Ready to Record the Ride...

Finally got round to rigging up a Gopro Hero cam onto one of the thirdshade swallow tail handplanes in the hope of getting a good bit of footage of some bodysurfing carnage!

Took it out to test it but after 40 seconds (shooting not very much) the batteries on the cam failed. Forgot to fully charge them, oops. A bit of an anticlimax after spending ages trying to get it mounted just right!!

Hoping to get out again soon, (slightly better prepared) and get some proper footage, might also try the cam mounted on the nose looking back at the wave and the rider. Watch this space...

PS: Handplanes are now back on sale in the thirdshade shop after a little break whilst we built up some stock.
