tokyo_dom BigmountainMVD, i think your lead hand would really get annoying in those videos.
What about chest mount facing sideways?

I once stuck the camera to my board facing forward going down a groomer. Was an interesting video, but my favourite part is when I carved, the adhesive let go and the camera tumbled for a bit, ending up pointing at a sitting snowboarder who had this 'wtf?' look on him.

Favourite shots are with a pole or gogglestrap held by someone else. Unfortunately my wife has not yet managed to work out how to keep me in frame without me just being a spec in the distance.

That's why I like the idea of hip/thigh angle. You don't have to stare at the board the whole time, you can catch your buddies on film while focusing on your own riding, still catch your falls, but not as bumpy as on a board.

I want to see a shot with a go pro attached to the back of a boot/highback or thigh/hip. I think that would be the best for visualizing terrain without all the nonsense of your head turning and bobbing around.

Don't bother. That angles only good for hardpack n groomer shots. First ankle deep pow shot and all you'll be recording is a blackout. I have several of those if you want to see them.

mrtoddyrs The best way to do it is do the same run over and over with your camera in different spots--helmet, board, pole, whatever--and then edit them together to look like you had 3 or 4 cameras on you.

A few weekends I spent an hour and half looking for my damn go pro. I didn't duck enough for a low branch and felt something jerk back.. unstrapped and poked around the trees forever looking for it.
Recored most of it, but the battery died before I found it..
