Newport Goes Bananas on Big Wednesday

Hurricane Marie Fills Newport's Coast With Massive Waves

For those that had the right size board and the right size "juevos", August 27th, 2014 quickly became the Number 1 day of their lives, thanks to Hurricane Marie.

MyGo got a call from O'Neill's Head of  Marketing the day before Big Wednesday asking for a grip of MyGo Mouth Mounts to give out to Jordy Smith, Timmy Reyes, and others from the O'Neill team to have for the big day.

Just before Big Wednesday in Newport, we got the call that the boys were in need of some MyGo Mouth Mounts.

Even through the early morning haze, everyone could tell that this day was going to be massive. It was already 18ft and building AND cleaning up as the morning went on.

With the size came a shift in the mood for the surfers paddling out - this was serious - and so most of the boys opted to go charge without the added worry of a GoPro®, except for two; Koa Smith and Ethan Carlston.

Koa was stoked to see us with an extra MyGo Mouth Mount because he left his at home. Props for charging with it, Koa!
Ethan managed to get shacked out of his mind on several bombs. Having the MyGo Mouth Mount landed him a feature with Surfline!

 Koa got an incredible barrel that clamped on him and stole his GoPro®, so please, if you find it send us the memory card at least!

Ethan got spit out of an incredible barrel with the MyGo Mouth Mount for the entire beach to see, and for the rest of us to see through his point of view!

This is what a massive cavern at Newport looks like. Relish it, because it doesn't happen often.
Ethan got deep on this one and said of this day, "One of the best days of my life.. and definitely the craziest day I've ever seen at home!"

Congrats to all of the chargers that got a giant gaping vision on Wednesday August 27, because most of us were plenty happy to just watch.

GoPro of the Winter - Winner



The King of soft-top barrel riding. WHO IS JOB


Jamie O'brien (@whoisjob) won the @GoPro of the Winter this year, and the $20,000 prize to go with it. Of the top 5 clips selected by the judges, 4 were filmed using homemade mouth mounts. This view has become increasingly popular in Surfing. Jamie said that, "it all starts from the preparation of your gear" when talking about capturing the wave of the winter. Having the battery charged and the right accessories is essential to getting good GoPro® footage.

Jamie also said, "once you start collecting clips, it's addicting." This is what we believe and know at MyGo Mount. It's extremely fun and addicting to capture a good shot to have for yourself and to share with your family and friends.

Brett Barley Mouth Mount Footage

Brett Barley is one of those dedicated surfers who manages to overcome his geographical limitations (North Carolina - NOT North Shore Oahu) by constantly diving into swell and wind charts, having an in-depth knowledge of the surrounding breaks, and having his equipment (including his GoPro® and mouth mount) ready to go at a moment's notice. 

The result of his hard work and preparation is highlight reel after highlight reel of deep chocolaty barrels that gets the rest of us wondering if we should add N.C. to our list of surf trip destinations. The guy makes it look easy, and has graciously shared his view with us. 

Check out the Smith Grudge Match on Surfline between Brett and Fisher Heverly. (Go to slide 6/9)

Brett also made it onto GoPro's YouTube Highlights Channel.

Alex Gray - Turkey Melt - GoPro Hero 3

Alex Gray frothing with his GoPro

Do you like barrels? I advise that you watch Slaber Nackle on Alex Gray's website Turkey Melt. It is a collection of "a fist full of slabs across the planet." In one of the best shots in the movie Alex is using the GoPro Hero 3+ and a mouth mount. He transfers the camera to get the behind view in this massive open barrel and then he casually looks back at the camera. Just the other day Alex messaged MyGo about our MyGo Mouth Mount for GoPro. We're excited to have him using our product and we can't wait to see the footage he is going to get.



LNF: Inside Out - Micronesia - Mouth Mount

Alex & Koa Smith are on board with the MyGo Mouth Mount for GoPro®. Their new video, Inside Out, is playing on their site  Point of View shots in surfing are becoming increasingly popular. All of the boys are now into getting images using the GoPro® mouth mount.



They are going to be receiving their MyGo Mouth Mounts soon! Click here to order your MyGo mouth mount today.



A Few Gems at "The Jewel"

La Jolla (correct spelling being La Joya) in Spanish means "The Jewel".  In sort of a surf inspired poetic way, MyGo user Andy Pierce shows us his view of a few "Gems" from a deep place using a GoPro® Mouth Mount. Follow Andy on Instagram @andy_piercer

Check out the Mouth Mount used by Andy. He shoots with the GoPro Hero 3+ using the 720 Superview at 100 fps.
