Definitly get a Go Pro HD. The footage is gonna be beautiful and for skating you already get a death lense on the case. Go pros are in the 300's now so you it would let you have a little bit left over for accessories.
That camcorder is just not gonna be as versatile or as clean looking.
Go with the go pro fo sho.
