Helmet Strap for Camera Case Answered

How could I create a helmet strap for a camera case so I can attach it to my head while bodyboarding?

I
 guess you may need it saltwater resistant so use stainless or plastic hardware. Were you going to wear a helmet or just try to strap it to your head? Industrial velcro is good sewn onto straps.  Does your helmet have vent holes or a chin strap to pass through the mount?  Not sure how well adhesives, even epoxy would fare under wet conditions and the joint being stressed by wind or hitting the water.

Start with a head torch?

Not a bad idea, but how would I attach the camera housing to it?

Maybe...
  • Remove the torch.
  • Epoxy a 1/4 inch bolt to the plate remaining, head-first.
  • Screw camera onto bolt.
Or maybe hack something together with Sugru?
