Who is tired of having GoPro mounts break??? Does anyone wonder why a camera that is designed for high speed, high impact sports has the weakest and cheapest mounts ever created??

Who has been looking for a stronger mount that can be used on high impact sports such as snowboarding and wakeboarding??

I wakeboard, snowboard, whitewater kayak, rock jump and I have broke just about every mount out there. I literally spend about $5.00 per wakeboard run because it is guaranteed that the mount will break by the end of the run.

I have started building stronger GoPro mounts that will resist high impacts better than the standard GoPro mounts sold in stores. We build the mounts out of strong aluminum and will be selling them soon.

Stay tuned for details!!

Really? My mounts have been fine for me. To answer your question though I have not seen stronger mounts for the gopro bein sold. Or at least marketed as "STRONGER MOUNTS"

I've snapped a couple of tabs off the quick release mounts, but only when Trying to remove the camera never when I use (not that I do any strenuous activaties with them yet)

Sounds good, I hope they are affordably priced. You should set up a kickstarter if you haven't already. I would donate to the cause.

Due to the fact that the GoPro is on the board and needs a "Floaty BacPac" I have to use a couple extensions to give the BacPac enough room to bend back and look up.
I have found a few flaws in the Mounting Design. I think that there should be teeth on the connecting arms instead of two smooth surfaces that have little friction.
I have also had problems with the adhesive not sticking.
I realize that is from the high impact of landing on the water after jumping the wake but I still believe that these things should have been thought of.

I sure as **** can't move the joints once I've tightened em up with a screw driver but going wake-to-wake on a wakeboard or even taking the jump into the flat water puts a lot more torque on the joints than I am able to personally put on the joints.

There are some folks making aluminum pieces, such as vector mount, including bar clamps, but I don't know of any that you could use to mount to a surfboard or wakeboard. But I think the problem will always be the camera housing. Have you broken that? Are you thinking about building a better housing?

A few out there already

I use aluminum mounts whenever I attach to a vehicle. The G forces are just way higher on a car or motorcycle, especially for off-road stuff. I like http://heromount.com for roll cage mounting. I also want the mount to be bolted on not the quick release style. They named it quick release for a reason. I'm pretty sure that metal mounts are more solid and wiggle less than the plastic ones do too.
