LONDON, (Aug. 28, 2012)â€”Drift Innovation, the action sports technology company and manufacturer of the Drift HD and HD720 wearable Point of View (POV) cameras, is preparing to enter the surf market with the introduction of a Surf Mount and FCS Surf Mount. These mounts mark the first surfing-specific accessories offered by Drift.
â€œWe are really excited to now offer a new range of accessories that will enable Drift cameras to capture yet another one of our favorite action sports â€“ surfing,â€ said Simon Wootton, Global Brand Manager at Drift Innovation. â€œWe can’t wait to see the innovative angles and high quality surfing footage that our sponsored athletes and Drift customers will be able to capture, thanks to the functionality of our new mounts.â€
Surf Mount – The Surf Mount is equipped with a tough 3M VHB adhesive suitable for surfboards, kiteboards, and windsurf boards so that surfers, from novice to pro, can capture the thrill of their first wave or that perfect barrel from their most recent session. Incorporating the new ratchet washer system and made from a super durable waterproof polymer, the Surf Mount will securely lock your camera into position. And with the camera being able to pivot more than 100Â° and rotate 360Â°, the Surf Mount ensures that you get that perfect shot. The Surf Mount also includes a nylon cord, attaching the camera to the mount, making it impossible to lose your camera, even in the heaviest conditions. MSRP $19.99
FCS Surf Mountâ€¨ – The FCS Mount allows surfers to secure a Drift camera to the deck of their board, with no need for adhesive, so that they never miss filming a single wave. The FCS Surf Mount fits into a standard FCS plug and by using the FCS system, the mount can be easily swapped between boards. Incorporating the new ratchet washer system and made from a super durable waterproof polymer, the Drift Surf Mount will securely lock your camera into position. And with the camera being able to pivot more than 100Â° and rotate 360Â°, the FCS Surf Mount ensures you get that perfect shot. The FCS surf mount also includes a nylon cord, attaching the camera to the mount, so your camera won’t end up on the bottom of the ocean. MSRP $9.99
The Surf Mount and FCS Surf Mount are available now.
