as this was my first attempt at using a GoPro or using iMovie, you'll notice some rough edges. I limited myself to 4 hours on iMovie because i could see how this could take HOURS to get all the cuts right and sync'd up with the music. I did my best, and i think it accurately captures a really cool day on the water with our family. I hope you like it!!

Love the camera, I am mounting one on my monoski this winter fo sure. Strong skills from the endless mexico surf cast... Best in Show goes to Brew for his ride... 2 points deducted for the water in lieu of cerveza on the ponga ride but solid longboard skills. Do they have a clydsdale division for surfing like they do for running???? Brew works the longie like no big man I have seen before. Ditto Ross on the edit work. I am now wondering if the whole trip wasn't a surfari with a wedding to justify??? Right.

clydesdale... that's classic. But there was only like 1 shot of brew... i think those foggy ones you were mistaking him for me. i'm fine with it. i wish you made it out with us.... we'll do it again for your 40th.

Awesome. Well done. Love the shot of Rod and Joe on the same wave. Great stuff. Incidentally, I may wear an orange rash guard every day. I look great in that thing.

Big fan of the orange rash guards!

thanks Adrianna... i'm glad you liked it. I wasn't sure it would be interesting to anyone buy my family. So glad you liked it!!
September 01, 2010
No problem. :) How could others not find it interesting when it contains such good music. ;) Plus, I loved how you used GoPro and iMovie. Nicely done!
September 01, 2010

I actually felt warmer looking at all the water, waves, beach and people dressed for the wrm weather. What a fun remembrance of the wedding. Much happiness to the newlyweds! Their mission, if they choose to accept it, is to go to your Lunch.com site and look at this video whenever they get annoyed enough with one another to think they may want to actually get into an argument about something! That is from Barbara Garro http://www.BarbaraGarro.com

Solid surfing ensemble cast and excellent song selection. I can't wait for the BluRay version!
Quick Tip by . August 31, 2010
Nice video, the video on my board would have shown me 1) Falling of the board 2) Laying on the board trying to find more energy 3) The board flying through the air and hitting me in the head 4) Me hanging on to the side of the board to avoid drowning 5) My instructor asking me if I'm okay and ready to go hit another wave I think the shot of me with my head hung low on the beach summarizes my surfing nicely (-; Humbled again, try again next year

Strong editing work. You would have gotten an "A" at LMU in film editing 202. 8mm Gunsmoke scene.

About this online video


This was my first attempt using a GoPro camera and also my first attempt using iMovie.  So the footage is a little foggy at times and my cuts aren't perfect, but i'm still happy with the way this short video captures a great day with two families coming together to go surfing.  Good stuff.
