Goggle measurements

Hi, I'm a noob at boarding (obviously), and am wanting to get my own goggles (currently borrowing). I'm tiny (only 150cm tall ), so most goggles are waayyyy too huge for me. I've been recommended the Scott Jr Tracer, or the Oakley XS O Frame... does anyone here happen to have these, and can tell me the measurements? I've scoured the internet, and all I can find is that they're "scaled-down size for kids".

If you have any other recommendations for smaller goggles, that would be great too! Thanks!

Ah darn... is there anything in between actual kid goggles and full-size ones?

I'd guess I'm the size of a 10-12 year old...clothes-wise anyway. I'm assuming my head/face size is in proportion to the rest of me..

That's hard to say. The one and only thing you can do is go into a shop and try all the goggles on to see which fits you best. Any recommendations someone makes here may be great for them but terrible for you and vice versa.

you'll be fine with most full-size goggles

Size is more of a preference. I know someone that is 5'2" and wears the Electric EG2, which are HUGE. Big goggles look better in my opinion, especially with a helmet. Also, it depends on your face size.
