Goofy Foot I am not!

Shot on July 3rd, 2007 on Geo and Char's boat before a tasty 4th of July dinner! I'm trying to learn to 180 so I can start getting the big air! This was filmed on a Pure Digital Flip Video Camcorder (Warning: sappy, emotional intro) I'm testing for my dad that we may give as gifts to family in Israel. I still don't understand what the main selling point is with these things? For just under a hundred dollars, only 30 minutes of video storage, and limited video output settings, couldn't you find an affordable digital camera that does video and have the best of both worlds? Of course, you could buy an iPhone and forget gifts altogether! JK

Now this is how it's supposed to be done (by my wakeboard instructor and brother-in-law Geo):

Update: On second thought, I was pretty impressed with what you get for your money in terms of the Flip Video. It's lightweight, powered by two AA batteries, no memory card is required, it's got 2x zoom, you can capture photos from video, and when we plugged it into the TV, easy to use, and the quality of video wasn't too bad (640 x 480). Of course, I don't have some HDTV Flat Panel yet, but I don't believe the recipients do either. Win-Win
