This product floats because there is an air bubble in the middle. We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure the core is air-tight and rock-solid.
However, we don’t recommend keeping this product submerged for extended periods of time nor is this product designed to be used extremely deep under the water.
If for any reason this product ever gets punctured, cracked or is otherwise taking on water - DO NOT rely on it to float.
It’s always a good idea to tether your gear!
That’s why we’ve designed a tether loop on the mount.
You should use it!
We recommend building trust with this product. Both with the suction cups and with the floatation
For example: If you plan on mounting this to the front of your surfboard, we DO NOT recommend the maiden voyage be paddling out through heavy surf with this mounted in front of your face. We don't want you to get hurt :)
We recommend testing floatation in a clear, shallow area with no strong current. Additionally, it's a good idea to test the floatation in any new body of water. The ocean is typically more buoyant than fresh-water, meaning - even if your setup floats in the ocean, it might sink in the lake! Always test!
