On Saturday afternoon, my friend Domen came to Bled to have an extended (3 hours) paddle training surf session at lake Bled. I do it almost daily on this spot and the sights of magnificent lake of Bled are just amazing from the water surf point of view. With the island with the church in the middle and the castle on the rock above it, it just sounds too dreamy to be true . . .

Our friend Ažbe borrowed us his GoPro water sports camera, which we placed on the nose of a surfboard  and off we were to an extra long paddle training session at Lake Bled.

It’s true we were paddling for three hours, but this time with GoPro camera, it was so much fun. As almost as there would be surfable waves at lake Bled at that day. Well, maybe not so much fun, but still a lot better than just paddling. 🙂

A small disadvantage of the GoPro camera is, that it dosen’t have any kind of display which would let you know, what you are recording or photographing. But this is not a big problem, as it has a super wide-angle lens. Before using it, I was worried about not getting the things I want to record in the lens line of sight. But after seeing the pictures and movies it made . . . now I know, I only have to be careful, to hide unwanted things from the GoPro super wide-lens. For example, the duck tape on the surf board 🙂

There was a lot of people on rented boats going to the Bled Island, so we were experiencing some heavy boat traffic around the water around us. Despite the crowd, we manged to find open fields of water, without the boats constantly “dropping in the good soul waves” and record some awesome videos of Lake Surfing @ lake Bled.

The underwater , duck dive and over paddle scenes are just blended beautifully with the dreamy song Porcelain, produced by Moby.

Enjoy watching Deep Soul Surfing @ Lake Bled
