“I mostly shoot action sports like snowboarding, skiing, skating, MTB and surfing. I've been using SanDisk products for all my cameras, GoPros and even drones. The most important qualities of SanDisk memory cards for me are speed and durability. I often work in the harshest weather conditions as well as underwater. It’s essential for me not to loose the shots I take, and I can rely on SanDisk every time.”
