Question Mounting a GoPro

So where is the best place to mount a GoPro on a Hobie Outback?

I would want to be able to do a quick remove so i can put the pole in the water and get some video.

I would also be interested in any equipment recommendations as well and Do/Don'ts

Thanks Yakers....

(Note, we're on a tandem with a milk crate setup) Step 1: figure out what view you want, front, side, rear, etc. Step 2: there's a $15 extension pole at walmart that goes up to 5ft, that's going to be your best friend. What we did was attach one mount to the end of the pole (minor modification) and then the foam handle sits perfectly snug into one of our PVC rod holders. Easy removal for underwater, extension for various views, no need for crazy $50 mounting gear. We did youtube on BBarton for the basics and modified it to work for us. I've seen the outback, and depending on your personal setup, this should be simple and appropriate for you as well. We liked the wide range rear view so you can catch all the action.
