Hi everyone: Maybe not that "extreme", after going through all the topics I could these days, I can see that I still have to learn so much!!! from all of you.

Sorry, my name is Eduardo and I live in the Canary Islands, Spain (very close to the african coast).
Nearly a year now riding my AI and now I decided to buy my TI. I really enjoy both of them. Also I do enjoy shoting and editing my vids, and here´s the last one: My new TI in rough conditions (although, I've been in worst situations than this) . It didn't seem at the begining, but then it turned to be windier and sailed big waves. Also I had some problems to unfurl the sail and lost the two little battens... obviously, I didn't lace them properly.
Editing the video I decided to rap by the end of it. Obviously, I don't know much about it and also I have a lot to learn about editing; anyway, I hope you enjoy and sorry because not every spanish word is translated to english and maybe my english is not great! (in fact I called blades to the battens), hehe

Muy interesante navegacion!

Your video is good, the waves are bigger than anything I have tried so far on my Tandem island that I have had for a month here in South Florida, USA.

Disfrutar vuestro barca!

Good video, but a little repetitive.

Can you describe your camera pole and it's hardware?

Hi g2pilot thanks very much for your comment.
Maybe in the future I manage to go for the Everglades challenge. I wish. Maybe a visit first next year and start organizing a way for doing it. Let´s see!

you are right: too long... I realized, but had a lot of work done already to match images with the sound and I didn´t want to start all over again. Thanks for your comment!

I use a fish rod. Not too big. took off the thin lines of it and adapt the last one for a piece with a base in which I stuck the adhesive bits that comes with the GOPRO camera. So far, I think this is the best camera for this purpose because of the way attaches to places and weight of it. Maybe I didn´t explain it properly but I promise attach some pics of it... Hope to help!

it´s

Thanks, I can see it at 4:51. I would expect a fishing rod to be too flexible. It must be a heavy action rod. The only part I can't make out is which piece is attached to the thin tapered rod end. The adhesive mounts are square and flat or slightly curved that come with the camera.

I had a look in a marine supplier shop this morning and I found it. It said in english: "support dame", but I tried to find it on internet with that name and no luck.
