The list goes on...

Capture the Ocean – Get the ultimate ocean photography accessories for GoPro in one package. The GP4 Trigger turns your GoPro into a one-handed, point-and-shoot camera, and paired with the game-changing KSD6 you can accurately capture the action above AND below the surface, which is a dream come true for surf photographers, divers or anyone that loves to use their GoPro in the water.
What We Love – We love the epic over-under photos possible with this combo. We also love the attention to detail in the KSD6 Dome Port, which was optically matched for your GoPro HERO camera and even increases its field of view—meaning you capture more of the tropical reef with every shot. Lastly, we love that this combo comes complete with a free bottle of GoSpot Lens Water Repellent to keep the water droplets from accumulating on the dome or your GoPro lens.

What We Love – The adjustability of the Flex Grip Video Arm is impressive and accommodates almost every camera angle and light orientation imaginable. We also love the various power modes of Aqualite Pro 100° Video Light (including SOS mode) and the included waterproof case that can safely store this kit and your GoPro.

Click It, Spin It, Shoot It – The perfect gift for the action junky that’s perpetually stepping up their game (and the GoPro videos that go with it). With a click of its lightning-fast trigger, your GoPro (or smartphone) rotates 180-degrees instantly, switching between selfie and forward modes fast enough catch the face you made right before that massive wipeout.
What We Love – Other than that sweet, sweet swivel, we love that you can just as easily mount a GoPro, smartphone or any other camera to its standard ¼-20 tripod mount. We also love that you can operate this rotating selfie stick underwater and catch all your fishy friends down at the reef.
Give the Spivo Stick | $49.99
Stick It & Rip It – Designed as a surfboard mount that doesn’t ruin your board, this powerful suction cup mount lets you mount your GoPro to any flat (or nearly flat) surface. Bumpers, windows, boats, robots—you name it and this sturdy triple suction cup will stick to it. Aside from the obvious surf flicks, this versatile mount works great for action movie sequences, travel vlogs, promotional videos and countless other applications.
What We Love – Even with its extreme hold on wet or dry surfaces, this mount’s clever cup design still makes it easy to remove and adjust while you’re waiting for the next luscious set of waves to roll in.
