    GO PRO 3 tips

    Got a Hero 3 for X-Mas and I am trying to figure the best way to mount it to my XPL. Any suggestions?

    I heard the suction cup mount works well. That's what I'm going to try first. I just purchased one of these just encase.

    I just put one of the adhesive mounts on my hood. Works awesome and no worries about it coming loose. I have crashed it through many big waves and it has held. Definitely get the floaty for it. keep in mind though, the floaty will not work with the suction cup mount. I would go with one of the adhesive mount.

    I've never had a problem with the suction cup mount. But I always have it strapped to the ski.

    Suction cup is probably fine for flatter water. Where I ride I would never trust a $300 device to a suction cup, especially a $300 device that doesn't float.

    There now many ways to mount the camera..but always always tie a lanyard rope of some kind to the ski.....play it safe...I like the 3m stickem base mounts..one facing forward on hood,and one facing toward the side base on the footwell in front...never had one come off..but the best most versidal one is the chest harness...you can film and point it anywhere ,just walk around and film..don't forget to give your buddies those small base mounts...get you in action!..don't worry a hairdryer heat can remove those bases...G/L

    NICE! Thanks. Any pics out there? I think that the adhesive mount will need a flat area.
