Mounting a GoPro surf camera to a kite will result in extraordinary bird's eye view footage. How can you mount your photo and video device to your kite?

Filming from a kiteboarding kite requires a proper camera adaptation to the lines or to the kite itself.

In the early days of point-of-view riding, sailors were forced to produce homemade mounts for their surf cameras.

Today, manufacturers are already developing specific kite mounts for contemporary kites.

Attaching a GoPro to a kite or the kite lines is not the same as mounting it on a surfboard.

You'll have to ensure everything is tight and flexible so the camera doesn't fall from the sky.

GoPro Vented Helmet Strap Mount

The first option is the GoPro Vented Helmet Strap Mount. Its rubber material prevents it from sliding around the kite bladder.

If you add another velcro strap a few centimeters away and pass the GoPro cord loop, you'll add a double safety layer for keeping gear attached.

Then, you'll have to decide your favorite angle using the classic GoPro attachment point.

Adjust the GoPro helmet strap so that it gets slightly off-centered. Ready to ride.

PKS Kiteboarding Strut Mount

The PKS GoPro Kiteboarding Strut Mount will work with virtually any kite. The brand says the camera won't move when strapped.

The alternative option is to attach your GoPro to the kite lines.
 
In this case, the camera sits between the lines, making sure you capture stable and clear photos and video.

CamRig Line Mount

The CamRig Line Mount offers a lightweight, tough, reinforced nylon construction and independently tensioned and flexible line arms so that the surf camera can adapt to your riding decisions.

For older GoPro versions, the brand has an alternative, too.
