Footage from Pete Mel’s GoPro during the Mavericks Invitational.
I don’t get the point of these cameras being put on the nose of the board looking back. Despite the fact that that was shot at one of the most fearsome waves on the planet, you would be hard pressed guessing that its any bigger than 8 feet. The shots from the surfers perspectives are great, and the one from above the surfer’s shoulder is great too, but looking back at the surfer – I don’t get it!
Totally agree, Jimmy! Plus the facial expressions are always awkward.
