Everything we have shot this year has been with a Flip UltraHD with the waterproof housing. Does a pretty decent job, some of the footage has been good and some his bad. The bad thing about the Flip is it is very sensitive to light and shake. Hoping to upgrade to a GoPro for next year and give that a whirl, but it has been fun learning to shoot and edit this year. Can only get better with each effort.
Just make some friends next time your over at Wake Nation, everyone I have met over there has been super cool. I am sure someone would be willing to film you or vice versa.
