Might as well. You look stupid enough with a fucking box on top of your helmet, why not attach it with something from Home Depot.

I wold never drill into a helmet but rigging a platform on the Go Pro Mount would work - I thin these are the coolest angles for video - Like this one that really shows all the rider does on a lap

I was seriously considering buying this. Not a swivel, but gives a cool shot.

There are a couple on youtube and their site has a demo with a wake board, I just ordered it today.

It's called The Arm and is made by a company call GoPole
