The first Dummy Mount prototypes were constructed about two years ago. One crisp early fall morning I decided to take my GoPro and new mouth mount out to get some footage. My home break has a reputation and a colorful cast of individuals that surf there on a regular basis. I got some stares because cameras are not popular on good days, but nobody was really grumpy about it. However the heckling started and one of the boys was calling my mouth mount a pacifier/binky.
I have strong connections to New Zealand and am very familiar with the culture down under. In that part of the world a pacifier is called a "dummy" and that is how Dummy Mount got its name.
