The GoPro Surf HERO Camcorder is specifically designed for shooting HD video while you surf. Capture 1080, 960, and 720p video at 30 or 60 frames per second (60fps in 720p) as well as 5MP photos. The HD Surf HERO can be mounted to your board with adhesive base mounts or the FCS fin plug mount, and of course, using the housing that's waterproof up to 180 ft (60m). Optional accessories can be used with the Surf HERO as well for shooting in a variety of other settings.

In addition to giving you shooting capabilities almost anywhere the HD Surf HERO has a battery that lasts up to 2.5 hours. You can recharge the battery up to 80% in as little as 1 hour when plugged into a USB compatible wall or car charger or 2 hours when plugged into your computer's USB port. The battery also features a built-in heating system for keeping it warm even in colder weather.

Designed for Surf Board Recording
The HD Surf HERO provides you with the waterproof (180 ft / 60m) housing and mounts you need to record right from your board. The waterproof, polycarbonate housing is removable, and in the event of extreme destruction can be replaced easily with an optional housing
Professional Quality, Full HD Video
1080p, 960p, and 720p in 30 and 60 fps (720p). The HD HERO line of cameras offers three different HD resolutions, giving you three filming modes to capture the best angles for any given activity:

  • 1080p: 1920x1080 True HD featuring a 127° angle of view, 30 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
  • 960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170° angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 aspect ratio. See more of the action above and below than widescreen 16:9 resolutions can show
  • 720p: 1280x720 Ultra Wide HD featuring a 170° angle of view, both 30 and 60 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
5MP Photos, Automatically
HD HERO cameras can shoot hands-free, 5 megapixel photos automatically at 2 / 5 / 10 / 30 and 60 second intervals until the batteries die or the SD card is full (2.5 hours). Or set it to single shot, triple shot, or self timer for more traditional photo taking
HD HERO's Sound System
You'll only be hearing the sounds of your sport, not the howl of the wind with the HD HERO camera. The HD HERO uses 48kHz, AAC audio compression and a built-in mono microphone with AGC (Automatic Gain Control)
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, Built in Battery Warmer
The rechargeable 1100mAh lithium-ion battery (included) lasts for 2.5 hours of constant recording. It can be recharged to 80% capacity in just 2 hours when plugged into a computer's USB port, or in 1 hour when plugged into a USB compatible wall or car charger. Camera can also be used while charging...handy on road trips where it's fun to leave the camera rolling. Camera also features an integrated battery heating system for keeping your battery warm in winter activities
Shockproof, Waterproof to 180 ft (60m)
Don't let a little water, or even a ton of water get in the way of getting the shot. Proven in heavy surf from Hawaii to Tahiti, Southern Mexico to Northern California, HD HERO cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Waterproof to 180 ft (60m) and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt, GoPos are built to take a beating. Replacement lens kits are also available, so there's little worry of scratching the tempered glass lens while going for glory. Trash the housing in a massive crash? Replacements are available
NTSC/PAL Switchable
Features a switchable NTSC/PAL output for watching recorded video directly from the camcorder on your NTSC or PAL analog television
