Sunset beach gopro footage

Below is my gopro footage from my Cape Town trip over new year. If the link doesn't work just search for "jamo gopro footage sunset beach 2015"

I sailed twice at sunset beach, the first day on a 5.0 and the second on 4.5. First day the wind was a bit lighter but there was a bit of a wave. Second day the wind was nice and strong but difficult to find a wave to catch.

If you look closely there's an attempted back-loop in there somewhere but the boom mount (and lack of height in my jump) doesn't show it up very well because the horizon doesn't come into the pic.

I also had a 1-footed back loop attempt -completely unplanned. My footstraps felt really loose in Cape Town... I wonder if the cold water makes your feet smaller??

Sunset is really tame when the swell is small and great for practising. I used a boom mount on the front of the boom most of the time. Towards the end of the video I show a few clips from the back of the boom (clew mount). I've made a clamp for my gopro out of a cheap hardware store clamp that allows me to attach to boom or mast quite quickly and easily.
