    which GoPro Mount works best??

    Got a GoPro not to long ago and want to take some videos on my ski. Was wondering which attachment mount you guys suggest to use. would like to take some video out the back for when jumping and some pointing out the front. Any suggestions would help thanks!!!

    I've used both the sticky mounts as well as suction cup mounts... Both work well..

    The suction mount you can obviously take off and the sticky mount wether it's a curved mount of a flat.. Is stuck to the ski..

    Just make sure no matter what way you decide to mount your camera, you tether it!! A cheap 2 dollar tether is well worth it when a mount fails...

    I like the RAM ball mount. Mine is attached on the handle bar left side and is easy to adjust different angles. RAM products are sold on Amazon. Most others I read about use the suction mount with a tether so you can move it around.

    I like the adhesive mounts and the RAM mount products. I beat the hell out of my skis on Lake Michigan and the adhesive mounts hold strong.

    I use the suction cup with no issues and it's probably the most versatile of the mounting devices but like others have said you need to use a tether just in case.

    I have had good luck with the GoPro suction mount like others mentioned always have it tethered just in case.

    Suction cup may be ok on smooth water but I would never trust it. The adhesive mounts are strong as hell..

    I've used it in plenty of rough water and it wasn't an issue..

    Just remember do not keep camera in one place. Nothing more boring than the same camera angle for minutes at a time. The rear shot is one I use the least.

    I couldn't agree more. I use a multitude of mounts while on my ski...everything from head strap, handle bar mount, and the suction cup. Since I find purchasing an official GoPro extension rod (or what ever its called) for $40 I went to Home Depot and bought a $1.50- 3' piece of 1" PVC and attach the GoPro to the handle bar mount and mount that to the end of the PVC. You obviously cant go jumping wakes like that but it does make for another cool angle.

    Just my ˘2
