The ones that don't look like a snorkel (e.g. official gopro) fold and hook over the harness hook when not in use a lot easier. You can also use them as a tripod stand if you want to film stuff from a stationary point.
Good one, thanks!

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

Thanks guys, having a lanyard round my neck doesn't sound that safe (getting washed in a wave and have it tangle around lines etc.) but I'll figure out how to attach it safely and stash it. Thanks!

Re: Mouth Mount for GOpro, high probability of injury the face?

I like the footage with this mount, but I'd say it's impossible to leave it in your mouth for a long session, where do you guys leave it if not in your mouth? Tucked away under your lycra?

Check out https://www.ugokiteboardingwest.com/ Interesting product; is it flexible? Hard to tell from the video. Also: when inserting ...

Re: Beastmount breakage, your opinions?

I have beastmount and it survived at least 15 sessions.. even one when the kite popped the strut after the tomahawking.. maybe I am lucky.. but I usually use it in "melow" conditions.. Never want anything on my lines when I am crazy powered... I also remember hearing someone complaining about one.....

Re: Cape town / Witsand - Kite sizes mid February

There's witsand beach near Scarborough on the peninsula and Witsand 300km east of CT, correct me if I'm wrong. Witsand beach is a great wave spot but you can have a good time there on your TT as well. I was there last week, 7 and 5m where the most used sizes. Can be windy when Blouberg is still wait...

Beastmount breakage, your opinions?

Just wondering about your opinions on the following : used my beastmount V1 for the first time in Capetown last week, it broke to pieces after 5 min. My gopro dropped in the ocean but luckily because of the floater I could save it just on time. I contacted their customer support and got a quick repl...

Re: Vanguard- FCS or Futures?

Just my 2c: Started last year with a thruster set up on my VG 5'2" and later switched to a very simple F4 Quad Thermotech setup (50 euros for a 5 fin set). This totally transformed the board for me! From a very capable board, but not much better than my former North pro series, it is now so much mor...

Re: New Ride Engine harness review

I've just used the hexcore in Brazil: daily downwinders and no more backpain in spite of kiting every day for 4-5 hours! I also brought my Jaybar (using it for the past 2 years with great satisfaction!) and was able to use it on the RE by feeding the PU loop directly through the steel where the webb...
