Due to the fact that GoPro cameras are waterproof and weatherproof it can capture excitement of whatever activities you enjoy, GoPro has a variety different models to choose from depending on what you are going to do with it.

These little cameras are getting more and more popular with kids and adults because they are very easy to use right from the box it’s all ready to capture action that you want to share with friends or family or even on social media and they are an inexpensive way to see in first person view the action of any sport.

For example, this weekend, GoPros will be used during the CNY sled hockey tournament, another accessory you can buy is a head strap which stretches around the hockey helmet .

The footage captured during play will allow viewers to get a feel of what it is like to be in the actual sled on the ice competing.  The use of this technology will hopefully attract more individuals that want to try this sport.
