DIY GoPro Bodyboard Mount - Using the GoPro Surfboard mount.


First of all, the goods, here is a quick edit of my first test this morning in very lack-lustre conditions.

Random GoPro tinkering...

 So for my recent 30th birthday I got a GoPro Hero 3 (Black Edition) from Kristie, so that is a new toy which I am starting to play with, and I am hoping to get cracking on a little video project  soon.

I also got a voucher for a few mounts/accessories, so I am currently playing with a chest-mount predominantly but I am starting to look around and find some GoPro hacks, as well as playing with my own ideas.


Here's my chest-mount view on a little ride down to the beach on my Yamaha TW200.

The first home-made GoPro hack is an extender-arm for the GoPro mounts I cut and made at work, which I made to play with in the ocean. It allows me to wear my GoPro Chesty backwards and get a cool 3rd person view whilst riding waves. Conditions weren't great for my test, but I am more or less happy with the results.

Keen to get this (with improvements) in to some real waves.

Very keen to work on some improvements, and add this angle to my arsenal, and more importantly get some fun footage in real waves.

Living and Loving...

So this past week, aside from turning 30, I proposed to my long-suffering girlfriend, (now fiance) Kristie.
Very happy to say the least.

It's us, and we're engaged.
