Fucking priceless! It wasn't me, it was my dude, he came down from the run and had some random road/ice rash above his eye...(Luckily I had the Brave Soldier with me, that stuff is the shit) He was telling our son which way to go and just randomly caught an edge. We didn't get to see the vid until we got home that night.
Those surprise wipeouts are for sure the fucking worst! When you least expect it..most falls you can feel coming and prepare, but those ones that come out of nowhere are gnarly. One second on your feet - the next
slammed on your ass/face/shoulder trying to figure out what the fuck went down !
The cam in this vid is mounted on his helmet through the vents (you can see it in the shadow on the vid), but we also have the surfboard mount for the board. It's a disk that sticks to your board, tricky getting it on to make sure you get best view. Only thing is, once the disk is on, that bitch is on, it's not coming off (and if it is it's fucking up the topsheet).
yusoweird - you're gonna love it! vids are super still and if you set it up to take the stills (every 2-5 seconds) you can really catch some amazing shots.
We've got some great laughs out of this vid...
