You have probably heard about GoPro cameras by now. The camera is small and does a fantastic job at recording action videos, including great audio. There are also so many accessories now making it easier to get amazing shots no matter where you are or what you are doing. So far my husband has taken his snorkeling and race car driving (see video below!). It lives up to the hype.
A GoPro camera would let your Dad/Spouse record, relive and share all of his adventures from snorkeling to skiing to cycling to car racing to surfing. Really the sky is the limit.
They have a variety of models, starting $129.99 and going up to $499.99. With accessories galore: hemet mounts, water proof cases, surf board mounts, car mounts, chest straps and the list goes on.
Still now sure, see one in action! Here is a snippet from my husband's last racing class at Skip Barber, filmed with a GoPro Hero 3+. And by the way, if you want to really treat dad, sign him up for a racing class, try Skip Barber's 1 Day Racing School and Intro to Racing. But I will warn you, it is addictive.
