Hi guys,

I'm looking forward to buy a Go-Pro and I'm wondering which is the best accessorie to take pictures while kitesurfing?

Is the one that holds the camera to the lines, to the fins or the stick you hold with your hand? Or any other?

Comments and experiences are welcome!

Thanks,
Lucas

I just mount it on my helmet with supplied mounts. The most important accessory is a floating device so you don't lose it under water.

If you are going to buy a GP then do yourself a favor and by the plus model of which ever edition you buy. I bought the new Hero 3 GP when iy came out and thought the picture was great. Then I saw the + model of my version ( Silver ) and immediatly wished I had waited.

I think its good to have as many as possible mounts to be able shoot in different angles ... I think my most used accessory for GoPro the "stick" with a floater ... mostly used to shoot others when riding , or planting it in sandy shore as a monopad ...

Agree best to have a bunch but my fav is the camrig line mount. http://camrig.com/line-mount/gopro-hero3-line-mount you have to be careful though depending on how your kite flags out. It has little rubber parts that grip to your lines and holds it in place. They say use all 4 but im on a naish universal bar which flags to one line. I just dont use the rubber parts on that line. It has become detached from the line on that side before but you get some good shots.
