Default Most shallow goggles there is?

I am not a fan of wearing goggles but I will be forced to because of the location I will be at.

The goggles I used last season cut off so much perriferal, and I couldn't see my board or anything unless looking straight down...

Im looking to find some goggles that will basically be closest to my eyes/ not huge... I want as much natural vision as possible.

I'm new to this so sorry for my ignorance.

Von Zipper Fishbowls. I've used them before and you see so little frame. I am literally straining my eyeballs downwards before I see the frame.

Any true fishbowl fit type goggle should fit your description though.

Yeap! Fishbowl describes the oversized style of goggle that have awesome fields of view.

There was this one goggle, I think it was by quiksilver that literally wrapped around your face. Pretty cool, maybe you could look for that one.

--- is there any other style that would have a larger field of vision besides
For the fishbowl and this quicksilver one?

I have a baby sized head lol. I am only going to use goggles when I'm in VT so I don't want to break the bank over them. Still need to finish buying all my exterior gear still too.

I liked my Smith Phenoms I had for a while.

They had good peripherals without looking ridiculous like a lot of the other top of the line goggles.
