Has anyone put a gopro on a pole/post stuck in the sand, a bit out from the shore line. A stationary position that a kiter could transition, jump etc in front of. Thinking it would have to be brightly colored so could be easily seen. Maybe covered in foam (pool noodle??) Or something ? Dont want to impale anyone. Any constructive thoughts?

I cut a length of PVC tubing (approx 1m x 50mm) and cut an angle at the bottom end and a split down at the top. This allowed a floaty handle to fit into the top snuggly.

I tied a coloured foam float on it. I found it moves a little if the water is deeper then 2 foot when you get the chop but it.

I have only used it 3 times at the moment but worked well but I do get concerned about other kiters hitting it when it's busy.
