Happy to see this. Thanks for posting the vid, sponge. My go-pole is going on its maiden voyage this weekend. Footage to come.

I've been thinking of getting the mini just so its easier to stick in my bookbag but I think the regular gets a better field of view. Decisions, decisions..

This is the original. I debated on the mini but I don't think it gives enough perspective!

how far down do you tilt your GP? I tried it at a few and am torn.

Also, what setting are you using for this vid?

The gopro was about level with the pole. Only used 1 extender. I have a gopro 960 and this was R3 on that model.

I'm debating on the grenade grip but watching their video on Vimeo it doesn't show much. I like yours better with the full view of the board which I think is sick. But the idea of dragging a 3 foot pole everywhere

EDIT:
Just found this from their facebook page

It sucks because it's a pow day so I can't tell how much of the board is in view since it's always buried or covered. But I still like sponger's video better. Decisions decisions!

it all depends on how you hold the pole, ha!

i felt i was holding a little low, i think if you make a conscious decision to hold it higher, above you hips then it should work out fine
the pole isn't that long it looks longer online
