Windsurfing with a GoPro

Windsurfing is awesome, right? So if you’re like me, you want to share it with everyone.


But most people don’t want to try it, or can’t do it for some other reason. The next best way to share windsurfing is to record it with a GoPro and show everyone the footage.

GoPro cameras are definitely expensive (the latest version is $400-$500) but it’s well worth it if you are in the ocean a lot. They are almost indestructable, so it will last for years.

There’s a few different mounts you can use, but personally I like the mouth mount. It’s comfortable and easy to use, and you don’t have to rig it to your equipment. It comes with a floaty and leash in case it falls out of your mouth, but that’s never happened to me.

So make sure you figure out all of the GoPro settings before you go windsurfing with it. This way you won’t waste a session because your camera really wasn’t turned on.

Once you get that sick POV footage, your friend will love it!

Top 3 Windsurfing Videos

Here are a few wind surfing videos that I love. The first two are from Miami, because of course I’m biased to that 😉

Virginia Key Windsurfing

I love this video because it really shows the windsurfer’s perspective. I’m not sure if they’re using a mouth mount or a helmet mount, but I like it!

This video will make you feel like you’re out there in the ocean, even though you’re probably sitting on your couch haha.

Yandri’s Windsurfing Adventure

Love the music in this one.

Definitely gets you pumped to hit the water!

Watch Yandri sail around Virginia Key and The Causeway:

Windsurfing Maui (Jaws)

Ok, the first two videos were just a tiny little warmup compared to this one!

This has got to be the most epic windsurfing vid ever!! I mean come on. Jaws. Craziness!

Watch around the 5 minute mark when the jetski gets crushed haha
