The founder and CEO of the extreme sports camera maker GoPro, Nick Woodman, has purchased Hawaiian properties through a company that he owns. This according to public records on the sale uncovered by the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

Two properties in the island paradise were acquired by Woodman: a 31, 000 square foot oceanfront vacant lot for a record $8.5 million and an adjacent 66 year old delapataded house for $925, 000, located on Ke Nui Road fronting the Rocky Point surf break.

Woodman, who recently achieved billionaire status, can be expected to spend a few dollars renovating the house and possibly building on the lot. He is also an avid surfer and so will probably spend a great deal of time at what may be his new vacation home.

At age 38, Nicholas Woodman is a native of California and a self-made billionaire. He conceived the idea for GoPro when attempting to take pictures of surfers. It was too difficult to photograph such fast moving action with traditional cameras and so he developed a belt that would attach the camera to the body

Based in San Mateo, California, GoPro recently file for an IPO that is expected to raise up to $1 billion.
