GoPro Hero 3: Black Edition – Surf

We’ve finally got our hands on the GoPro 3 Black Edition – Surf-  and doesn’t it half look good! Whether you’re surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, SUP, kite boarding, snorkeling, paragliding, water skiing,snowboarding or mountain biking, fit a GoPro3 to your arm/helmet/crossbar/board and enjoy filming the action at a hefty 1080p @ 60fps.

Weighing in at 2.6 ounces the Hero3 is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous models, whilst the video performance offers 2X the resolution and 2X the frame rate of the Hero2. As far as photo performance goes, burst capture is actually 3X improvement, with the ability to shoot 30 frames per second at 12MP with twice as good low light performance compared to previous models. Still photo and Time Lapse photo capability remains the same, but you are now able to capture continuous  12MP stills at either 3,5 or 10 photos per second rate.

Here’s a few shots that users have submitted using the GoPro3

Firewire Vanguard


Ladies and Gentlemen, behold the Vanguard, Firewire’s bold new model – the brainchild of pioneering Lennox Head shaper/ripper Daniel Thomson (Tomo). We spoke to Firewire head honcho Nev Hyman today and he said:
“I’ve been riding this for weeks and it’s f—–g amazing! Problem is I’m going to have to rip up the shaping manual.”
We’ll admit, we were somewhat dubious, but after testing it ourselves for a few days we can confirm that it’s a great board. It takes a few waves to get used to (if you’re used to riding thrusters then maybe start off using the Vanguard with three fins before switching to it’s preferred four fin configuration) but it’s well worth it. It’s fast, smooth, forgiving, versatile and fun. We haven’t fully got our heads around why it works, but it most certainly does. Looks like being a game-changer!

Buy the Vanguard today!
