Jesse Cors

Jesse Cors kiteboarding in the surf at Jupiter Beach, Florida. The camera is mounted on a custom rig I made that sits about 36 inches behind the rider and can swing 170 degrees from left to right and back. I call it the ShadowCam.

At the core of the ShadowCam is a high-resolution waterproof video camera made by VioSport called the Adventurecam H2O. I have used other helmetcams and POV cams before and in my opinion VioSport are the best. Well built, lightweight, indestructible aluminum and glass housing with a 480 TV line Sony Hyper HAD 1/3" CCD chip that produces crisp video. To build your own POVcam to film kiteboarding:

  • 1. Get a VioSport H2O
  • 2. Fit a small camcorder into a waterproof box like a Pelican 1150.
  • 3. Run the cable from the VioSport thru the valve hole and seal.
  • 4. Plug cable into your camcorder and use as a VCR in recording mode.
  • 5. Mount the waterproof VioSport Cam on your helmet or anywhere you can think of.
  • 6. Go film something cool.

The helmet used in this video is a silver Gath Gedi. If you are smart enough to know when to wear a helmet then you will appreciate the smart design of Gath. Super light and comfortable you will barely know it is protecting your precious brain.

US Gath Distibutor Steve at Murrays tells me a Gedi helmet option coming soon will be built-in waterproof headphones which you plug into your Ipod.
