Get the WIDEST Angle Sports Camera On the Market
Ultra wide angle lenses can capture more of your surroundings so you can see the wave curling over your head or giv you that fisheye look of surf videos.
Most regular digital cameras only give you a 60 to 75 degree viewing angle at the widest. The Gopro Surf Hero features a whopping 170º wide angle lens! The industry's widest angle lens and 5 megapixel sensor give you the most immersive point of view video and photos possible from a surf board mount sports camera, period.
The lens is so wide, it can capture a 6'2" surfer from head to toe while he/she is riding a 6'0" surfboard!
Hassle Free Mounting Options
The Surf HERO has two removable mounting options: A stick-on baseplate and an FCS compatible plug mounting system that allows you to allen-screw your camera into the deck of your board.
Either way, you can quickly and easily attach or remove the camera from your surfboard after installation.
Easy to Use, No Complicated Controls
You can't be messing with fussy controls when you're surfing so the camera is designed with a minimum of adjustments for maximum convenience. All you need to do is press the shutter and paddle out. The GoPro Surf Hero will take it from there, the Surf HERO will shoot TV resolution video or 5MP photos every 2 seconds for an hour while you surf.
Set It Then Forget It
Once it starts shooting you can forget about it until it's time to go over your shoot after your ride. Free Firmware Upgrade allows up to 4GB of video in a single file.
