Contour Introduces Hands Free Video to Watersports with New Surf-Wake

posted Aug 24, 2010, 6:19 AM by Unknown user
Contour, the market leader for HD wearable camcorders, today announces its official entry into the watersports market with a new Surf-Wake mount. In an ongoing quest to meet the video demands of watersports enthusiasts around the world, Contour (formerly known as VholdR) is bringing hands-free video and online storytelling to the millions of surf, paddle and wakeboard enthusiasts out there with its waterproof case and new Surf-Wake mount. 

“Recording hands-free video in the water has been one of the most requested features from our customers, says Marc Barros, Contour’s CEO. “The introduction of the Surf-Wake mount brings our easy to use video cameras to an entirely new group of users. Now you truly can use a Contour camera for any activity, anywhere in the world.”

Specifically tailored to meet the needs of demanding watersports, Contour’s new mount features a low-profile design and a full rotating arm so the camera can move 360 degrees. Its flat base uses a waterproof adhesive solution that curates to the board, insuring against the loss of your mount or your camera. In addition to being easy to use the Contour Surf-Wake mount includes a fully buoyant body. Should your Contour take a harder-than-normal tumble, you can be sure to find it floating right alongside you. To support all the non-surf sports, the mount also includes a ¼”-20 thread, enabling the mount to screw into any existing fin or boot holes. 

"I love how simple the camera and mount are to use", states professional surfer Kahea Hart. "I look forward to using Contour this winter on the NorthShore of Oahu in some really big surf. I love this camera!"
