Not everyone has the skill and ability to have a pro surfing experience, making the GoPro VR simulation an ideal platform for GoPro owners to share their content and allow others to live through it vicariously using virtual reality. The platform allows consumers that own a GoPro to share their sporting content filmed in 360-degree footage using the Omi GoPro device. The immersive 360-film footage gives viewers an immersive experience from the comfort of their own home.

The GoPro VR experience will encompass sound and video to allow consumers to live daring and extreme sporting experiences in a variety of locations and settings around the world. The content is crowdsourced through fellow GoPro owners, allowing users to sift through thousands of videos to find one they like.
