    GoPRo

    So I got a gopro. Hero 3 white edition. Just want some opinions on the best place to mount it for surfing? On board facing forwards/backwards, or a chest harness? Wrist? Mounted on a handle?

    If I recall, the mount itself will allow for the GoPro to point either direction. Personally, it's more fun with it pointed at the person on the board. Play around with that and have fun. I would advise on getting the remote but it gets a little pricey. It saves a bunch of commotion up at the nose while you are trying to take off. You'll need the remote and the wifi backpack as the cam itself is not wifi-enabled. I found out the hard way by buying the remote and realizing later that I needed the backpack. Dope.

    you might want to consider your facial expressions too - I had a hard time with it - should I point it in and smile , looks serious or just look terrified - please help

    yeah if you put the mount on the front of your board you can either turn the camera forwards or backwards. I've only had it backwards, but that was more for learning and critiquing more than anything. I keep forgetting to take it with me but I want to try it facing forwards a couple times. When I have had it facing me I'm not able to focus on the ocean because I'm thinking about if I should turn it off while waiting for a set or am I going to look good or bad on the wave, am I going to get enough waves for a video, etc.

    If I wasn't saving for a new board I would be saving for a gopro. I would use that thing every single day. In or out of the water.

    Yeah I just ordered the floaty backdoor for it so I won't lose it on the bottom of the ocean. I'm going to start with the surfboard mount and the handlebar mount so I can rig up a pole mount. And probably a grenade handle so I can just swim around and get some cool shots while handplaning.
