I recently purchased a GoPro camera for our family. The waterproof GoPro is great for capturing skiing, biking, and water sport adventures. I taught my son how to use it and he eagerly “videotaped” him and his friends’ daily life here at the beach, which consists largely of biking, basketball, skateboarding, scootering, swimming and diving, and playing outside games like manhunt and hide and go seek.
I found that viewing and editing the videos gave me an interesting kid’s eye view of life. While not inconsistent with what I thought was important to him, seeing the footage taped from his vantage point (first person shots) along with third person shots gave me a new appreciation for what his life is like.
Here’s a compilation of water sports we took over the last few days.
