Hey guys, this is bound to be of interest! I have just launched a new Kickstarter project which allows you to mount a GoPro to a wakeboard. Please take a look and if you like it back/share it and spread the word. Its only been up and running a couple of days and I have already been approached by Chad Sharp to test it. SSSwweeeettttt
I attach mine to helmets, the side of the boat, I cut a hockey stick in half and half a sticky mount there as well. I have been thinking about attaching it to my board somehow, the idea up there ^^^ seems pretty neat. depends on which go pro you have and what you want but i have the hero 2 set at 720p and 60 fps. this allows me to slow it down really nice to about 20% in FCP. If you have a H3 black or + you can do 1080p at 60fps or more. anything 60fps or higher will allow nice looking slo mo shots! hope this helps! and kill it with this awesome camera!
I have built two different poles. They work good and I have built them each for about $5 a piece. I have one that is made out of conduit and I use the handle bar mount on the end and it is about 30 inches long. The other one I have is made out of some outdoor 1/2 inch pvc and it is about 35inches long and there is a handle bar mount on the end of that one. I made that one in two pieces and it screws together so that I can fit it in my backpack when I'm snowboarding. I used bike grips for the handles on each.
Has anybody tried using the chesty mount when wakeboarding?
I've used the chesty, I almost like it better than a helmet cam its lower and more in the action. You can get a good view of the handle all the way to the boat and looks pretty cool especially with a nice sunset. heres a pick of us using the chesty
