The V360 Camera: Your life in 360 degrees.

by Lindsay Bell

In an age of mountable HD cameras that keep coming out of the wood work, the numbers 1080, the letters HD and stunning wide angle footage have become familiar characters in our day to day conversations. We’ve seen it before, we know what these mountable cameras are capable of and you can’t get through a day at the beach without seeing a GoPro attached to the nose of a board. Technology has brought the privilege of filming excellent quality footage to amateur photographers and athletes around the world and as the future closes in around us, our skills and the available tech to create and capture incredible videos is at our fingertips.

In the spirit of progress, a new front runner has stepped over the line and reinvented our ability to film high quality HD video of ourselves and others performing high impact activities. Enter the V360 Camera. The V360 is just as mountable as the GoPro, Contour and other HD Cameras, but is not restricted to only one angle. On the contrary, the V360 Cam simultaneously films a seamless 360 degree view of everything around it, all at once. For example, if you mount the V360 on the front of your board, it will capture every take off, every bottom turn and every cutback you can throw at it, but at the same time, it can also capture the wave in front of you and your friend paddling up to your right or left.

 

This allows you to choose which angle you want to see once you open the video on your desktop video viewer. Pan left, right and in a complete 360 to see every possible angle of your footage. It’s the closest thing there is to capturing an actual memory. You can also create panoramic style videos for sharing that display the entire 360 degrees in the frame.

 

Want to see the V360 in action? Check out this video and pick up one of your very own at BC Surf And Sport and BCSurf.com. $449.00 MSRP

Medina Claims His Third Win at the Billabong Pro Tahiti

by NIck Mariano

With his third win, Brazilian Gabriel Medina has maneuvered himself closer to claiming the ASP World Title.  Staying atop the point’s leader board for almost every event, Medina has seemed to find himself in 2014 by continuing to surf flawlessly.  Medina silenced many when he took on the epic surf at the Billabong Pro Tahiti at Teahupo’o. In an event that many claimed would go down in the history books, with heats that had seen some of the most amazing tube riding along with wipe outs, Medina survived unscathed and claimed first over Kelly Slater.

The waves were intimidating; monster slabs so big that it was nearly impossible to paddle into them. That didn’t stop many from trying; some succeeding, others not so much. Besides Medina’s bag full of nine-point barrels other notable standouts included Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Michel Borez, and Owen Wright.  Slater looked like the favorite to win scoring multiple perfect ten-point rides in heats and comboing anyone in his way. John John Florence made himself at home standing tall, getting deep, and loving every minute of Teahupo’o left-handed barrels.  The Semi-Final between Slater and Florence saw some of the deepest barrels, latest drops, and the highest scores. In the first seconds of the heat Florence scored a 9.90 and on the wave behind it Slater scored a perfect 10. It was thirty five minutes of some of the best surfing anyone has seen this year.  The heat was so close with each surfer going deeper and later the judges decided the Semi-Final between Florence and Slater would end in a tie. However, Kelly’s ten-point ride proved to be the tie breaker.

Owen Wright lost to Gabriel Medina in the other Semi-Final. Although Wright didn’t go home empty handed, he was awarded with the Andy Irons Most Committed Award for his stellar surfing and overcoming a few serious wipe-outs. Homegrown Tahitian Michel Borez was surfing great throughout the competition until he faced off with Bede Durbige and was eliminated in the fifth round.  Borez was believed to be a favorite in the Billabong Tahiti Pro but has not been able to make it out of the fifth round since joining the tour.

Next stop is the Hurley Pro at Trestles in Southern California from September 9th – 20th. Will Medina keep steamrolling his way to a World Title Crown? Will anyone step up to stop him? Find out here at BC Surf & Sport for all your news and information in the world of action sports.
