Looking to spend that money from Grandma? How about a video camera? Making your own skate films is not only fun - if you get good at it, and capture some great tricks (or bails!), people will want to watch it!
Check out this list of the top Best Video Cameras for Skateboarding, to get some ideas. Whatever you're looking for, it should be on the list - all the way from good deals to expensive pro-grade, and ones carried in your hand or mounted on your board or helmet. There's also a new camera that's been added to the list - the thing's the size of a tube of chapstick! Crazy.
If you've used any of these cameras, post what you think about them below. Include any links to videos you might have shot, so that we can see the quality.
