Ocean & Mr T Beach Cottage Guest Posts
Fri 20th, Jul, 2012
Hello again everyone!
It’s Mr. Teenage Beach Cottage here with my second guest post on the blog, again with some (rather less scary) surf pictures.
Well, as very few of you may know it was my birthday recently and I decided to ask Mrs. BC for a GoPro Surf Edition (it’s a small action sports camera with a waterproof housing). And I got it!
So far I love it, I’ve taken it out in the sea 3 times now but have been having difficulty with taking good shots as there is no display screen on the camera (you have to wait until you’re home and have the camera plugged into a computer to see the photos), but despite this I’ve still got some amazing shots.
Getting the camera on the board was a bit of work (we had heard too that they are easy to lose and come off), the mounts that are provided by GoPro are designed for use on a surfboard (it’s a strong glue that can stick to the hard surface of a surfboard), but I wanted this on my body board and it doesn’t stick to that.
So, ending this story, I had to make my own mount, this took ages shoving plugs here and there attempting to get it to stay solid in the board.
But after taking it out today and finding that from where the camera is placed you cannot see the wave in the video, I’m going to have to remount it in another position.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the photos and hopefully I’ll have a very special post in the not so far future, I am working on editing a video underwater, it is amazing.
Here are my feet underwater, I thought my mum and the readers of this blog would appreciate a foot shot ;-)
Bye for now, thanks for looking at my stuff, the first time I posted I had lots of comments and it was great
edit from Mrs BC : a classic brief teenage communication ;-) ;-) …love it
these shots do it for me ladies…bring on Summer, I will be in there with this baby strapped to my wrist
…and doing sit-ups now in prep for the bikini ;-)
