the ONLY helmet on earth that fit right ? HELL YEAH!!! Just slap a coat of spray paint or some stickers on that bitch and call it a day

Luckily though, the bern baker helmet in size xl fits my mellon perfect. My old one was pretty banged up and the liner was pretty worn as well, so I picked up the carbon fiber version this summer off geartrade for 75$ shipped =D



and yes that gopro mount IS mounted on the back so I can ride on the side of friends/family, and catch their steez lol (my dad doesn't like people riding behind him it scares him, so I ride to the front side of him)

And a lot of people might not wear something they aren't stoked on... OP just go try on as many helmets at as many shops as you can until you find something that fits and looks OK to you.

Seriously go to a shop and try lots on, they have a mirror so you can see if you like the look but tbh number 1 thing needs to be the fit.

Its like anything, pick one...style or function and you can find it very easy

want both? well you're gonna have to put some time in trying as many as you can on.

only you know what feels comfy on your noggin, and style wise... a helmet is a helmet at the end of the day....

My moms custom sewed audio into the liner, looks better than any of the factory setups I've seen.

I like the K2 rival helmet, similar style, built better and most importantly...fits my head perfectly, the padding in there is way comfier than other helmets i tried

End of the day style of helmet really should be the last thing on your list, Fit & comfort should be paramount if you want to wear them all day every day while boarding.

Then Wicking, then adjustability, durability, you'll probably even want to pick colour before the style/shape

Good luck
