ASP GoPro Challenge: Portugal Edition


As the Top 34 get warmed up for the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal, the fourth ASP GoPro Challenge has kicked off and submissions are rolling in. The Challenge asks competing ASP pros to submit their own GoPro videos from the contest venue starting two days prior to the contest window and no later than the conclusion of the competition.

The winning video will be selected by a panel of five judges — three ASP staffers and two judges from GoPro — based on the following criteria:

  • Cinematography (25%)
  • Degree of difficulty of shooting (25%)
  • Perspective (25%)
  • Overall beauty and lighting (25%)

The Challenge is open to both WCT men and women at specific tour stops. In addition to Margaret River, Fiji, Tahiti, the Top 34 will have opportunities in Portugal and Hawaii to submit competitive footage.

The winner at each stop receives US$15,000 if the clip was captured during official WCT competition and US$10,000 if it’s from a freesurf during the contest window. In every case, it’s the shooter who wins and not the subject — whether the camera is hand-held, on a board, or elsewhere.

The ASP GoPro Challenge submissions doors have opened for the Moche Rip Curl Pro Portugal, with clips accepted until the end of the event window.
