Looking for the best underwater sports action camera to take on your next surfing road trip or a family beach holiday? Well, you're in good hands!

Yep, for just under $50 you can probably grab yourself a great action cam bargain deal. Or, why not get a couple? Just make sure you have enough room in your rucksack or suitcase to store them in.

When I used to spend my glory days surfing, I use to love nothing more than to take out my GoPro action-cam out and strap it to my foam board with some duck tape. I wouldn't recommend using duck tape, of course.

I would capture some great shots, though, I wasn't so good with recording videos. Part of that reason was that the quality wasn't quite up to the standards of today's cameras. I'm going back almost 12 years now.

Anyhow, enough reminiscing, perhaps I'll get back in the water soon. Here's my list of 5 best budget underwater sports action-cams to check out.

  1. Dragon Touch Vision 3 4K Action Camera 16MP Underwater Waterproof Camera.
  2. Campark ACT74 Action Camera 16MP UHD 4K underwater with Wide Angle Lens. (Check out our review)
  3. DBPOWER N5 Pro Action Camera
  4. FITFORT Action Camera 4K 16MP Wi-Fi Ultra HD Waterproof Sport Camera.
  5. Crosstour 4K Action Camera 16MP WiFi Underwater Cam.

Now let's take a closer look at each cam.
