Preach the word, brother! While I won't say anything bad about other brands, because I haven't used many, I will say that Rome is awesome.

About goggles, Spy Optics are my favorite. They are the ones I have on in the pic. I've tried some like Smith and Bolle, but they weren't quite right.

I'm not a first timer, but I can say that my goggles were $120 new and I don't think I'll ever buy a different company regardless of the price.

I rock $20 Bolle goggles, woo!

I actually have a pair of Smith High Voltage for night riding and low light riding, but the Bolle's seem to work well in any other lighting condition.

Congrats on the gear. Wear your boots around the house for a couple days to break them in. Remember, your boot will "grow" about 1 or 2 sizes as the foam liner compresses and forms to your foot. If the boot is kinda loose as it is, go get a smaller size.

For the stance on your board- go with what is comfortable first. If your feet are angled out like \ / the board will be more responsive to you than if they were | |.

Don't be afraid to strap in in your house and learn some edge control on your carpet. Stretch your lower back and hamstrings with your feet strapped into the board and learn to distribute your weight on the board and you should be ready for this coming season.
