For a little more you might want to look at GoPro Official Store: Wearable Digital Cameras for Sports

My buddy had one that he took to Hawaii and shot underwater, etc... It's a pretty cool little handheld HD video recorder. Like a Flip, but can handle a couple ft of water.

I love the Kodak PS. I used in all summer in my pool and in the ocean when I went to the beach. The sound quality is a little sub par and the video tends to be shaky, but the ability to put it in water while its filming was quite impressive. The video quality is great, I plug it into a 60" tv and the picture is crystal clear.

Looking forward to using it while snowboarding this season as well.

Brothers roommate just picked one up just to snowboard with this season, i tried it out around their apartment the other day and its pretty sweet and easy to use. The fact that its waterproof and pretty rugged is definitely a plus since i have had some trouble with my cameras while snowboarding.

i just used this on my honeymoon in st lucia and took some very good underwater videos while snorkling. as prev stated mic is kind cheap but if your interest is in making edits your gonna overlay music anyway. definitely worth the $

i've been doing a lot of research on cameras/video cameras for this coming winter...

The Flip is garbage. I mean, it's not garbage, but it's not going to be very good for snowboarding.

The GoPro looks awesome and I really want one, but I don't think it would make a good "only camera you own". No viewfinder. No zoom capability at all. Otherwise it's rugged and waterproof to 180 feet and takes sick video if you're close to the action, and the POV footage is good, they have pretty good image stabilization that the Kodak won't touch.

The Kodak Zx/Zi series (Zx3, Zi8) look to be OK for a budget cam you can find them for $100-149. The Zi8 is only marginally more expensive than the Zx3 I'd get the Zi8 if pocket cam was what I wanted. Sound is so-so. I've seen some youtube edits, they're a little shaky at speed but take good video if your stationary filming.

I have a GoPro and made this video last year. I solidly support Go Pro! Those camera's can take a licking and keep on ticking!! I had a few pretty bad spills last year and that camera acted as if nothing happened. But the video was fun to watch!

I went to one of our smaller hills here in NM called Sipapu. Had 8" of fresh powder fall the night before so the riding was excellent! Last season was my first season snowboarding and this video was only the 5th or 6th time being on a snowboard EVER!!! It was all shot in 1st person because I was there by myself.
