Your kit comes with a mount that is designed to hold the device securely in place as you boost to the moon and learn new tricks! Make sure you read up on properly Attaching the WOO Mount to ensure your device stays on the board and records the right data.
If you have an older blue mount, contact support immediately! Blue mounts can damage the device and make it more susceptible to being lost out on the water.
The WOO is designed to start calculating jumps based on your board's vibration. When the board leaves the water, the WOO will start measuring your acceleration and rotation. As a result, the sensor needs accurate vibrational feedback which can only come from being mounted flat on the center of the board. If you put your WOO on the tail of the board, if you mount it on top of something else on your board, or if you wear it on your body it will not produce accurate data and therefore can't be trusted as a tool for competition with other riders around the world!
Our mounts use 3M VHB tape which is an industrial grade adhesive that is commonly used as a substitute for screws, rivets, welds, and other similar fasteners. As a result it is extremely difficult to remove, but not impossible!
Removing your WOO mount:
- Take your WOO out of the mount
- Apply heat to the top of the mount with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive (be careful not to apply too much heat directly to the board since it could damage the topsheet)
- Stick a knife in the layer of adhesive between the mount and the board and gradually work it free
- This will leave a thin layer of adhesive that can easily be peeled off by hand
Be careful not to damage your board when using the knife! Keep it flush against the surface of the board and try to avoid using something with a sharp tip
