By Community | March 26, 2013
mophie, developer of accessories that allow consumers do more with their portable devices, today announced it has signed on as a sponsor at the upcoming Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, the longest running surf contest in the world, being held at Torquay, Australia, which runs from March 27 to April 7.
mophie’s sponsorship further demonstrates its commitment to the art and sport of surfing, providing riders with the ability to capture every tube ride, cutback and bottom turn of the competition with its OutRidesolution, a wide-angle, waterproof mounting system for the iPhone that eliminates the need for a dedicated action sports camera.
“The Rip Curl is an iconic platform for us to gain global exposure for the OutRide iPhone mounting system and add international footage to the community sharing video using the OUTRIDE app,” said Ross Howe, vice president of marketing, mophie. “Our company has grown up in the surf community of southern California and it’s fitting that we have a presence at this legendary event.”
While contestants at the competition vie for the chance to “ring the bell,” mophie OutRide cameras will be used to capture exclusive shots from the skis in the water, giving online Rip Curl Pro viewers an OutRide perspective of the action taking place.
