My helmet is designed for the goggles to go under or over, so I guess safety isn't an issue.

I wear mine over as I lift them quite a lot, though as they're not great goggles they do lift a little...

I've recently tried mounting my new K2 Company bindings on my new Flow Drifter board, but the screws don't seem long enough. Unless I screw them in really hard, I can only get maybe 1 full turn on...

Only suggestion I can think of is to get a...
