All of the above. Mix up the footage in your video ;) so you'll need more than one camera :lol:

I like the behind the back pole mount attached to a backpack.
Shows the rider and what they are seeing too.

Cool POV!

Line mount is the best way to go. I use a helmet mount mostly if I want footage of other people, and maybe the location. But video of what you yourself are doing, gotta be a line mount, or get a Soloshot.





Here's what you can get with a Soloshot:

The silver has a remote, right? I would use the silver the places where you can't reach the camera, so you can stop and start and change settings while flying. Your other cameras can go on your helmet or board etc. where you can operate it by hand.

I think the wizmount back pack is by far the best footage

I quite like the new board mount which screws on the fins too.
