I'd like to see how you guys are mounting cameras to your Waves.
I did see the PVC mount that Creative made to go behind his tiller crossbar, but I'd like to see some more methods you guys are using for mounting cameras. Pics would be great!

Thanks, Jim

That thing is awesome!
And it's waterproof! Perfect!
I'll probably get one.
This is the first I've heard of it. I own a quadcopter and I'm involved in the R/C hobby, but this is the first I've heard of it.
I also expected it to cost more.

Thanks for sharing, Jim

Nobody's willing to share their camera mount set ups?
I've seen where some guys have a pole mounted on the bow of their Wave for a camera. Anyone care to share how they did that? What kind of pole is it? How is it attached to the boat? How is the camera mounted to the pole?

Any other camera mount ideas to share?

Jim

Thanks Creative. You've got a lot of great ideas, and I love your videos.
What's this one do?

I did watch the video, but didn't get it until now. It looked like maybe you had some friends in a kayak that I assumed were taking video of you as you sailed by, but now I get it.

Another great idea!

Thanks,
Jim

That's one great way to do it!
Do you have a diagram to do it? I'd like to make one for my wave.
Thanks

Alex

I have no diagrams, just build it on you Hobie Wave and use the photos I gave you to help. Just make it work. :D

Thanks creative.

For the floating camera mount, what materials did you use? The floating piece...

1" plywood with a fin on the bottom made out of the same 1" plywood.
