Safely self-launch with a line-mount GoPro?

Postby RadDrDuke » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:38 am

I have a camrig and use it occasionally but only when I have an assist launch. The videos are by far the best you can get with a GoPro.

I would like to use it more but I self-launch frequently and it's pretty sketchy self launching with it weighing/tangling on your lines as anyone who has tried knows.

Does anyone have a technique or device that allows the to safely and easily self-launch with a line-mount GoPro rig? I would love to hear it.

Tethered launches help.
