1080p High Definition Camera
The GoPro HD1 Surf Hero is now discontinued.
You can now purchase the GoPro HD2 Surf Edition which has much higher video quality.
Alternatively, check out the new ActionPro helmet camera which uses the same chipset as the GoPro HD2 camera and offers excellent value for money.
The GoPro HD camera Surf HERO is the world’s only 1080p HD on-board video camera designed for use on the water. Professional high quality 1080p, 960p, 720p HD resolutions recording at 30 or 60 frames per second (720p). Easily mounts to any surfboard.
The included adhesive base mounts in seconds and has been proven in heavy Northern California, Puerto Escondido and Hawaiian surf. For a more integrated, permanent solution, you can install an FCS fin plug into the deck of your surf board and then use the patent pending camera mounting plug to allen key your GoPro HD Surf HERO camera into the deck of your board. When removed, your deck is smooth with only the FCS fin plug remaining.
GoPro was originally founded as a surf camera company...these are our roots. You can be sure the HD Surf HERO is built to take a beating.
In addition to filming 1080p/960p and 720p videos, the GoProHD Surf HERO camera can also take 5MP photos automatically every 2 seconds while you surf. The batteries last over 2.5 hours for video or photo taking, so you can literally document your entire surf with HD video or automatic 5MP photos every 2 seconds with the simple press of the shutter button once, on the paddle out. You will not need to press the shutter button again until you want to stop it from recording.
This 1080p waterproof camera Surf HERO is compatible with all other GoPro HERO camera mounts, so it's easy to expand the functionality of your HD Surf HERO to also suction cup to vehicles, mount to helmets, and much more.
