Customer Idea – Kayak Tripod Mount

“Drilling holes into a racing kayak is NOT an option” stated our customer. His goal was to mount a camera on any of the racing kayaks used in the rowing camp. This would enable him to record his team’s performance. In effect, this would give him a powerful post race analysis tool. He also needed a solution that installs and removes within seconds.

Our customer spent time studying our vacuum mounts through our blog. He understood the various mounting options available but wasn’t sure of the ideal solution.

After studying the problem with him we realised the Vacuum Mount centre thread was the best option. To save him time we also supplied a set of short bolts to suit his application. In order to give him peace of mind we also backed up our solution with our “30 Day Money Back Guarantee” on the item cost only. (Please Note: Our “30 Day Money Back Guarantee” does not apply to the cost of postage/shipping)

A week later we received the following feedback.

“Worked very well on rowing camp though the ball joint is a little loose in the rubber feet. I anchored the tripod using a stick on camera tether just to be safe”

The included photos tell the story. Here’s a perfect way to mount a camera tripod on a racing kayak without putting at risk the hull’s integrity. It gives the rowing community a very powerful tool. Best of all it only takes seconds to mount it.

    I am looking for a solution like this one but from the pictures, I have concerns. The height of the tripod looks far too high to make it functional. You would almost have to stand up. Is there someone who has tried this that could provide feedback?

    1. Hi Stuart,
      Thank you for your enquiry.
      The photos were provided by one of our customers.
      The tripod used in the photo was sourced by our customer, In fact he came up with the idea.
      The camera mount on the tripod pivots in all directions allowing you to point the camera in any direction.
      If you are concerned the camera will be sitting up too high you would then have two choices:
      1. You can pivot the camera mount to point in a downward direction; or
      2. Try finding a tripod that has shorter legs.
      Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

      Kindest Regards,
