On a scorching summer day in West Vancouver, what better way to pump the adrenaline and cool down than jumping on a Sea-doo and hitting the waters at Ambleside? That’s exactly what Mark Zealand did with the addition of a couple of willing folks and a few ContourHD 1080p cameras. With Contours mounted to the Sea-doos via the suction cup mount and one on his melon, Mark, Baby G and Adam Rabeda tear up the waters of the Burrard Inlet while capturing everything in true HD format.
The breaking water contributes to the speed and action of the recording, but when slowed down it almost runs as smooth as silk over the Sea-doos and the faces of the riders capturing the motion and rhythm of the sea. The footage is pretty sweet and you even get to see the aftermath of a pretty epic bail… but that doesn’t stop anyone, they are right back to it, rocking along to the well matched track by Stanton Warriors, “Get Low.” Capturing video from the Sea-doos with the assistance of the suction cup mount, the ContourHD grabs some awesome angles, adding essential variety to the recording, from facial expressions to the view of rushing water over the lens. This injects well received personality to the video, while creating a softness and depth. Sporting another Contour on his melon, Mark also picks up some wicked footage from his point of view, mixing up the perspective a bit. Filmed under the glowing sun through the spray of the sea, this video contains some great energy that pulls you in and makes you smile.
This video displays the intense versatility of the ContourHD 1080p in the water with its durable, underwater housing and variety of mounts while maintaining recording in true HD quality. Mark edits his footage seamlessly, and times it flawlessly to his music choice. His videos always display a high energy that makes you want to hit the waters, trails, slopes… well, whatever he happens to be riding.
A special thanks goes out to Mao Carvajal - for the use of the Sea-doos, enabling this slick recording to come to life.
