i enjoy my gopro but only used it in my hand while i surfed.. never tried any other mounts or angles yet .. check out a video i posted with only the wrist mount ( little disy but still cool ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwPtIk82FY8&
I think they are cool for getting video of friends in the water... If you use it on your board I'd point it forward. If you can get shacked it's seems cool to re-live it. When pointed back at yoursalf it always makes you look like a kook. It makes you look stiff and like you suck. And I've seen that with guys who I know rip. It just doesn't do you justice... But it's cool to pass it around and get video in the water.
Bottom line... If you're a kook you will look like a kook. If you rip and have one on your board you'll get more respect. Nobody wants to see video evidence that they are a kook
