Tim Boal: 'hey, are you a robot?'

Helicam International teamed up with Extreme Sports photographer Dom Daher to shoot aerial photos of world class surfer Tim Boal.

Watch the 'Making Of' video showing a behind-the-scenes look at how the pictures were taken. The helicopter was launched from the pier at Hendaye, France.

In the end of the day, the crew added a flash device to capture intense surfing in rare conditions. Is this the future of pro surfing photography in international contests?

Helicam International provides a complete High Definition package with 3-CCD 1080i HD cameras.

The custom designed remote-controlled helicopters can acquire dramatic aerial footage that is unobtainable by any other means.
