Go pro accessories?

We are thinking about getting the kids a go pro for Christmas. What accessories do you guys recommend for wake boarding and surfing? Any accessories that are a waste of money?

The little orange life jacket float that you stick on the back window case would be #1 on my list.

Def floaty door!

I use my suction cup mount more than any other mount.

Go pole is great also.

Extra battery and memory card are something I picked up also.

They are awesome little cameras

Yea, the pole is the most used accessory for us. I just made my own pole out of a wooden dowel. I primed it and painted it with black enamel and found a rubber handle to slip on the end. Used it snowboarding and surfing for a couple of years, still looks great.

definitely the floaty back door. after that, not sure what is the best. really, variety seems to be the best for us. no matter how cool the shot, it gets boring watching after a while. with different mounts, i can edit film from different perspectives that seem more interesting. we use the go pole, suction, helmet, chest and any other mount we can think of. you can buy a "grab bag" of mounts that include both curved and flat stick on mounts for pretty cheap. we have them on all our helmets. for next year i'm going to make a rope mount for a 5' perspective infront of the rider. the nice thing about the mounts is that, for the most part, when you upgrade go pro's the mounts stay the same.

Yes^ and if you have a suction cup mount on it be sure to put a floating key chain on it also. They barely float with the mount on it
