Mark you peice of wood. the center and where the bolts for the trucks go through. The size of wood doesnt matter as long as its not to small or too big i just used i peice that i found laying around but if you want to use the same size it was 2.5" by 3.5". 

Step 3: Drill

This is a really good idea, I think i may do it for my step-bro with a piece of cutting board instead of wood. He'd love it. oh, BTW what kind of camera is that?

its a real cheap camera that i won in a contest store price was about $30 i think and the cutting board is a good idea thats what i was planning on doing but i found this peice of wood the was already the perfect shape so i used it to save time

Does the camera rattle/shake when riding at high speeds? Do you need a foam or rubber insulation?

This is a really great idea, not just for skate shots, but for filming action as well for a conventional movie scene.
Question; is there enough clearance to mount the camera out front and 'under' the board surface? That would put the lens just above the ground for really 'fast' perspective...

there is enough clearance under my board but there is nowhere for me to mount it because the trucks are in the way but some other boards might have room
