i'm getting ready to buy a gopro underwater camera and stumbled onto this video on the company's site. it's the sickest skate video i've ever seen. it may just surpass the classic videos like bones brigade. it takes a couple minutes to load, but the editing and the sensation of speed and adrenaline that it communicates are overwhelming. and look at the shots of what have to be southern california, either santa barbara or ventura county, i would guess. just gorgeous. how about the shot where they round the curve and the only thing in front of them is the shining blue pacific ocean? epic.
UPDATE: the link is funky so you have to click on 'sample videos' and then scroll down to the downhill skateboarding one.
