Drones and VR give pro surf league fans beachside views

The World Surf League is experimenting with drones, live streaming video and virtual reality to build viewership and increase fan engagement.

The goal is to provide 360-degree experiences using virtual reality (VR) headsets, or 360-degree camera views on desktops or in the mobile app. Viewers would, for example, be able to watch competitions from a seat on a beach, or from the perspective of a surfer, by wearing a VR headset.
