Off Season GoPro thread

I know ALOT of you have GoPros that you use for snowboarding, and I am sure that you use them off the mountain aswell.

So post your own gopro (or Contour, etc) videos of everything away from the mountains here!

edit: As far as I know this kind of thread doesnt exist here, if it does please just delete this.

Here is a vid I made from a weekend motorcycle trip I took in New Hampshire 2 weeks ago.

It was simply amazing... great friends, great weather, great roads, great scenery, etc.

We trailered our bikes up, rode 430 miles of pure twisty, scenic, no highway roads in 2 days. Then some of us rode 200 miles back home on the 3rd day.

This was contour footie from way back in like April maybe... The Countour has basically been a piece of shit for me on a mountain bike I think it just jars it too much and the battery goes loose and it turns off. Didn't have much luck with the gopro, either... helmet was too shaky and despite a few different attempts I couldn't dial in the right perspective/angle on the chest strap and all the footage is just staring down at the top-tube or my crotch or the handlebars.

Well, let's see.... we just used ours for zipling. Rigged up a mount on our shoe and helmet and it worked great. We have made a waterski handle and put it on the handle and that worked great. We have used the surfboard suction cup and that has worked. We put it on the paddle while paddleboarding also. Used on our motorcycle, on the car for autocrossing. On the kayak. And most of all snowboarding! We have many videos on our channel. Used it for hiking also. I'm sure there's more than I just can't remember off hand! We have 3 go pros so we try to capture things from all angles.


I learned to snowboard at 50! woo hoo!
