World Surf League attempts to declare ‘no drone zone’
“To suggest that they have the authority to vet applicants and approve or deny permits is a power move, meant to intimidate people into compliance with their desires. Which, you know, annoys the hell out of me. Especially considering the ridiculous amount of special treatment they get from the Honolulu Dept of Parks and Rec in the form of the illegal variances granted for the Pipe contest every year.”

Growing up in Hawaii, Eric Sterman fell in love with the Pacific Ocean and surfing. One day he saw a drone in Bali with a camera on it and something clicked. He set out to become the best surf-drone-cameraman around, and with 60k+ followers on Instagram, he is well on his way. His work has gone viral all across the Internet.
