    If you mean nose mounted gopro pointed back towards the surfer, i think the shots they get are the worst part. The videos are worse. With the camera fixed on the board, perspective is lost...the board and rider remain fixed while the wave moves back and forth behind the fixed foreground.

    What Erock and pumpmaster said.

    Thank your Dad for taking such good pics. Looks like your on the right track, as mentioned earlier, keep your head facing the direction you want to go. I wish i could get one of my friends to take a sequence of shots like that for me, so i could see where i need to improve. Those 4 shots will help your surfing tremendously, as well as, advice from some of the guys on this forum. Great thread!

This will put more weight on your back foot so you can pivot better and get a little more rail in the water.
    thanks to all of you. definitely will be keeping this in mind

    This reminds me... This weekend in the line-up, I saw someone who was turning his head in more directions than he was doing actual turns. I mean he's going down the line but his head was moving as if from a recoil reaction to his turns, except that he was not doing any turns at all. No harm done, except that it looked like a really bad habit, and was not aesthetically pleasing at all.
