Surfing with a Back-Mounted GoPro on a Pole That’s Edited Out

Here’s a neat perspective for shooting surfers: filmmaker Chris Rogers mounted a GoPro HERO6 onto surfer Bianca Buitendag‘s back and then edited the pole rig out during post-processing. You can see the mount and the footage at 2:17 in the 4-minute video above.

The setup resulted in mesmerizing 3rd-person point-of-view shots of Buitendag in action.
