Skate Skull is a thrash-proof skateboard mount for GoPro Hero 3/3+ & 4. Tough magnesium-alloy protects GoPro, even when mounted underneath your deck.
I came up with it when I wanted to get the underneath-the skateboard angle in the video below (skater Nick Sommer uses the prototype).
We will be launching a Kickstarter campaign in the very near future (check back for updates)! And check out Skate Skull in full-fledged action in the skate-film I directed below.
Testing a skateboard trick off a moving boat for the in progress film project “Thrash or Die.” Stuntman is skater/actor/writer Nick Sommer doing the boat skateboard jump onto the pier. The shots are from the Milwaukee River in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Nick having a good time on our way to the test site:
Pulling up to the test site:
I call this masterpiece, “Party Foul.” Note the wasted beer in the bottom frame.
Nick landed this 3 or 4 times in a row while the boat was tied up, but this makes me giggle, so had to post it.
There’s also a wedding party taking pictures of us and them and cheering Nick on right next to us, just off-cam:
After landing with the boat tied up, we finally did it they way I wanted 😛 with the boat moving!
Nick lands it like a beast after a couple tries. No beer spill either:
Our goal was to shoot during blue hour/moon set of the Super Full Perigee Moon to try to get a real-life version of a 90’s large/low comic-book-style moon. But because half the sky was filled with clouds, the moon was blocked. So I shot at the sunset, which brought out even more beautiful and vibrant colors than other sunsets.
The shoot was for some concept stills of a project skater/actor/filmmaker Nick Sommer and I are looking at doing possibly.
