Do you have a gimbal of some type to keep your camera so steady while in the wake of other boats? Or do you just have an immensely steady hand? Great video, thank Dave!

It's an DJI OSMO+ camera with 3 axis gimbal. All those wood boats made HUGE wakes and we were being tossed about. The OSMO+ does a super job of stabilizing. I have put it up on the end of an 8ft pole handheld for some neat drone like footage. Next time I might put it on my 20ft mast on the boat to get some real 'aerial' shots. You can control it manually or remotely with iPhone or iPad. Slick camera!
