Many of you saw the awesome video that come from last years PP ball. We had a pretty limited selection to work with and still made an amazing trailer that we used to show our sponsors how much fun we had and to show new sponsors why they should donate to us. This year we would like to do even more. We would like to borrow your footage to help get as much as possible. If your willing to loan us your go pro, we will mount it somewhere along the creek race to catch all the gnar and later we can mount them all over the ramp for tons of pov angles. This should get us tons of footage. If you don't want to loan your precious go pro, I understand. Instead come out and help run safety on the creek and wear your go pro!

We are by no means exclusive to go pros either, any helmet cam/waterproof camera that we can mount will work. The footage can be shared by all so everyone can take a crack at editing out the best trailer.

Last year we ran a contest for the best video and gave away a go pro, unfortunately we didn't contact them in time this year to have them sponsor but perhaps we can still find something in the treasure trove to throw down as a prize!

If your interested in helping with video or willing to loan your camera then please contact me here or find me at the event.

~Adam



Just in case you haven't seen the videos:

Adam I'm happy to lend my GoPro for the cause, although it's not HD, I can also bring some extra mounts if someone wants to film on river and doesn't have one. Just please add a healthy supply of Lithium triple A's to your shopping list. They're not cheap and this camera eats them like candy.
More water, please.

Thats great. Will you be coming up this weekend or do we need to connect beforehand? Does yours only take the triple A's or will it accept the rechargable battery as well?

That will work great. Find me at the campfire and please mark yours in some way so we can get the correct camera back to you. I'll pick up some batteries.

I don't see why someone couldn't use rechargeable triple AAA's in the thing and cycle thru 2 pairs.

Leif and you need to learn to keep you paddle blade high and away from the other kayakers head and eyes. It should be automatic to keep the blade away from other peoples head and eyes or you guys are going to seriously injure someone. Better to lose your balance and roll then take out someones eyes with a blade...I know Blair already damaged my left eye with a blade.

Does anyone have a tripod and mount they could bring? I just picked up a bunch of flat mounts and a few others. Also any suction cup mounts would be great.

Infact if people could bring whatever mounts they have we can make this work out awesome.

Not sure that would cover it. Does that mean if I don't buy them I can expect meanness (is that a word) the whole weekend? Caus I'm OK with that.

I haven't been able to get a replacement part for my GoPro. Still broken needing the attachment mount. Hey James, why don't you just take advantage of REI's return policy, buy a bunch of GoPro's get your videos footage, then return them?

That would be abusive and I enjoy my patronage of REI. I would prefer not to damage the integrity of my self or their return policy.
