I totally agree. There is no good way to see body movements, etc, from a POV shot. Your best chance is a pole mount and the 960 or whatever TALL angle so your whole body can be seen. When I got my GoPro, I was wondering what in the hell I would use that weird 9xx resolution for... and self shots on the pole are absolutely it. The 1080 or 720 modes are all wide, so very good when being shot from a 3rd person, but not good on a pole. You cant really see the board unless it is held at a high angle pointing down at you. With the 9xx resolution, you get a way better full body shot when mounted on a pole either ahead or behind you.
