Any useful tips on using the hand held mount without loosing it :?

Are they easy to carry out in the water

Not sure what mount you have but I tie a long shoelace/string to mine and make a loop. Put it around my neck and under the chest flap of my suit (stops it coming over my head). Then to store while surfing I tuck the hand grip into the chest flap. It's not ideal for POV as I need to grab it out after popping up and invariably the camera registers the shot upside down and I take the first few sections to hold the camera right. My method is this... See wave I like, turn GoPro to record while holding camera right way up. Wait for record to start. Shove camera into chest panel. Paddle for wave. Stand up. Grab go pro. Film.

Happy New decade :)

Sorry it’s the handler - was thinking is taking a strap off an old leash and strapping it to the arm, or shove it into the chest zip area :?

Like the idea around the neck but my wetsuits are super tight zipless ones

We’ll see anyway

And thanks for the response

Worked out really well with the camera tucked into the chest area with the handler strap attached to the suit tightening cord :-D

Took some beatings and didn’t lose the camera
