Thanks for the interest. The video part of the page was incorrectly linked with an update to the site. It is fixed now. Sorry about the confusion with that. The Mount rotates around to maintain the Camera primarily level. The mount works with all versions of the GoPro camera. The mount works with all kites that have an opening behind the center strut in order to wrap the velcro around to secure the mount. The mount is designed to be secure on the strut and therefore produce smooth video with minimal editing. Hope you enjoy the site and get a chance to give the SKORD mount a try.

I originally thought that the opening on my Core kites went just past the one pump nozzle ( at the curved part of the strut). It's much bigger. I was wrong looks like it could work with them.
I would like to see some wave footage too.
What model Core do you have? The GT from 2008 does not look like it will work. There is room for maybe one strap only.
I have the Riot XR2's. Turns out it could work with the 13.5, just maybe on the 9, not on the 6. The opening gets smaller as kite sizes get smaller (the opening goes just passed the one pump nozzle on the 6). Back to... that's not good.
With the kite fully inflated there is so much tension on the canopy the opening feels way smaller. Best to check them when deflated.
I wanted to let you know that the entire plate that mounts on the kite is only 6 inches long. From the outside of each straps measures 5 inches. As long as your kite has the 5 inches of clearance and the camera can spin freely, you are good to go. Hope this helps. SKORD Mount should be shipping soon. Thanks
