Nick Woodman (born Nicholas Woodman) is the founder and CEO of GoPro.[1]

Woodman said he was inspired to start the company GoPro following a 2002 Australia surfing trip in which he was hoping to capture quality action photos of his surfing, but could not because amateur photographers could not get close enough, or obtain quality equipment at accessible prices. His desire for a camera system that could capture the professional angles inspired the 'GoPro' name.[2][3]
