This is a simple and cheep alternative to the excellent boom and mast mount device for windsurfing, Flymount. Don´t miss out our Action camera and windsurfing mount section here on boardtests. We have tested the Flymount boom and mast mount aswell as harnesmounts like the K4 harness mount and the Wizmount – backpack sulution.
GoPro Spring Clamp windsurfing boom and mast mount
At first the Spring Clamp construction was an emergency solution. The construction however proved it self to be a great and flexible budget alternative to the well known Flymount. I bought the Spring Clamp at my nearest hardware store and high quality nylon cable ties. Make sure that you buy nylon cable ties, the plastic dito will not do the job.
Even though the construction and the boom and mast mount feels rock solid I always use a safety line as shown in the picture.
The budget alternative vs Flymount
+ Easy to move around (change the position in few seconds)
+ Simple construction
+ Rock solid mounting and construction
– The looks? )
– Not quite as flexible as the Flymont (camera angels)
– GoPro construction – The Flymount works with a wide range of different cameras
