I had 3 x 12 minute flights over the weekend at Byron Bay (Australia) and created this:

http://vimeo.com/117873768

I'm pretty impressed with the footage, especially when not compressed via Vimeo. I did not shoot in 4k as I wanted 50 frames per second. There are a few little jellyfish wobbles here and there, which I have only just noticed after watching many times editing.

I have done a bit of this in the past with 450 and 550 Flamewheels and Phantom. The Inspire set-up with rectilinear lens, more power and lightbridge is so much better and easier.

Beautiful footage, hope I will be brave enough to fly a 3300.00 rig over the surf like that. No guts no glory I guess. Great video, thanks for sharing

Thanks for the feedback guys. The Inspire 1 was great for this. Very smooth to fly. I am very happy with it. The footage was all shot with auto camera settings, no post production at all - and just simple cuts in Final Cut Pro.  The video made it onto the front page of a surf site called swell net and had 10,000 views yesterday. Go inspire 1!

Inspiring video!  (pun intended)

Cowardy custard me would have been too nervous to fly over the sea after the problems a few pilots have reported.  Must be braver!  Great flying and great video.

Did anyone give you grief about filming the, surfing?  I live in a surf town and want to put some footage together, but don't want any angry groms chasing me down.

I was pretty careful not to hover right above people. I hovered out the back and turn when someone caught a wave I flew in for the shot. I was worried about annoying people but the surfers I spoke too were excited and wanted to get on camera.
