Is GoPro Man's Best Friend? Accessories for Every Kind of Travel Adventure

GoPro recently released its newest camera, the Hero4. It’s the most advanced GoPro yet and is able to capture stunningly clear photos and video. The beauty of GoPro is that it can go anywhere with you — and we mean anywhere. Whether you’re skiing down a mountain, snowboarding for the first time, surfing a big wave, or riding your bike down a wooded path, GoPro can help you capture those memorable moments.  

It’s the perfect travel companion. So before you go on your next adventure, here is the perfect GoPro mount for every activity. 

3-Way

This three-in-one mount can be used as a camera grip, an extension arm, or a tripod. The folding arm makes it possible to capture selfies without the mount appearing in the shot. The handle doubles as a grip and stores a lightweight minitripod.

Cost: $69.99

Chesty

The Chesty is adjustable to fit a wide range of adult sizes and makes it easy to capture immersive video and photo footage from, well, your chest. Perfect for skiing, mountain biking, motocross, paddle sports, or any activity where you want to get a lower-than-the-helmet view of the action. See more of your arms, knees, poles, and skis while skiing, or your arms and handlebars while biking or riding your motorcycle. Recommended as a more immersive way to film than on the helmet.

Cost: $39.99

Jaws: Flex Clamp

Clamp your GoPro to objects ranging in size from 0.25 to 2 inches (0.6 to 5 centimeters) in diameter.

Perfect for any activity where you want the GoPro to be stationary. 

Cost: $49.99 

Helmet Front Mount

Mount your GoPro to the front of your helmet in a headlamp-like position. Capture forward-facing footage, or adjust the extendable arm so that the camera is facing back at you for self-portrait videos and photos. The mount can be removed by heating the adhesive bond with a hair dryer and then peeling off the mount. Perfect for snowboarding, skiing, and skateboarding. 

Cost: $14.99

The Handler

Get a solid grip on your GoPro and keep it afloat with the Handler. Whether capturing selfies, POV footage, or follow-cam footage, this buoyant handgrip delivers increased stability and control — making it easy to aim the camera and frame your shots with confidence. Perfect for surfing, kayaking, wakeboarding, and more, it floats any GoPro camera,  so you can shoot in and around the water without a worry. Includes an adjustable wrist strap and the Tool — a GoPro thumbscrew wrench that doubles as a bottle opener. 

Cost: $29.99

Surfboard Mount

Want to catch amazing footage of yourself catching waves? The GoPro Surfboard Mount is the perfect accessory and easy to install. It comes with two adhesive tethers that you attach to the board. It’s also important to put on the orange floaty backdoor, so that if the GoPro is dislodged, you won’t lose your camera. This mount is also great for paddleboarding and kayaking.

Cost: $19.99
