I put my GoPro HERO3 Black Edition to good use during our recent kayak and hiking trip to Chinaman’s Hat (Mokolii Island). Of course, I’m always a bit weary whenever I take my GoPro into the water with me, especially after this incident en route to the Mokulua Islands (see third paragraph). In fact, this trip almost ended in another GoPro tragedy. As we were carrying the kayak to the shore of Kualoa Beach, I noticed that my GoPro, attached to my GoPole, was nowhere in sight. I had left it on the trunk of my buddy’s car, in plain view. Had I not remembered until later, it probably would be in someone else’s hands. Fortunately, that didn’t happen. And we have these photos to show for it.
