    I was going to use a head strap for a POV porno


    ... But anyways I work for CB Ocean rescue so there's definitely some potential for good shots

    I like SS's idea of trading if off. Someone sit off to the shoulder in the flats... SOOOOOO much better footage. It looks really good even if you float outside the lineup and get shots from behind the wave. The spray and stuff looks cool....

    Just please, please please please, take those things out on a good day. I see so many kids and even grown arse men out these days when it's waist high and they have the go-pros going. Pick your battles.....

    And yeah, it's hard to tell whats going on with the mounts sometimes... But if you get a homie to film you, it will shed light on your surfing in a completely different way.

    Read Taj Burrows book. He said it best. He admitted, the first time you get video footage back, you think you are out there ripping. Then you see it, and it's the most dissapointing thing ever. The only way to really dial your style in is to see it from everyone else's angle... It educational, put please spare us of the knee high slop on camera. Practice it whenever you want, just don't post it.

    point it anywhere but at yourself. the only person who wants to look at your face in a video for more than 4 seconds is your mother and even she has her limits.

    Yeah I'm not really a fan of the face shots of people surfing. The only time it really looks cool is in the barrel but even then other shots would look way cooler.


    Edit:Just ordered the bar mount,floaty backdoor, surfboard mounts, and POV Dive buoy floating handle. I'm going to rig a longer pole mount out of an old lacrosse shaft. The stoke is real high right now.

    Good idea. I mounted a borrowed Gopro on the nose of my board. Not a flattering camera angle on a sponge, let me tell you.

    Kinda true. GoPro videos are best when they make the viewer feel like they're in the action so pointing it forward, at least for the majority of the time would be better.

    If you want a deal on some GoPro accessories (gopole) shoot me a PM.

    I'm set for a pole I'm rigging my own but I'll ask the other guards to see if anyone wants one.

    I bought my surfboard mounts from amazon ($12). Had to place it a little off center due to the curve of the board but still was able to get a good view. Good shots so far, just need bigger waves in NC. Use 1440 to get more hight of the image then crop it to fit 1080.
