A helmet strap would work great.

If you're looking to mount it to the board, I am sure the suction cup will hold as I have had mine on my car on body panels/windows at 150+ mph.

If your talking about mounting on the board it's self I wouldn't trust a suction cup with the cold temps and banging around, just use one of your flat sticky mounts and then never think about it again.

I used the curved mount on my helmet and bit it a few times without issue , just make sure you follow mounting instructions, heat board\mount\helmet to at least room temp(70F) press hard\long and let it sit flat for 24 hours to set\cure whatever.

Good luck, also probably a good idea to check instructions from GoPro's site would hate to see you loose your cam.

Sure do, just got my Hero2 and did my first video montage on an early season powder day just over a week ago, follow the link at the bottom of my posts to our blog and scroll down a little bit and you'll see it. called brightonfinal.mp4 or something like that, not great but it was my first attempt so I hope to get better.

I hate to break it to all of you but none of the said options will work. The suction cup will only last a few minutes and will either slide around or just pop right off. The flat stickies believe it or not can be even worse. Unless you add some epoxy under the stick mount and make it more permanent I would not recommend it at all. I tried using a sticky mount once and I didn't even have the board strapped on yet and it had fallen off. It was a on a board rack and someones board knocked into it and it just literally popped off. With this all said, I can attest to the fact the the surf board adhesive mount works very well. In addition it has a built in spot to leash the camera to. Even after all this though you will realize that the footage is pretty crappy. It is usable as very short filler or is great if you use a shot when the board is in the air but it will chatter like crazy while riding and the shaky video is hard to watch.
