Thanks for this video, I didn't want to drill into my kayak for a rod mount. This is so helpful!

I use a tether on mine as well. Its a great back up option. Does the low angle also help with reducing camera shake?

Best bow mount so far. Definitely doing this as it's a lot better than the method I used, THANKS

Is that a Pelican Trailblazer 100? If not, mind telling me what model it is? Just curious if this will also work on mine. Thanks!

+Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" Ok, cool. I checked and unfortunately mine (Pelican Trailblazer 100 from Dick's Sporting Goods) doesn't have those eyelets to run the vented helmet strap through. Think I'll end up using the GoPro Jaw Mount to clamp on the dashboard area. Thanks for your help!

What do you find is the best way to capture sound when filming on a kayak? I find with the water proof enclosure most sounds is blocked and any commentary that you might make is not picked up. Thanks

Do you think SuperView would be great for kayaking?
Kyle Martin Tech
Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" - 6 years ago
Super view us cool, but it is nothing really special and as I lean more about it, could total be done with a HERO3 and some tricky editing.

where did you find that mount?
Kyle Martin Tech
Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" - 6 years ago
The mount is the vented helmet strap mount. You can find it here http://amzn.to/1qnqXNf

For fiberglass kayaks the suction cup mount is best for quick setup and diverse point of view.

Do you think this mount would work ok when doing an eskimo roll or surf kayaking?

It sounds like you have put some thought in to this and I think it would work. I would just tie the camera on the first few times you use it. If it fails you will probably have to move on to your second idea of through bolting it.

I am learning how to white water kayak and I would like to ask you a question about a face fronting mount. If you sand it down (get all the rough spots out) then clean it with rubbing alcohol then put a regular flat (my kayak is flat in front) sticky mount and t hen to make sure get epoxy and put it around the bottom of the mount. Do you think that this will fall off easy? And I will have it hooked on to my kayak with a tether. If not should I drill into the middle of it and put a bolt?
Kyle Martin Tech
Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" - 7 years ago
There have been problems with the sticky mounts staying of thing like kayaks because of the texture.
Kyle Martin Tech
Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" - 7 years ago
That would be a good Idea

Kyle Martin Tech "GoPro Tips and Tricks" - 7 years ago
Sweet it would be nice to be able to attach using just the suction cup mount. I have not come across any thing with pre-made mounting spots yet but I will keep my eye open.

I just stuck my adhesive mount on my kayak, put the floaty backdoor on it, tie a sting to the screw on the gopro and tie it to a strap on my kayak. Pretty simple. (I put the string to the gopro b/c im paranoid)

Good idea esp the double securing...just upgraded my kayak and interesting to note that there is a round smooth area on the deck in front of the cockpit perfect size for attaching the GoPro Suction mount to. Apparently same applies to a lot of SUP's, surfboards & windsurfers seems a lot of manufacturers catering for GoPro users.

Not a bad idea if push comes to shove. You might try putting something under the mount to help stabilize it.

I mounted a sticky mount to my kayak in the same place. And I used some marine rope to tie it to the clip on the kayak. So almost the same
