Hi, I'm pretty much a beginner, I did my first week snowboarding 2 years ago in the Czech republic, for a week, and a year ago in Austria, also for a week.
In those two times, I noticed a problem with my side slipping.
After doing side slipping for a few minutes(when encountering a too steep of a hill for me) the mussels surrounding my ankle, and above that, really hurts. It hurts to an extend that I can't keep on doing side slipping. So, the way I see it, the problem should be one of the following:
- Something's wrong with my technique
My mussels around the ankle and above a re really week
Side slipping in steep hills/icy hills was not meant to be done for more than a few minutes/dozens of meters...
What do you think?
