Lolz. So pole from your own hand. What if your in the park? You still think its the best way?

In my opinion, pole mount trumps all. Follow footage is excellent because you can stay a bit back but get the close up you want. Self shots end up looking great. It's just a nice way to go about it. The downside to the pole is the weight. I have a Go-Pole and found it to be heavy the first day of riding. By day 3 I was used to it and I didn't think about it anymore.

Take it all with a grain of salt. Everyone has their preference.
What were you riding? Groomers? Park? Pow Pow?
