Hello @sunnycave56818


When the camera is recording and the screen is pressed (intentionally or accidentally probably due to incidental water waves), the option for auto exposure appears. Since the Auto Exposure is a setting, the wrench icon appears on the front screen. Closing (ex-ing out of) the feature makes the wrench icon disappear. To prevent this from happening while surfing, you can opt to turn on or activate the Lock Screen feature. 


When the Lock Screen is on, you will still be able to navigate through the camera through the following steps:

To change Modes (video, picture, time lapse) press the side Mode/power button when the camera is not recording.
To access settings, Press the Mode/power button and shutter when the camera is not recording and the settings menu will display on the front LCD.
To unlock the rear LCD, turn the camera on (if not already on) and swipe down on the rear LCD and choose unlock.


Hope this helps. 


Best regards,
