Look at this...looks fantastic!

But, isn't that dangerous too? Doesn't it get tangled in the lines???

Pole with a counterweight - it's not controlled, really...

there are plenty of DIY tutorials on the web like this one:



I still wouldn't use it for kiting though. It's inevitably going to get tangled in the lines if you send the kite up for a jump. Just look at that guy and see how scared he is to move. He's hardly able to plow the water back and forth.

But it sure looks great for mountain biking (see min 2:49):

It works pretty well and the pole just bounces off your lines without getting tangled. You can control the cam if you weight one side more than the other. Just tilt your head. Made one of these three years ago. The best is to use two go pro's one on each side. That way you always have a good angle and perfect counterbalance.
