A special place

Andrew Cotton is working with us to capture the inner world of low tide Croyde. And what a start we have made! This isn’t a progo-thingy this is an Sony HDVA1E with a century optics 180deg super fish eye in an ewa marine dive bag adapted with Velcro, aluminum, closed cell foam and an Ikelite domed port, its set on SDV as the HD compression cant handle the detailed movement of white water. Andrew has the leash end in his mouth as the impact pulled the end off his board. Watch this space as we are going to have some fun and games in the next few months. Thanks to Clive Reeves for yet another track from the Bowl Rider.

    Take it easy with the “plastic-bag” style of waterproof housing if that’s what you’re using. They are not as tough as you’d want when surfing, easily ripped. I trashed a £500 video camera with one.

    I always take it easy Mr Cox! I have a very special caring way of treating these and I put a big tampon inside to soak up any spills if there is a leak.
