GoPro CEO making moves on oceanfront North Shore Oahu properties


GoPro's founder and CEO Nick Woodman, who purchased oceanfront properties near Sunset Beach on Oahu's North Shore in 2014, has since made some moves on his property, according to public documents.
Late last year, Woodman, who has a net worth of nearly $950 million, was given the approval from city regulators to build a fence and gate at the front of his property on Ke Nui Road in Haleiwa.
Woodman's company paid $8.5 million for that 31,285-square-foot property, and a 5,000-square-foot adjacent property for nearly $1 million, according to property tax records.
In 2015, Woodman was given the approval from the city to demolish the home, which was built in 1947, on that 5,000-square-foot property.
It's not quite clear yet what Woodman plans to do with his Haleiwa properties, although at least one home could be in the works.
The 41-year-old surfer from California founded the action camera manufacturing company in 2002, which has more than 1,000 employees. In 2015, the San Mateo-based company reported total assets of $1.1 billion.
