That looks cold. Give some credit to the self-tacker for not breaking while being used as a pull-up bar

I seem to be an expert at pitching downwind just like that... I was watching this yelling at the crew to move back! smile

The Gopro is pretty tough, you do have to inspect the casing everytime you mount it though, the base has snapped of by quite a few people.
A friend of mine also found it doesn't float smile

There is no place for a lanyard on the go-pro(current model). it would be nice but i am sure they sell more without them. My first go pro made it exactly out 2x before i lost it (operator error).
