Love the camera, the reason i got the Drift over the GoPro is cos i hate how the GoPro mounts and sticks out, the Drift is longer and slim and sits more flush on my helmet (just personal preference). The pole i have is telescopic and collapses to about 6inches so i find it easy to carry round and it is light and easy to hold up with the cam attached. If you search Drift HD and see the comparisons you can see the quality.
It takes some getting used to while boarding but is pretty easy to handle. Breck was awesome, i loved the size of the mountain and it wasn't as busy as i was expecting, the longest line i waited in was 30 mins (once) and it was the quicksilver beginner lift (was with my 5 year old). I didn't go back there again and made my lil one ride the mercury so we didn't have to wait, turns out she could do the blues anyway.
my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
