Snowboard Filming

Does anyone have any decent looking angles or filming tricks for snowboarding? I just picked up a Sony HDR-FX7 and I'm looking to film a bunch of snowboarding this year. Also, any feedback on fisheye shots with snowboarding? Is it anything like filming skating (fisheye shots)?

best filming will be on bluebird days so always watch the weather and be ready when it comes.

shoot b roll

always use a polarized filter, i like circular pols

keep your batteries warm - carry your spare in your inside jacket pocket

absolutely. colors on bluebird days are fantastic and i always keep a hand warmer on the battery that I'm using. but for fisheye shots follow camming lines does it work? or should i just set up and shoot long lens instead?

both. start watching your favorite videos with a filmers eye. think about how they got those shots and then go do it - and experiment with weird shit that you might think up on your own...
