    iPhone waterproof case

    Anyone have any experience bringing an iphone in the water? The Camera on the 4S is so amazing, I'd like to see if i can get some cool footage without having to invest in a Camera. I was thinking this case but bringing such an expensive device in the water, I'd rather know it was either created or tested for surfing

    Without knowing anything about that case, I'd say no way. It is not water proof and for that price it never will be...

    "Water Resistant"

    That lifeproof case was pretty amazing. I've been thinking about getting one and that may make my decision..... But do I really want to have my phone with me when I'm surfing???

    ive been looking at getting the lifeproof case for my iphone4s just for the boat and i think they would be worth it if only the seals would last a lot longer or if the seals can be replaced.

    i have a life proof case, i have never taken it surfing but my friends have taken theres they say it works perfectly and they got cool footage but if they dropped their phoen while paddling (paddles with it in their mouth) they would have been screwed, i personally love the case, its water resistent but you must test it first and make sure you follow the correct instructions i also feel that you can not keep taking the case on and off because it ruins the case and does not allow it to close all the way. The case is really durable i keep it snowboarding with me all the time and the countless times my phone as been slammed against a rail for landing badly or wiping out of a jump but its super study, defiently worth the purchase, i just feel bringing your iphone in the ocean is super risky.

    The lifeproof might work, but I still wouldnt risk my iPhone.

    Just sac up with another $200 and get a GoPro.
