to start with wake style in not my thing. yes its very technical. but i still prefer to see an insane boost or mad kiteloop.

So... based on the fact that I am not interested in wakestyle and usually avoide watching a wakestyle vid.

I watched the full length of that. good work. great camera angles. mad closeness videoing crazy moves. i liked it.

I was hoping for some crazy move whilst jumping over one of those structures.

That video is excellent. Great perspective, editing, and sick tricks!

If you guys have a Fry's electronic store in your area, retractable monopods are sold there for $15-$20. All you'll need after that is the GoPro Tripod Mount ($5-$10).

This is the one I purchased: ... IN_RSLT_PG

I'd recommend finding a way to make it float in case you drop it.

thanks again. For the love.

the cam was mounted on a lacross stick. It has a good grip and is familar to us...

yeah it is important to be calm and Hyped and sync with the filmer.

Cant wait to film in good wind...

Thanks again for taking the time to watch.
