yeah I actually plan on changing that segment with the three blocks. I put it in there for the draft just to experiment with it.

Lighting... yeah, not much ya can do about that

I actually used the chest strap mount, not the helmet mount. There are a few clips that were shot with the wide-angle 1080p setting, but most of the footage was shot using the 960p tall setting. Wish I would've used that setting exclusively, because the footage turned out so much better. I had to scrap a bunch of the wide-angle stuff just because it didn't look interesting enough. Otherwise, the angle was a little bit off, on account of being chest-mounted. I think I can fix that if I use a swivel/extension arm on the mount, but I had left those at the condo that day. All-in-all, turned out OK I think.

Woodward and the park. I don't ride park but my 11 year old is trying to get a good run down for the slope style competition next weekend. My son wears a turquoise blue coat, go-pro on his head and catches a lot of eyes as he just SKIES over the jumps they put on the race hill.

My 8 year old was working on getting enough balls to hit that giant up-sloped box...

I have an all gray coat with greenish pants.

Did your son have green pants? I remember a kid with a GoPro getting air on the big air course.

By the way, I remember an older guy running through that big air course too. Just mini airing over the knuckle part of the second jump.

Nope, black. This was from a while ago:



He is working on his 360s but he is farther along than his friends. He needs one of you guys to tell him what he is doing wrong. I wish I was this good at 11

He ain't getting that tip from me lol. Those jumps are bigger than what I hit and I don't spin. I'm older and started the sport late too.

Yes, I remember your son now. I was thinking of a bigger kid that had green pants, turquoise/black stripe jacket.

I believe I saw your son there before they fully built those jumps a couple weeks ago. Those jumps were just big rollers before. Am I correct he was out there? There aren't too many kids with gopros hitting that line.

Probably. We have been out there almost every Wednesday, Friday, Sunday this year.

Every year we play hooky on my birthday. This year it rained, so were blowing off work and school and spending all Wednesday there. A reward for getting excellent grades and he can work on his run.

Sweet. Give me a shout if you see me one of these days. I'll look out for ya too. I'm usually wearing bright red jacket with jean design pants or a burgundy jacket with dark khaki.

Always white goggle and black helmet and some mask.
