Here's my deal:
I just recently got a pole mount for my GoPro in order to shoot not only myself, but my peers. I realized that it fits too loosely at the bottom (thinnest) part of the pole and therefore, hindering my goal of filming my friends with my ski pole. any suggestions on how to make this work? My two solutions so far have been taping around the bottom to add thickness or just using a different object other than a ski pole.
anyone's 2 cents on the subject would be much appreciated.

This is what I did. Take the plastic square it came mounted on in the box. Cut of the sides off of it, now you have a receiver end of a clip mount with about 2 inches of plastic on each end. Glue/tape it to the end of your pole and VOILA! Now you can move your GoPro from your helmet to your pole in seconds!
This was the exact situation i was in, i had a pole mount but it was too big for my pole. What i ended up doing was mounting it on the grip of the pole. that way i can hold the end of my pole near the basket and point it at what im filming, and because it's removable and somewhat small, i can take it off throw it in my pocket and continue skiing when not filming.
whats that big bump on the landing?

Wow, there are some incredibly excessive solutions here....just most it up the pole to the thicker section. It makes it easier to control anyway since you are shrinking the distance between your hand and the heavy camera. I do it all the time, it's very easy.
