Mounting a GoPro SurfHero camera on a bodyboard is easy. The famous fisheye surf gadget can be installed in all bodyboards, with no exceptions. The best place to mount the GoPro camera in a bodyboard is the nose.
You should center it as close to the edge as possible, with the mounting pad that is sold by GoPro. The further back you go with the mounting pad, the more of your board is going to appear in the photo or video.
Before applying the mounting pad to the bodyboard, it's important that you customize it. That is why you should make two leash plug holes with a portable drill and screw. It's very easy and quick.
Then, cut the remaining upper plastic part that close to the nose. You don't need a large ammount of mounting pad to safely attach the GoPro HD camera. Watch a video on how to mount a GoPro camera on a bodyboard.
With a pen, mark where you want the leash plugs to go in. Pick your favourite screwdriver or drill and make the two holes. Pop the plugs, thread it through and you're done.
Although your board is going to have two leach plug holes, it is definitely worth it because you're about to get the most incredibles rides of your lifetime on tape.
