Took my ski out yesterday to test out my new Gopro side mount and floating tripod. Got a couple of good shots of jumping off waves. Still learning to get it as vertical as possible. To be honest some of the waves were huge, and I'm afraid of heights lol. So I'm gradually getting higher and higher. I can definitely see the potential with the spark.

Here's the video!

Great video, even better for a first try!
How often do you plan on creating these?

Thank you!


Not quite sure. Depends on the viewership and if I have the time. Would you like to see more? Do you have any feedback for me? My brother says the video itself might be too long. But I don't like cutting the music short ;p And since it was just me filming myself, I was limited to the amount of footage. I used a floating tripod which I had no control over, the shots I got of myself wave jumping were basically just luck. It missed quite a few good ones.

Thanks man!

Here's what I made. Found it on youtube, DIY floating tripod. It's constructed with PVC pipe and pool noodle. Using a GoPro handle bar mount, but you can use anything you want really.

I had to do lots of jumps to get only a few usable clips. There's no real way to get the tripod to follow you. I found myself flipping it back over when a wave or I flipped it accidentally. And even trying to point it in the right direction. After a while I just let it do its thing while re-positioning it.

I would just strap it to the back of the ski when traveling long distances with bungee cord. Would even take jumps with it on the back ;D

...or just use a different color pool noodle on the front side???
Good idea. I do have a floaty back door, but from far away sometimes you just cant tell which direction its pointing still.

I was thinking what if I had 2 or 4 cameras mounted so I get a 360 degree view. >:]
