    dude those things suck...we took one to NC last year and it didnt last a week! Wrist strap broke, the "watertight" housing wasnt that watertight, and the batteries last like 20mins.
    Good idea and all just need to refine the product. We took it back to Kcoast and got the money back...better off hiring a photog haha wheres Sinkle when u need him?

    GoPro

    I had bought one for a trip to Costa Rica last year. It worked fine for the whole week but i mostly used it for rain-forest zip-lines and rappelling and not much surfing. Unfortunately, I lost it either on the way to the airport, at the airport, or on the plane ride home so I cant speak for the quality of the images and video. I did manage to get some awesome video of Europeans walking around the beach in speed-os.

    Anyway, i'd be interested in getting a replacement if the price was good enough

    i have one, surfed with it. the thing sucks... i agree with all the above comments: battery life 20 minutes and the housing makes the pics uber soft.

    i decided to spend just a bit more and i purchased an olympus 7mp waterproof camera, it takes beautiful clear shots with no housing. i also purchased a sticky pod mount so i can take point of view video while surfing/snowboarding.
