Handle mount. A bit bulky, but does the trick.

I have a great mount that has a metal "hook" to pass the rope through and the camera automatically follows the skier/rider. My neighbor at the lake liked it so much he fabricated one for his boat out of spare parts laying around.



We mess around with go pro mounts on the handle, on the skis, on helmets, on chest mounts, on leg mounts, and on the rope. All good for a little mix in but none are good for extended viewing.

Pic of the tower mount with hook for direction?

Sure, here you go. My neighbor made his own from random materials he had based on mine

I borrowed a home made mount from a fellow TT'r and made this video. I need to make one of my own.

thanks, it has helped take probably a thousand hours of video over the years, never have to worry about the boat spray getting in the way like it can with a hand held camera...no tired arms, works like a charm

I made a DIY handle mount with some PVC pipe and fittings. Works well although I rarely use it since itís cumbersome to bring on the boat.
