There’s little doubt that the revolution in sports action cameras will continue to gain pace. The ease of use and quality of the images from these tiny waterproof units make them an attractive prospect for those wishing to document their surf sessions. It allows us to share experiences usually reserved for the confines of our memory banks.
I’ve struggled slightly to embrace this revolution. I find the self-importance of taking a camera into the lineup a little hard to swallow. Add this to the fact that these cameras are rarely deployed by the best or most modest surfers in the water and it all leaves me feeling just a little uneasy.
