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.

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.
