After searching the forums I haven't see much about mounting the GoPro on a helmet using the adhesive mounts. I was wondering how many GoPro users here have used the adhesive mount on a helmet when wakeboarding?

I have used the combination of a head strap mount under my Shred Ready helmet. It seems to work. The only downside is wearing all that gear.

The viewing angle seems to work well. Here is a quick video captured using this setup.



Still working on getting some wakeboarding video up. I have used the chest harness but if you cut out toeside, you get a good view of the forearm.

I use the GoPro helmet mount! It's a little to get used to right away, but it's a blast! I also used rubber cement along the outside of it to ensure that that lil' sucker stays put.

I crash like the best of them...so i can vouch for the mounting staying put. The head strap though is not made to be on the outside of the helmet, it will come off. I just attached a floating lanyard to the gopro in case it does come off my board, helmet or vest. The 3m adhesive works great if you clean the surface well.
