How to Attach GoPro to Paddle Board
- Nose Mount
- Make sure to clean the nose of your SUP. Any wax or debris will compromise the adhesive hold. You can get a good cleaning with rubbing alcohol and soap and water.
- Most mounts give you a mount for the camera and a mount for the leash (If you don’t get a mount for the leash, just leash the camera to your
d-ring). Line up the mount with the center of the board.
- Remove the back from the adhesive and firmly press the mount into place. Let the adhesive dry a good 24 hrs before taking it on the water.
Nextattach the leash to the leash mount, and then to the camera case.
- Lock the GoPro in place on the mount and you’re ready to catch some surf on camera!

- When mounting the camera to your paddle, you want to attach it to the back side of the paddle. This way, when you bring the paddle back up, you’re getting the perfect shot.
- You want to play around with the angle till you find one that works for you. If the angle is bad, you’ll get nothing but the sky.
It’s easy to get your GoPro up and running and capture every moment of your adventures.
