How to attach your GoPro on Slyde Handboards High Performance Boards

To attach any water camera to The Bula, The Phish, The Wedge handboards is a really simple process.

We know 1st hand how the ocean can swallow stuff really quickly, that’s why on all of our hard-top high performance handboards have a built-in extra safe GoPro mount

When your Slyde Handboardsarrives you will notice  a build GoPro insert (essentially a hole in the nose of your board) with a screw inside at a angle. Have no fear the the screw is designed to be at an angle, that’s exactly the way it’s supposed to be.

Items needed to attach Gopro:

  • A GoPro Camera
  • The GoPro Surfboard Mount Kit- includes 2 Surfboard Mounts, 2 Adhesive Anchors, 2 Camera Tethers,  FCS Male Plug Mount, Locking Plug
  • An Allan Wrench

Step By Step Attaching GoPro to Your Slyde Handboard:

  • Take an allan key/ wrench to loosen the angled screw a bit on the nose of your Slyde Handboard.
  • Place the “Surfboard” mount in the “hole” of your Slyde Hardboard, if it’s a little snug push it down until it’s firmly in place.
  • Once the GoPro mount is fitted on board & use allan wrench to twist and tighten it in place.
  • Line up holes on GoPro Camera & Mount.
  • Take your GoPro Camera, place it on top of tight mount with camera facing inward towards Slyde Rider (selfie style that’s where we’ve seen the best videos come from).
  • Tighten GoPro Thumb Bolt/Screw on mount

Additional Tips:

  • Remember a water camera will but a little bit of weight on the front of your handboard, so you’ll have to compensate by putting extra press on palm.
  • Use the adhesive anchors included in GoPro Surfboard mount labeled 3m. These have sticky tape on back, so in case the GoPro comes unattached & ripped off for some bizarre reason, you won’t loose your camera completely.  (Steve’s been in some heavy surf & doesn’t come out) Simply stick it next to GoPro mount and attach the little rope/leash to anywhere on the camera.
  • Now that you’re GoPro is securely mounted,  check out this insightful How To Film with your GoPro while hand boarding tutorial HERE
