Personally I think 99% of footage sucks from POV cameras. The pole mount isn't bad but that gets boring too. Best usage of it is to film your buddies. I have a helmet mount and act as a "chase cam" for people I'm riding with.
If you're playing in the park, set it up on a tripod near a jump and keep going over that same jump.
One thing my GF likes is getting to see different parts of the mountain I hit when we split up, but she's probably the only person that wants to see my POV footage.
