Cool pics Shawn! We've got a GoPro but haven't tried attaching it to the handle yet.

I used an old broom handle that is hollow. Passed the rope through it and then secured it to the rope on both ends. At first this was a disaster because the camera was too heavy and it just flopped around and ended up pointing straight down. Next we tried taping the pole to the handle to keep it from spinning and again it moved around too much. Finally, I used some metal strips to brace against the side of the wake handle and the broom handle and taped them all in place. It worked perfectly for a while but the water eventually ate away at it and I had to take it all apart.

I'm going to go back into the secret laboratory and cook up a more permanent solution with an old handle I have lying around.

Shawn, on WakeWorld someone cooked up a pretty slick mount using PVC pipe and a T with plug in it.

That would certainly work better (and I wouldn't get stabbed by metal when the tape started to wear out!).

Edit: I see now how this could work perfectly... I'm going to Home Depot today!
