Capturing yourself in those amazing moments is always easier with a trusty GoPro pole by your side.
There are a lot of great GoPro Poles out there, so we created this GoPro Pole Buyer's Guide to help you navigate our always expanding selection of the world's best extension poles. We broke it down into three categories based on simplicity and features: Standard and Sturdy, Feature Packed, and Floating Poles, as well as a few complimentary products we think you'll love. Dive in and let us help you find the perfect GoPro pole for your adventure, whether you're catching swells in Maui, shredding pow in Squaw Valley, or exploring the urban jungle...
Category 1: Standard and Sturdy
These GoPro poles do exactly what they are supposed to do: free you up to take awesome footage with your GoPro. Let's take a look!
1) GoScope Boost GoPro Extension Pole
Rugged and Comfy: The Telescoping GoScope Boost GoPro Extension Pole is a solid, easy to use, sleek piece of hardware that lets you mount up to two GoPro HERO cameras while withstanding heavy snow, deep waters and everything in between. Extending up to 26", the aluminum body is crash- and adventure-proof, and the trusty wrist strap and grippy handle texture have us sold.
What We Love: This thing feels like a beast, is lightweight and has some cool features like a patented quick release mount and the capability to mount two cameras. Catching simultaneous forward-facing and self-facing views really lets you add new dynamics to your edits.

2) UKPro HD Telescoping GoPro Pole
Catch Every Angle: The UKPro HD series is as burly as it is simple...in the best way possible. The GoPro attachment point swivels 360 degrees, letting you dial in the absolute perfect shot. Extending this pole to its full 38 inches (or 54 inches depending on model) is quick and easy, so you can adjust your perspective in the middle of your pow run and even while still recording.
What We Love: It might look like you are wielding a sword, but the rad results speak for themselves. We dig the brightly colored handle on this GoPro pole because it looks cool and provides a comfortable, confident grip in or out of water. The UKPro HD series is easy to use, salt-water ready and will stand up to years of abuse while capturing your wildest moments.

The FreeRide Phone Mount works with any sized phone even with the case on, and reviewers have hailed it as the best on the market.
What We Love: It's our baby, but from an objective standpoint the fact that the FreeRide connects to both GoPro mounts and standard tripods is a game-changing feature.
2) KNEKT Wrist Tether KWT
Get a Grip: Just imagine it, you are shredding some glassy swells when a mermaid catches your eye. The moment of distraction leads you to forget about the massive marble slab coming your way. You get thrashed, down for 45 seconds... the mermaid is unimpressed. The worst part? You lost your GoPro Pole! This common scenario will never happen again with the KNEKT Wrist Tether. This double padded and super comfortable tether can attach to most GoPro Poles and really any other accessory or device you use to capture the moment.
