But I will add that for following, a mouth mount is key.

Wetstuff, the good mouth mounts donít restrict breathing. You hold them in your teeth and can breath fine. Think about it, how would those guys surf Pipe without breathing right?

Mouth mount gave me near instant lock jaw. I canít relax and hold it in my mouth.

Admin, thatís the thing about the new Insta360 and GoPro 360 cams. It almost doesnít matter. Iíd guess that the cam is on a pole mounted to the end of the wing. Since they paint out the pole you really canít tell. And since itís 360, you can pick your shot after you shoot 

Itís a new paradigm. Once we got done trying to make weird wrap around videos for the 4 people who have headsets they figured out that pulling a 2D frame out of the 360 is way cooler.

Imagine holding a cam pole and not worrying where it was pointed. Follow your partner and then, in your phone or computer later, choose to show yourself or the person youíre following at any time. Panning around the shot or just setting the frame to follow the other person.

Check out Insta360x on YouTube. I think itís a game changer as you can just shoot and figure it out later.

It took me a while to get my head around this idea. I played with one the other day and I kept trying to hold it so the camera was aimed at me lol. You literally canít not hold it that way as it shoots a complete sphere. Crazy. But once you think of the possibilities, other action cams see silly.

Shoot now, choose your shot later, when youíre not trying to hold a wing and fly a foil, right?

Very cool!  I would love to know the specifics of the pole mount or see a pic of the setup.
