|I Heart Wakeboarding.|
I've self-filmed some of my sessions at the lake (or at sea) but since it's just for fun and pretty random I resorted to using my Olympus waterproof camera which I pretty much carry around all the time. It's a bit tricky holding on to it though while holding on to the cable at the same time, but I managed to secure it to my hand just in case I crash into the water while filming. For future filming, I reckon I should invest in one of them GoPro cams like the HD HERO -- does a pretty nifty job I must say. Take a look at this wicked first person video of various sports pros taken using the GoPro cam:
While I'm at the subject of self-filmed videos, here's one of mine wakeboarding about a year ago at Lake Taco, a cable ski park in Samut Prakan (near Bang Na-Trad highway, Bangkok):
Throwing in an edited video of my first experience wakeboarding via speedboat in the rough waters of Koh Samet, Thailand, taken more than a year ago:
I've definitely improved since these videos were taken, but once I start getting off those kickers, sliders and tabletops and doing jumps and tricks on the wakes THEN we've got some spicy juicy action to film!
