Got two punctures due to crap getting in via the big hole for the air valve. Tires themselves were never punctured. Sugru that shit for added security.

Great idea with the sugru, never thought about that. I have at least 2 thorns or something else sticking through the tire which punctured the tubes but it’s not visible from outside.
A couple of days ago I had the idea to mount the camera to the bull bar very close to the ground and machined some ABS sheets.
I did a test ride but it rattled and I’m not sure yet why but after the ride I realized the threaded insert got out the plastic and I can’t push it back.
I also shoot at bmx course but the video is shaky. I hit some objects and damaged the case for the camera so I have to buy a new case. And the camera should be mounted higher
Thanks for posting that video - a very good resource, and after watching it, I now know that my foot straps are too loose. The problem I have is that the brackets are already on the far inside positions. The foot straps were pre-installed on the board when I purchased it and I don’t really want to drill more holes. Maybe they were fitted to the deck to allow for people wearing boots?
I totally forgot about that, barefoot straps should have the brackets more inside. Maybe you can machine some aluminium plates with 4 holes to move the brackets more inside without drilling new holes. On the other side the brackets could hurt if you touch them. You could stick some high dense foam on them.
Would it not be safer to mount the camera on top? I’d be worried it’d get ripped off.
I was going to say that, if you managed to break a deck, destroy a truck and probably more things that I can’t remember, that camera has no idea what it will have to face
Right?!!! My thought exactly,
It faced it already and didn’t like it
I’ll upload a short part of the video so you see and hear the abuse.
Yes next time for sure it was a bad idea, I quote myself:
The plastic in the middle of where the lens is has a damage, you can see that in the video of skate park. In general the case is scratched everywhere because I like low angles. I’m sure I’ll find cheap replacements on Aliexpress.
As I wrote this i realized this part in front of the lens is mounted with screws and can be replaced, great! That should be cheaper than replacing the whole case.
