Expect to see a lot less GoPro videos and sponsored athletes, events etc.

Hope Abe is retained.

Thanks Rambo, I'm still around. Changing roles to Sr. Creative Director of media overseeing the launch video assets as well as imparting my opinion monthly on all aspects of engineering and product dev. No bueno to see so many great people leave, but it seems as though that's business.

Awesome Abe, having been there from the beginning and instrumental in the success, you deserve promotion and security, and it helps to be good mates with Nick too...lol. I remember the "one big family" feeling that was GoPro, back when i first met yourself, Nick and Hoost in 2010 at Half Moon Bay HQs, so i share your sadness with any losses.

Keep the good ship sailing mate.
