madars Apse, Sewa Kroetkov and Chris Cole, GoPro’s latest skate vid showcases the versatility and features of the new #GoProHERO7 Black. The #HyperSmooth feature is especially rad and makes filming lines a breeze. The photo quality looks amazing too.
If anyone at GoPro is reading this, please get in touch and send me on your next trip. Otherwise I’ll be living vicariously through the internet, unfulfilled and reminded of my inferior existence. Ok, back to the spreadsheets…
