Far from a technical masterpiece, but a bit of fun from todays session in the cold and windy English Channel. GoPro Hero 2 on 960p 48 fps. Had problems with condensation and droplets and you can see. Next time I'll use a moisture pad inside the housing and I'll wipe the droplets off a bit more often!
In any case it was great fun and probably a better bet than diving in those conditions.

Looks like fun. Vis would have been zero.

Here's some kite flying by GoPro near our dive sites.

Cool kite aerial footage. That's my next stage- put the gopro on the kite while I'm kitesurfing.

That looks pretty cool, do you ever go along to Goring/Ferring, my dad usually hangs out there, next time he's around I will show him your video
