    I'll probably never use mine on my board, just don't like the attachment, but i'm looking for ways to get use of it since it was a gift from my wife and I feel bad for not using it ever. Anybody use these to just swim underwater and get footage of the sealife?

    I don't have a GoPro, but I think it would be good for filming your friends surf. Could get some good barrel shots if you're paddling out or something.

    Similar situation. I have the used it a few times and got some OK footage but it's got to be either hand held or on the head mount to be any good surfing.

    The coolest footage ever (...lost it on a stolen laptop....) was when we clamped it on my friend's great dane's collar and let him "fight" his mastiff (no mike vick, these dogs live better than I do, they just play around a lot) but the video was effign terrifying.

    go pros can be really fun. i love to use them on downhill bike to analyze lines on runs but for surfing, especially with the board mount, i think the footage looks weak/lame.

    I think surfing animals are lame! I know its not a product, but its dumb. Saw some guy over seas with a damn lama on his board and thought the lama loved it.

    see, that would actually be cool! i guess you've gotta be creative w/ it to make the best use of the thing...the gopro display at the shop where i work has a pretty neat loop that uses footage of makr healey swimming w/ great whites, diving on wrecks, etc...as well as sky divers, base jumpers, car racing, alana blanchard, slater...the list goes on. almost NONE of it features deck-mounted cameras facing the surfer.
    going off of your dog collar idea, i think it would be pretty neat if somoene mounted one to a sea turtle's shell & let it loose. i bet we'd learn a LOT about where they go & what they do from something like that! or someone could put one on mary lee as she cruises the coast!
