In 2005 Flymount started attaching early waterproof digital cameras to their windsurf rigs.
The footage was great, but there were no mounting devices that could hold the cameras in place without either damaging the sails, or falling off. So they started making their own. By 2006 they were making mounts that satayed in place whatever the conditions.
A market was emerging for point-of-view photography, helped by the new video sharing platform YouTube, and the rapidly improving quality of digital image capture.
Flymount wanted to turn their camera mount into a more versatile product that would allow cameras to be attached to any type of action sports equipment, so they set up Flymount as a business and worked with internationally renowned product designer Kevin J McDonald to launch the world’s very first action camera mount – the Flymount Original.
Around the same time, a company called GoPro started making cameras, and the market exploded.
Flymount have remained a family business, with a strong focus on quality and customer care. Their products are sold worldwide, and used by some of the world’s greatest photographers and athletes. They are proud to be part of this market, and to have been there since the beginning.
Flymount products are now available from us in Cardiff or online
