Here is a clip of our recent trip up the West coast. The quality is a bit bad, but I'll upload a better version at a later stage. Enjoy.

Getting a good GoPro clip is hard. There are so many things that can go wrong. Your fingers get in front of the lens, you don't press the record button correctly, you drop the GoPro, water splashes on the lens, etc. I now really respect those surfers who churn out quality GoPro clips week after week. They know what they are doing.

I have only filmed a few sessions, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. The waves have not been too great for filming, but I have managed to get a couple keeper clips.
Here is a quick barrel from yesterday morning at the local. (Watch the HD version on vimeo if you want better quality)

I have been trying to nail some barrels on film with the GoPro. The waves didn't play along today, but I got a few little semi use able clips.
