My new toy

I got a new toy I wanted to share with yall.  Sorry for the super quick edit(and bad edit), but this is about all of the footage I have so far.  I plan on building a pretty good data base throughout the summer and releasing more and more edits.  Enjoy, let me know if you have any ideas on what you would like to see.

Re: My new toy

Thanks man.  Its all shot with a GoPro.  Pretty cool cameras, hd 5 mp still camera, waterproof housing all of 300 bucks.  I would suggest everyone to grab em and push what we have gotten on film within our sport.

Re: My new toy

Funny you should mention it; I was just looking at the $300 GoPro set up today at a local cycle shop...  Highly cool.

Re: My new toy

Unfortunatley im pretty much done snowskiing for the year.  So I dont know if ill get to much footage up in the mountains.  Carly if you go up (snow)skiing again let me know and I would love if you stole the camera for a day.

The camera was mounted to my helmet, but that was the reason for my limited footage.  As soon as I accelerated the visor on my helmet would catch wind and flip up.  its all a work in progress.  Ive got a ton of other shots in the works, all I think will be pretty dope.

Re: My new toy

Tom, where were you skiing in that video?  I at first thought it was Pioneer lake until I clicked play.  You came  out in the fall a couple of years ago and skied some sets with Chad and me at Pioneer.   We all froze our butts off!   wink

Re: My new toy

Good to hear from you Aaron.  Hope your a little warmer down in Az.

Ive got bad news tho, there is now a $50 dollar reward for anyone who can find my camera at the bottom of Utah Lake!! Actually I guess thats good news for the person who finds it.  It was last seen flying off of my ski in between the gates and one ball.  The only thing I have learned so far is that GoPros do not float and after 45 mins in 60 degree water you will probably not ski so well.

Re: My new toy

Very cool. Putting it together like that reminds me of going thru everyday life kinda going left and right, like there are bouys everywhere.

You could include just everyday movement utilizing lefts and rights to continue that theme.  Nice job, it's very cool.

Re: My new toy

Sorry to hear about your misfortune Tom.   It was good video while it lasted!                                           Yes, I am warmer here in Az! When I last skied on Friday the water temp was 78 and air temp 95.  But the funny thing is that I've used my boat heater and drysuit a LOT more here  than I ever used them in Utah - simply due to the fact that we can waterski all winter here. 

For all of you that haven't had the pleasure of meeting Tom, he's a great guy!  When he skied with us we had too many people in the boat cuz we all wanted to watch him ski.  But Tom didn't care that he wouldn't  have the best wake, he was just glad to be skiing.  He also gave me some good tips that have helped me ski better.

Re: My new toy

Dude you lost it already?? No way. Better get a scuba tank. Or maybe a really large piece of cheese cloth.

Re: My new toy

Tom, I was out yesterday afternoon/evening and spent some time trying to find it for you without any luck.  Hopefully someone will stumble onto it.  And Wade, a scuba tank won't do any good at Provo Bay.  You have about 1 inch of visibility.  If I do find it thought Tom, keep your $50.00.  Don't need to get paid for helping somebody.
