I was just wondering, what is a good, cheap camera to start out with? I want to make movies of me and my friends bodyboarding. It needs to be able to be watertight at least a little deep. Most of the shots will be shorebreak. Any suggestions?

Thats the essence of surfing right there - boardies, blue sea, in the barrel with a huge grim on your face!! So why do people give pics like this negative ratings? Oh, and if you want a go pro camera check out www.secretspot.co.uk - good prices and service!! woo hoo!

What you need is a primordial dwarf, very small but without the big heavy head and stumpy fingers.

Sick Photo!! Got a surf Hero last week.....its awesome!!! Much better angle fixed on the board rather than on the head. On photo burst mode you can get some crazy pics from all kinds of angles. Love it!

Is the lack of wax the reason why he is gripping on to the rail with his back foot??

I missed seeing John here or this photo was taken in Dec not Jan, either way it's a hot shot. Good job and would love to hook up with you if you live down here in Puerto to see what we might do together in the Photography arena working one each to the other end of Zicatela, ie: from La Punta to Carri or Barra and south back up to as far a Nexpa etc. Lonnie The RpmSURFER at http://www.RpmSURFER.com

good shot, good colours, good wave/tube, good stance with caressing hand as mentioned, good stoke face (as opposed to a*s ram face). 2 thumbs up
