How not to lose your Go Pro…

Go Pro cameras have changed the way kayaking films are made. With cameras mounted on helmets, kayaks and even paddles now the viewer can now get closer to the action than ever before. Most kayakers are using the adhesive mounts to attach the Go Pro to their kit and although they’re pretty tough, they’re not 100% reliable.

I’ve knocked 3 sticky pads off this season already – one from a flipped raft hitting the Go Pro and twice  when boofing drops with the camera mounted on the bow of my kayak. Like this:

(Got to love that paddle face…)

Without a leash, you will lose your Go Pro. Luckily, they’re easy to fit – even a shoe lace or cable tie is enough to keep it attached to you. I’m using a camera lanyard  larks-footed through the hinge of the camera case and then tied to my helmet, or the grab handle on my Burn.
