Is POV-over done? I am sure that I am not alone when talking about the overwhelming swarm of Go Pro fever at your local mountain.

Sage the original POV master, I wonder what he thinks of the POV evolution?

Is POV-over done?  I am sure that I am not alone when talking about the overwhelming swarm of Go Pro fever at your local mountain.  Being an original POV artist (not neccesarily in the ski industry) I know a thing or two about mounting cameras in akward places if you know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink…..Funny like ha ha funny, or funny like queer funny!

Yes, that is what we need, 24 hour crab POV channel.

Seas of Go Pro strapped to tweeners, and college kids fill the gates geared up to the T at your local ski resorts.  All “skittled” out with reckless style and fashion making avant garde the fact that, shit hot damn these kids might be the next generation to change the sport. Maybe go bigger, better, further. Either way no matter how it goes down there will be a shit load of POV to show from it.  Good or bad it will be there floating in the internet fodderrizing.  For all of the who cares to see.  At least it is improving, some what.  The shaky Contour goggle syndrome, go pro fog without papers, Vio tunnell vision, bad angle, snow on lens, Is it on?  On the other hand, Big falls, avalanches, burials, amazing events and i’m sure some tragedy’s along the way get captured for the world to see.  The Go Pro movement captures it as real as can be and it is pretty frightening to live in some other peoples perspectives.  To be able to see the crazy shit that goes down on a regular basis and the harm people put themselves in, to  just to almost make a Go Pro edit.

Who wants to see Joey’s 5 minute mogul run with a shifty off a 2 footer at the end, nobody.  Not really..when you have to be super extreme to be a POV sicko for Go Pro.  Who wants to see countless pole cams that done poorly make no body as cool as they think they are, and the shakkyynneess says a lot to the lack of Pro tech skillz to set it up right the original “GO BRO” way.  Who wants to see park POV unless you are Bobby Brown or Shaun White, cause Loon Mountain never looks cool ever, even with a triple cork blah, blah, bro brae bra!

Tom Wallisch killing it with the POV photos.

Still to the defense of any camera, the POV movement has made skiing marketable and breathed life back into the ski/snow world.  Giving athletes an oppurtunity to creativily market, approach, edit, and ultimatley control their own destiny’s.  Unlike in the past couple of decades a heavy reliance on photo and film media was the only way you could make it be sponsored or pro.  If someone else helped you and pushed those shots, really as an athlete those days were numbered, something had to change.  This is it, total freedom to ski freely and not care.  Just go skiing!

I saw a DJ spinning CD’s wearing a Go Pro for his set, it was weird, thats when I knew things have gone to far!

O Canada…..I’m out.  JLC.
