GoPros are marketed towards the adventurous, so naturally lots of windsurfers have them.
They can capture our most EPIC moments when paired with the right mount. Imagine having video and pictures of that masterful duck jibe you nailed last week!! Not only does this provide evidence of your skill to friends and family, but it also gives you the opportunity to observe your technique and teach beginners!
As far as available mounts go, a shop favorite is the Clew-View Boom Mount. This mount extends out past the clew of the boom and captures images like this!
There are also options like the helmet, chest, mouth, and wrist mounts. The helmet and chest mounts will provide a more fixed angle, whereas the mouth and wrist mounts allow for more swivel.
If you are looking for more technical information from your last ride, the Xensr is worth a try. This little guy attaches to your board of choice and collects information such as max speed, max height, and paths of travel. All of which can be accessed once you plug the Xensr into a dock connected to your computer.
