Talking Snowboard Setup Talk

Hey guys!
My name's Halcyon, and I'm a brand-new spankin' member of this forum. I was just looking for some good conversation and opinions about people's snowboard setups. I'm fairly new to snowboarding (Started two years ago), and I recently bought a pretty nice setup. I just want to know your guys' opinions of it, and I'd love to hear what setup you guys have as well. So recently, I bought myself a Ride Wildlife '13 model with Union Contact Bindings and Ride Anthem Boa Coiler boots . What setup do you have? What do you think of my setup? Let me know in the comment section below :P Also, what type of goggles do you guys think I should get? Nothing above $130. I was thinking of an Oakley A-Frame or a Dragon Rogue. I saw a pair of Rogue's for $70 on Backcountry.com.

best goggles are on sale and fit with your helmet/face.

no big deal. I got like 6 pairs but feel I am still about 20 short.

That is a pretty decent setup i think, the wild life is a really high quality all around deck. Should last a long time as long as you don't ride on rocks. I usually ride a lib tech banana magic with burton cartel bindings and ride rfl boots; other boards are capita charlie slasher and this year a salomon villain.

I have a pair of rogues, they don't fit my face, they are just too narrow, i dont think i have a real wide face. my oakley splice's fit better than anything i have ever had. Like snowklinger said its really based on your head. i got my oakleys on ebay for like 60 bucks.

Get a helmet and wear it. smith, giro, bern, red, k2, all make pretty cool helmets. save your brain

This is my 3rd year, the first on my own setup. I got a Proto and some El Hefe's, I haven't heard of anyone else using my bindings on a Proto, it's a weird setup but I think it'll work good for what I do. I'm using my boots from last year, 32 TM 2's, they're super comfortable, no problem wearing them all day.

Get goggles that fit, same thing for a helmet. I would have rather smashed my face into the ground repeatedly than wear my old helmet another day. I have a Pro-Tec now and it's great.

IMO, best goggles on the market are the Smith I/O series (they fit me the best, are the most comfortable I've worn, and the lens switching is quick and painless.). Best news of all - they are on sale for the cheapest price I have ever seen, even used. Level Nine Sports - I/O goggles. The I/Os are for smaller faces, I/O are for normal/average, and I/OX are for a bigger fit.

Nice! The Wild Life should last a while, it's hybrid by the looks of it, and the experience I've had with hybrid bend boards is that they are fun as can be. I would actually love to know what you think of the Contacts, I'm looking at getting a pair. The BOA stuff is slick as snot on a doorknob, so I think you got a pretty good deal here. My personal setup is a Burton Custom smalls 145W, I'm looking for new bindings as we speak, and Burton Hail boots. As for goggles, I'm not the guy to ask about that, though helmets are a different story. I'll always be a helmet advocate, I had a nasty run in with a tree my first year out, and thanks to my helmet, I'm okay. I'd recommend the Giro helmets personally.
