The GoPro HERO was practically built for sports, and not just the extreme kind. It's compact, durable, and produces high-quality footage at a high-frame rate—just the kind of camera you want for shooting fast-moving athletes outdoors. Rich Harrington drops in at the local skate park and shows how to shoot grinds, kickflips, and ollies from multiple angles, including a head mount and an under-the-board point of view. He also shows how to plan for other equipment you'll need, like Steadicam rigs for extra stabilization or clamps and poles to capture interesting angles. Plus, learn how to film interviews on location without having to switch cameras, and set your GoPro to capture overcranked footage. Best of all? The techniques shown only require one camera, so if you have a GoPro, you're good to go.

When you mount a camera to the board, there's a decent chance that you're going to be putting the gear at risk. Remember, something like skateboarding? You're going to have impacts. The board's going to break loose, it's going to flip over, you're going to be doing things like slides. There's lots of chances to actually break the camera. So, I recommend that you take it a bit slow. And if possible, keep the camera in its protective case, and use something like a cage. Most of the GoPro mounts tend to be a little but softer, out of hard rubber or hard plastic, so they do have a bit of give.
But when using metal, make sure you take the time to wrap any sharp points or look for ways to keep everything safe, and avoid any unnecessary injuries.
