Surfing at 11th street

Last week I purchased a Go Pro Camera to use during my outdoor adventures.  I couldn't wait to try it out surfing.  On Monday and Tuesday I went surfing at 11th street in Del Mar and even though the waves weren't great it was still a ton of fun.  Take a look!

I mounted the camera to the front of my single fin 7'4'' funboard.

Sorry about the pixelation.

Awesome! Reminds me of this Jack Johnson video:

Pretty darn cool, Dude; I especially liked the music and the expressions on your face! How did you ever get the camera mounted on the board so you were confident that it would't fall off? Good job my man

that's so sick, such a great view. can we take out the camera board when i get back down there?

Thanks guys!

B- we can take the board out whenever you want. Hit me up when you're in LA or SD. You'll have to tone down your surfing so you don't make me look bad!!!

Dad- The mount was a giant sticker, industrial adhesive. I just had to trust it would stay on. Thankfully it did!

@ Erik. J Johnson's video [professionally done, of course] is pretty cool, but T's takes the cake!!
