I finished making a tutorial on how I make these bamboo pole camera mounts, yay!  ;D

The pole in this video is specifically designed for foiling:  About as light as I can make one, half the weight of the ones I made for SUS.  Once up on the foil vibration is almost nil, and when foiling I am rarely getting bashed by heavy lips so building light makes sense.



I hope this helps!

Thanks for the feedback DJ, EB, and Rick!  I appreciate this, and seeing your adventures inspires me.
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

nice video. Looks like a well engineered solution with some pretty loft materials. Love your videos though. So smooth. Your Paddlefest video made me want to fly out to SantaCruz this year, but I had some issues that kept me from it. Are you going to make any more SUS videos?

Thanks Robert!  Your paddle cam video capture is inspiring, foiling is challenging as it is and being able to score good video at the same time is impressive.

@supsean  Yes to Paddlefest, I didn't register this year and I had a great time still!  Foiling with Zane and Derek was awesome.  The sup film fest was a nice addition.  And seeing folks I haven't seen in year and meeting new folks was so fun.
I have some general (applies to all surfing) videos in the works.  I have only SUS twice in over a year, and it's been 11 months of only foiling for me.  Foiling is so fast, with such long rides, and radical turns, easy to say yes to this.  Downwind foiling is big time on my radar, as well as the radical new wings that are coming soon...
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.
