Top 5 Accessories For Wakeboarding

Capturing yourself while wakeboarding is all about getting the right angles. With the GoPro cameras you have a number of ways to record yourself and you can choose from which angle your captured footage will look best.

1. GoPro Board Mounts

The best point for video capturing is from your board and it can be done by attaching the camera right on your board itself. The camera is attached on a baseplate that is installed a foot from the tip of the board.

This mount will let you have a third person view so that you can record a video of you on the board while doing stunts. But make sure that you tilt the camera at least 30-45 degrees upwards so you can get the full view.

2. Gopro Wriststrap

You can attach your camera to a lanyard and tie it around your wrist for a first person vie of your water sports adventure. But to get a good shot you may have to hold the camera at an angle.

While this makes for a cheap alternative than others, it can become quite cumbersome and the shots ay come out too shaky. Another accessory you can use is a wrist housing.

With this, you can secure the GoPro camera flat against your wrist instead of having it dangle from your wrist. This is much more convenient because when you want t record, all you have to do is pivot your arm upright. This will also leave your hands and arms free for when you aren’t recording with the camera. You will also be able to get in quite a few different shots from varied angles with this one.
