Old skool paipo boarders get GoPros

Looks like GoPros were a popular Xmas gift this past year. These vids just popped up recently.

There are a few other recent vids from O'ahu where paipos appear, but no riding scenes in those.

Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?

He must have mounted a three foot pole on the front of the board for the reverse POV shots (check the shadow after the duck dive). Very cool.

I have a link somewhere about making one. Saw a vid of a bodyboarder who had one, it was pretty sweet. Mounted to the front or back to give a nice angle. The one I saw used some PVC. Having all of that staff next to you will make wipeouts more fun. Now you have to avoid 3 fins and a section of pipe.

That rear mounted pole would have to stick up between the rider's legs. Sounds like a chance to get your rear mounted by a pole. Hmm.

There's a joke in there somewhere. Unless you're the one who gets the surprise anal probe. :shock:
