^^ Thats the vid JT and I are trying to figure out how he has the gopro rigged. 

edit: Not sure if any of you all know Glenn Hawks aka Vader, but he doe's all that crazy Mtn biking stuff.  He took a big crash out at that place in Ocala and broke almost every bone in his body!!

Its called a "back scratcher" its mounted on  PVC I think or could be wood. He had a small floater on it like the squishy key chain floaters. He lost the camera on another wave and was tripping because he had some good footage (obviously) but found it down the beach. I only know this because we had a instagram convo about it on one of my pics. I think it's the best gopro clip ever.

Some of his footage looks like its mounted on a wooden boat oar and he somehow holds it perfectly as he gets pitted.
