The Rides We Love: David Peterson

Sometimes you get an epic paddling day. In this case, Australian David Peterson finds a howling downwinder on Port Phillip Bay near Melbourne, Victoria. So howling in fact, that he doesn’t even have to paddle to get into the second glide in the clip. That’s a “Ride We Love” for sure.

Peterson is an avid downwind paddler and has been experimenting steadily with camera mounts. The one he used here was a PVC contraption attached by duct tape to the front of his board.

“There aren’t many people out there doing downwind vids and those that are tend to all look the same with either a helmet mount or low board mount,” Peterson says. “I’ve tried to get different angles that make it feel more like you’re there with us.”

Mission accomplished.
