GoPro Athlete Tips and Tricks: Kayaking with Dane Jackson (Ep 20)


How’s it going everyone? Dane Jackson here,
here in beautiful Vail, Colorado for the GoPro games. For today’s Tips and Tricks, I’m going
to show you guys some of the cool ways you can mount your GoPro on your kayak when you’re
getting out on the water. What I’ve got here: I’ve got a Handlebar Mount. This is a great angle for when you’re just kind of out there, you’re getting some cool kind of crazy kayak
paddle shots. It’s just fun cutaway good footage. I’ve also got a GoPro here on the end of my
paddle. This is one of my favorite places to put a GoPro because you get awesome photos,
but it’s also really good for video. Crazy angle from the end of your blade that you
don’t really see very often so it’s a really cool shot to see. I’ve also got the go-to,
always have a helmet mount on. I use that just about every time I get on the water.
And I’ve also got myself a GoPro on the front of my kayak, I use that a lot because it’s
a really cool, kind of intimate face shot. You get some really cool surfing, running
the rapid, just a really cool angle to have. Alright, well I’ve got four cameras mounted,
about to hit the water. Just a few more things to remember when you get out on the water.
One- always use anti-fog inserts and a floaty. As well if you want a little bit more security
for your camera, get the GoPro Camera Tether. You can tether it to your paddle, or if it’s
on your helmet, you can attach it to your strap. Just makes you feel a little bit safer
about having your camera out in the water. If you’re shooting on your head, I recommend
shooting in 1440 by 48 frames per second. It’s a great setting for when you’re shooting
on your head. Anything else, 1080 by 60 works great as well and you’re going to get all
those awesome moments. Alright guys, hopefully you guys try some
of these cool mounts, I’m about to get out on the water. Don’t forget it’s just all about
what you want to try. Find some new angles, it’s all about getting all creative and trying
crazy stuff. Time to go out here and have a good time at the GoPro Mountain Games.
