Looks mighty narrow. How deep are those channels.

The trails we ride are tidal so they range from 15' to 2'. Most of the video was at a 10' tide. They are way more fun at a lower tide and a lot narrower. Just trying to get the video the setup right so those where pratice videos. More to come

Very stable video. What were you using in the way of equipment & mounts?Was it electronically stabilized?
Narrow? It reminds me of blood traveling through veins!

We are using a Canon waterproof camera that takes video, and strapping it to the helmet. The only thing done to the video is it is coverted from quicktime to avi so I can edit it with Movie Maker.

Nice riding and shooting.
I was trying to swerve in my computer chair to avoid the logs and debris.
I went riding in channels like that once. Never again. I found out I was in 2 feet of water (and 4 feet of mud) and was certain that I would damage something.

Here is a pic of my buddy he ended 60 feet up the mud, the way the sun was shining off the mud it look like water, he had that 1300 pinned when he wiped out. It rolled twice and didn't break a thing, he was pulling mud out of the handle bars for a month
