    What go pro.....

    mounts are you using on your skis?

    I recently picked up a Hero2 surf edition and was wondering what the best mount to use was.

    thx in advance..

    There are some sticky mounts in the box, not sure if they're ok to use so I figured I'd ask which was best. So the suction cup is ok to use on a ski? I thought they said it's not reccomended for high impact use. I'm kind of a rough out on the ski so I wasnt sure it would hold up.

    This is the mount that came in the box....

    i am not sure how much I would trust the suction cup to stay on. I am sure it would work but i might throw a couple piece of duct tape on it or something for some added insurance.

    I got the motorsports one,suck cup stays on great. I tie a rope on mine just in case, rope tied to gopro then big knot on other end and close hood with knot inside or back seat.

    What you have there, is the Surfboard mount. It's not going to be any use to you on a PWC. Get the "motorsports" mount kit, or just the suction cup mount, out of that kit. Also, attach so brightly colored key-chain floaties to the camera, and tether it to the boat, just in case.
    Sticky mounts work fine too. But, once they're stuck, they're very difficult to remove. Same precautions apply with the floaties and a lanyard. There is at least 1 Go Pro HD on the bottom of Lake Havasu. Sticky mount on the hood, big wave hit the boat, broke the camera off where it mounts to the sticky mount. Wasn't mine, but I wanted the footage off of it......

    Thanks guys! I went and picked up the suction cup mount and some string to tie it off with like mentioned above. Seemed to hold up just fine today and I feel better not having to put sticky mounts on the ski
