  I know it sounds stupid but don't judge me, I was super baked when I came up with the idea.

I was just thinking, what if I had a heavier toy boat with a deeper hull for stability that had something I could mount a Go Pro to? I could make the rope longer and shorter so I could get shots in front of me (like someone would in a tube) and behind me. Only reason I don't do the inner tube thing is because a lot of the time when I go ride it's just my dad and I, sometimes my sister (who's learning) goes, but not often enough to really spend money on an inner tube.

The only problem with the toy boat idea is the water being choppy. It's really easy to imagine the chop of the water giving me a reeaaally shaky video, probably even in totally glassy water because of the prop wash. So, do I have any other ridiculous ideas? You better believe it!! Lol, so what if I had an RC helicopter (a really good one, I know its expensive) with a Go Pro mounted on it somewhere? Well, obviously we could only use it if there was someone else besides the dad on the boat, and since it would probably be a little costly to get one of  helicopters, it contradicts me wanting to build the little toy boat thing. 

BUUUUUT, could you imagine how sick that would be?! Lets say I bitch at my dad enough for him to get my sister and I one of those way overpriced RC helicopters, lets say we learned how to use the thing pretty well, lets say it wasn't too windy, and lets say we set the camera at an angle we were familiar with so we had a basic idea of where it should be relative to whoever is riding to get a good shot, and LETS JUST SAY THIS ISNT TOO STUPID....


Lol anyone heard of anything like this? Opinions and ideas would be appreciated
