When the GoPro cameras hit the market a few years ago I personally was a little sceptical of their value – the product seemed overly bulky, not particularly compatible and completely oversold by all sorts of celebrities. I brushed it off as a fad, thinking the craze would die off pretty quickly…I was very wrong!
GoPros have reduced in size, increased in quality (there is now the Go Pro HERO HD) and they are compatible with loads of adventure sports – conveniently including surfing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking.
To stop this sounding like a GoPro sales pitch here are some videos.
There is something mesmerising about this shot, everything is perfect; wave size, wave shape, no crowds, surroundings. I’ve found myself going back to watch this clip every month or so…probably because I can’t just go and get barrelled in real life…believe me it’s harder than it looks.

And finally our very own JF with the new GoPro we’ve recently bought for NONSTOP, ripping up currie bowl on a powder day.
