If he wanted to direct you toward a particular mount he’d have done so. But his blog is cool.

forget the uncomfortable; the unit looks incredibly stupid and I only can take footage with that contraption on my head where nobody else is around
Actually it is very uncomfortable and throws my head out of balance. Rolling with it in the surf was particularly tricky. It is not something I would wear regularly but only for very short time to capture what I want and then take it off.
Unlike on full face motorcycle helmets where the fit is super snug against the head/face, the tiny straps of a kayak helmet are not a very good retention for an extension arm with camera on it, not to mention that the wearer has to control the motion of the spin.
To think of it: fabrication took more than a week (counting the curing of the carbon plate), capturing footage took an hour or so, edit took a few days. Result: a few seconds of footage made it to the final cut.
That’s a great way to put it. Sometimes I feel that way with just my regular cameras. It’s not like I’m doing anything so amazing or extreme to warrant capturing it on film, but I just like getting the footage and editing it later. It’s like a diary of all my paddling endeavors.
So I’m guessing you leave the spinning rig on land while you’re not using it?
