Not true. I said they were ugly not stupid. But also questioned if they are that helpful (enough to actually bother sticking one on your board).

My top-sheet offers zero grip but I'm pretty sure that as well as putting my foot against the binding (as mentioned by others) I also hang the toe or heel of my boot (depending on which way I'm urning) very slightly over the edge of the board and that offers a surprising amount of grip. Certainly enough to get off the lift, steer around people and stop ok.

Agree GoPros look dorky on a helmet too btw. I still use one from time to time though... though my beef with them is more that it's actually pretty difficult to get useable footage from them than anything
