jdang307 I'm not that good but I film on my trips away. I wouldn't film at Mt High or Bear though

It's for memories and I ain't going to share publicly. But I'm no longer doing the pole in front of me. Just holding the gopro in the hand or filming my friends.

Kevin137 The only positive to having a camera in one hand when you fall like that, is that you only have 1 other hand to put in front of you and risk breaking...!!!

I would keep the videos personal for now, and wait till you are a bit better...

I do have a few vids, but are generally of others, and not of myself, and my stepson, when we do little edits for him and his season edit...

I understand the need to film though, i have every trip i ever took from the 1st time i stood on a snowboard 7 years ago to date, and that is probably about 4TB of footage, most of it 99% is absolute shit... And would never see the light of day, but it is habit to film for me, and occasionally we get good footage from 1 run or even a whole day of good footage...

Nowadays it is definitely more about just having that funny moment on video though when someone does something really stupid, i also film everything in the car, dash cam has saved my arse many a time, and saved a fortune. So while i may look stupid, i will keep recording... Haha

Just so you know that I am not just busting your balls for kicks,.. I did the same thing and posted a few really,.. REALLY lame vids of myself my first season or so. Being an "Old Fart" and quite frankly pretty amazed that I was able to be doing this at all, I was soooo proud of my lame little one inch ollies and painfully awkward & slow Midwest Blue runs, etc! LOL! Took a little grief for those clips too.

...HiYa SK!

I will even admit to doing the whole Gapper,... "Is it on? Can you see the light? Is it blinking" schtick before I realized just how incredibly STUPID a person looks and sounds asking that!


...For me, now, I mostly use those lame clips to help other newbs when they post here that they are worried that they will never "get it!" I can show them how awkward & clumsy you can be in those first few weeks or months, and how quickly you can get comfortably proficient in the basics once it "clicks!"

I do like the fact that I have a pretty decent video record of my progression, but unless and until I can get some footage of myself involved in some RAD riding or some truly deep and epic POW? (...still a ways off btw,) I've decided to limit my public video postings on the forum to those of asking for critiques on my technique and/or sharing my painful learning experiences with other newbs!



...still, it was a pretty funny fail! Ice and Advil!

Yeah I have to admit it was a pretty epic fail LOL! But thanks for reply!

BigmountainVMD I couldn't believe how many gapers and even more experienced people were rocking 1 if not 2 go pros during christmas vacation at Heavenly. The trails were so crowded... the only reason I could think of to wear them was for lawsuits when some fucker ran in to you at 50 mph.

BurtonAvenger Ugh another person with a camera pointed at them that is paying too much attention to it and not their inability to ride. Next time just ride into a rail full speed, snap your femur, and never ride or upload your video again.

Anyway, gotta agree with Klinger here. Learn to ride before sticking a camera in our face while riding what appears to be a green(?) trail.
