Since I have been off injured it has given me a lot of spare time! Time that I never used to have because I was kayaking as much as possible. A lot of people said that this time off could be a good thing and will allow me to get other things done and sort out my direction in life! Profound and definitely true!!!
I have had a lot of time to work on the up coming film which I must say is coming along nicely! It has also given me more time to sort out how to film better! With the expertise of Alan, my dad, we have come up with a number of sweet contraptions that im going to share with you over the next while. First up is our Gopro mount system. I wanted something that I could put on and take off with ease on any river trip. I wanted something that as light and tough. I wanted something that could be moved from back to front with ease. I came up with an idea of integrating the mount into the grabloop of the kayak. I have seen a lot that mount here but this means getting rid of your grabloop. With some alterations to design we came up with the removable mount/grabloop system. Check it out!
-The Mount/grabloop system attached to boat
-Simply angle Gopro toward kayaker and tie it on just incase
We made 2 of these so one can be attached to front and one on the back. That way you can switch it round throughout the river trip. The attachment rod does stick up a little bit but its nothing too serious. We have tested it out (not me obviously) and it works great! I cant wait to be fixed so I can enjoy using this out there!!
