Suction Cup Usage

Does anybody know what sort of resistance other than air the suction cup can take? I understand that it is not for high contact sports.
What I’m really after is to know if it will stick to and stay attached on my SEADOO if a sudden wall of water hits it.
It’s a sit-down SEADOO meaning that it’s quite rare for the water to come over the bow where it would hit the suction cup and camera, but I’m just wondering if I set it up near the handlebars, and I go out and hit water if I’m gonna end up losing it, or will it hold for a few different walls of water?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Suction Cup Usage

Hi @boldspirit7844

 

The suction cup mount has been used to attach GoPro cameras with its industrial strength suction cup to cars, boats, motorcycles and more. This suction cup has been proven at speeds of 150+ mph.

 

Although these speeds have been tested successfully, we can’t guarantee that the camera will stay attached.

Water may cause for the suction cup to get loose.

 

Thank

Re: Suction Cup Usage

If you are going to use the suction cup on your SEADOO, be sure to tether the camera/suction cup. While it may work fine, the is absolutely no guarantee that it wont get knocked off.
