      I used a very similar Lo-pro mount for multi-day trips.

      One thing I've done: I use an extendable, telescoping boat hook like this that allows me to raise or place the camera further back from the boat. I have some cool footage from the Middle Fork Salmon I haven't yet uploaded. I was looking to simulate a following drone.
      To use this if the camera is far away, you need the GoPro remote -- which is awesome anyhow. (The new version is fantastic.)



      I think it's kind of a cool look, though I generally prefer the camera closer.

      When I'm running a paddle boat, or a single day oar-paddle trip, I use a paddle strapped into the boat for the mount.
      I've flipped once with this setup back when I was thankfully using GoPro 8's... because you could replace the lens cover really cheaply. This is what it looks like when a GoPro strikes an underwater rock.

      Check out the rest of the channel which includes a bunch of two-camera footage and a few drone shots. You can see the paddle mount in many of these shots... and my custom PVC front mount in a few, as well.

      Btw, having lost a camera once on the Upper Klamath, I now use a leash like this with every setup.

      Looking forward to seeing some footage of that MF trip! Hope to boat with you again this year.

      Damn that was fun to watch! One question though….why did those people jump out of the boat? Very odd behavior on a river…
