How to Attach Your Go Pro to Your Slyde Handboard

2 min read

From the Guys over at Npi productions

Today we're going to teach you how to get your Go-Pro set up on your Slyde Hand Board. What's up, guys?  This is Dalton Smith with MPI Productions and today we're going to talk about setting up our Go-Pro on your Slyde Hand Board.

Go pro placement  Options

You have a few options for setting your Go-Pro up on your board.  The safest, most convenient is going to be using FCS fin board on the front of your board.  Slyde was good enough to set us up with these built in already, so all you need to do is go pick yourself up a Go-Pro FCS fin plug mount.  And these guys are just a couple bucks.  They're right in here in your little FCS fin plug.  Drop it in.

Make sure your Gopro is safe and secure

At any surf shop you can find yourself a crank key.  Crank this guy down.  Make sure it's nice and tight and it's not going anywhere.  And like I said, this is probably the safest way to mount your Go-Pro to the board.   You just need to get your Go-Pro, drop it down inside of here, get your pin, pop it in, tighten it down.

Which way to face your Go pro 

You can do this in either direction.  You can have your Go-Pro facing back towards yourself and you can also take it out and have your Go-Pro facing outward to get shots looking out the barrel. The last thing we're going to talk about is Go-Pro settings.  A lot of people ask me what I shoot in.  It depends on what I want.  If I know I'm just going to be doing a bunch of regular clips, I always shoot in 1080 just to get the maximum quality I can.

Go Pro settings

If I think I'm going to slow down a little bit, I'll shoot in like 960 to 100.  Sometimes 720, and I think it's 120 now. The Go-Pro 3 Black Edition has 240, which is sick for slow motion.  It is a little bit grainier because you're using a lower quality.  So, if I'm out and it's huge barrels, I'm like I've got to get slow motion, I'll do that. But If I were to recommend what setting to use all the time, either 1080 or 960 is your best bet, so. Next week we're going to be talking about how to put your leash on your board and how to attach it to your arm.

Thank you guys again for tuning in and we'll check with you next week.
