So if you're not willing to put some skin in the game, we're not willing to help.

For reference, here are a couple of threads, one where the surveyor cooperated, and one where he didn't.

Thank you very much for your input. I can understand the rules and skepticism if you're constantly bombarded by requests for surveys which is unfortunate that this happens. There are research reports in which real companies should be able to acquire from orgs like SIA.

As for myself, I've been boarding for 17 years. I still have my first board, a 56 Rippey from '98. At the same time, shooting video has always been a part of my life. My undergrad major was in film production after all.

This particular class is a part of a masters in business admin. It's specifically meant to teach whether a new business is viable. I'd say it's a fairly useful class given the statistics that a significant % of new business fail before year 5.

As for this particular endeavor, I'm not at the point where I have a full presentation or video ready. This is very ground level. However I can say that I'm like to develop a device that can acquire footage like this link that is easy to use. Crazy Aerial Video of Mountain Bike Jumps! - YouTube

When I get a bit more time today, I can shed some more light on these types of surveys since there's seems to be somewhat of a mis-understanding of their purpose or usage.

I hope that this is sufficient for now.

GoPro Camera Users - your opinion is needed! (Contour or other users ok!)

Hello all,

I'm currently conducting a survey for a graduate school project. It's geared toward those that use cameras and action sports. If you can do me the huge favor of filling out this short 15 question survey, it would be very much appreciated.

I wish I had something to offer you guys, but I'm a starving student. Hopefully sharing my experiences on this forum will be sufficient.

Thanks!!
