I prefer the Go-Amateur. Everyone knows the amateur videos, with their grainy texture and tv playing in the background... er... I mean... well, you know what I'm talking about.

I know if I say this seanlee will show up to say how russ is gay and nobody but front rangers can paddle, but some of that Driven stuff from last summer was bad ass! Shit c-mike has some bad ass stuff on vimeo too. Not many people are going boating with a camera crew everyday so I think its sweet to get to see some vids of peoples latest missions. I will say that I don't watch many of the ski POV's though.

Sometimes being an old fart, i.e.-electronically inept, has it's advantages. I have mostly to catch the family for our own amusement. Most of my stuff is not worth publishing. The only thing that comes close is usually my dirt bike carnage which is superior to all! In fact I can crash better than all of you on dirt, water, snow, whatever! And I've been doing it longer than all you! Boating & skiing since '62! So just remember youngun's: you didn't invent it and you sure as hell haven't perfected it!

Because of paddle strokes I find POV paddling far more compelling then snow sports. This was in the Winter Buzz forum so I was talking shit. On the water these things are great.

I decided that I am just a grumpy bastard... if you have a Go-Pro, use it, play with it, experiment with it, have fun with it and I'll stop worrying about it...... deal?


Anyone know how to get this thread removed? (I dont want to be a hater on the 'Buzz)

how you can claim...

a waist deep backcountry day that was really a swagged day at eldora,
a vertical pin in gore cayon that was really a missed roll at pumphouse,
a flash on a 5.14 in joshoa tree that was actually a rappel off the back of your house,
a sweet hook up with a super model in australia that was actually your overweight cousin last thanksgiving,

when you've got footage of it all on youtube. totally ruins making awesome claims.

Yes, that is what I do too. To keep in shape for it I hang a wet towel off of my boner when I get out of the shower and I walk around the house like that for a few minutes. If you don't have the strength for this you can work up to it by starting out with a washcloth, then a hand towel, then the big one. I can do a wet beach towel for like 15 minutes no problem.
