The world's Original action camera mount! Light, strong and built to withstand the harshest outdoor environments on Earth.
Every detail has been scrutinised over the years, and improved where necessary. To ensure the longest possible lifespan for your Flymount Original, we use a combination of premium grade Glass Reinforced Nylon-66, and marine grade metals. The glass reinforced Nylon-66 ensures that the body of these mounts is strong and stiff, and has incredible resistance to extremes of temperature and high ultra violet. This material is used by the automotive industry as a replacement for metal when weight needs to be kept to a minimum. The metal parts are a combination of 316 marine grade stainless steel, and CZ112 naval grade brass. This enables the Flymount Original to be used extensively in saltwater without corroding or seizing. These are the original - and best - mounts that you can buy for your action camera. Beware of imitations!

Can I mount my camera to a windsurf boom or SUP paddle?
YES! The Flymount Original is designed to hold your camera securely to any tubular object, without slipping, falling off, or damaging equipment.
Will the Flymount Original work on my Standard Diameter Mast?
YES! The range of the Flymount Original covers with all diamters of mast, both RDM and SDM.
You can also attach to any section of the mast, from the base to the tip.
I’m worried about point loading on my windsurf mast. Will this be a problem?
NO! The Flymount Original is designed to prevent point loading.
The pressure is evenly spread around the mast in a similar way to a boom connection.
Urethane cushioning inside the jaws prevents any hard surface connections.
The narrow width of the product prevents any flex restriction of the mast.
There are a lot of Flymount Originals in the world now – we’ve never heard of one damaging a mast!
Can I position a GoPro to film down the centre of my mast, capturing both tacks?
YES! This simply requires the 3-Way Pivot Arm that comes with your GoPro camera.
Use the long section with your Flymount GoPro Adapter:
Can I set up my Flymount to rotate with the luff tube?
YES! You can lock your Flymount in place, or allow it to rotate with the luff tube simply by adjusting the amount of pressure applied to the jaws.
Due to the shape of the jaws, and the rigid construction of the mount, it is impossible for it to come off the mast until the jaws are fully opened.
Can I mount to my bike handle bars and frame?
YES! The adjustable range of the Flymount Original allows for mounting on most parts of most bikes.
The urethane jaw liners prevent the mount from slipping or damaging paintwork.
Do you have any recommendations for mounting positions on a bike?
We like frame mounted footage, as we feel the results are more fluid compared to mounting on the handlebars.
We all like different things though, and this is part of the fun.
Having someone in the frame always makes for good footage. If you can position the camera to capture yourself and surroundings,
or another person, you’ll be on to a winner!
I have an early Flymount Original – will it fit the GoPro Adapter?
YES! All Flymount Originals are compatible with our GoPro Adapters.
I have an old GoPro – will it fit the GoPro Adapter?
YES! All models of GoPro are compatible with our GoPro Adapters.
I have a camera that’s similar to a GoPro – will it fit the GoPro Adapter?
Almost certainly. If your camera looks like it would fit, the chances are it will.
