I saw this video angle in an Aaron Chase/GoPro vid.
I decided to see if I could duplicate the angle; as you don't see this angle very often, and it gives a unique perspective.

I'm still figuring out a better mounting system besides duct tape and a helmet mount; and possibly some counter wieghting to better balance things out.








Here is a test run on the intermediate trail, at The Lair in Bend, Oregon

Details on what you made the boom out of?
the pole is light weight aluminum tubing. I anealed the sections of tube, where the bends are; so I could easily shape the pole without it kinking. I drilled and tapped an aluminum slug and pressed it into the end of the pole. I dimpled the outside of the pole where the slug is, so it wouldn't turn while tightening the cam.

Cool mount...
The video almost looks unnatural because your head isn't moving a bit. I mean even when you land a jump your head isn't moving.
I'm going to have to try something like this too because it's a good angle to mix into a video.
