Hero 5 Audio help for beach video tomorrow

Hey all. I am kind of new to this and I plan to do a documentary tomorrow here in Mexico on the beach. There will be some wind so I am wondering what settings are recommended for my audio? I don't think I will be able to buy the external mic adapter and set up. Would recording on my phone be a better idea? Or try to just buy a external mic ?
Thank you

Record plus ios app (free)

 

or

 buy a promic at a store 50.00 and a external mic?

 

if you buy a mic for your Iphone, just use your ear buds that came  with it?

 

I test it all out now and not on the beach when  you are doing your real video.

 

If a iphone mic is bought it has to be a 4 pin not  three pin?

 

Use Manual wind 

 

good luck
