FPV: Surfing in Chile


FPV vs SURF - Chile


With more than 6,000 kilometers (3728 miles) of Pacific Ocean shoreline, Chile is a popular destination for surfers around the world. Due to the cold in certain parts of the country, wetsuits, like the ones you’ll see in this drone video by prisvanrees, are needed for surfers to stay warm. In this killer FPV edit, the pilot takes us dangerously close to the waves, seemingly getting very close to losing his quad to the ocean. It’s a fun, exciting edit with some of the tightest shots a pilot can get while tracking surfers.
