My front foot is usually +15 maybe +21(not too sure since they are usually rental boards and never really know what an ideal set up is like) My back foot is usually straight perpendicular to the board. Would angling my back foot towards the tail more help?
Angle your back leg towards the tail, just a cunt hair.
I don't think that's causing your pain though, maybe contributing a tiny bit?

He's talkin' about your highback, the angle can be changed(little kids are magnets to them).
Everything you described in your first post, are symptoms of what it's like when your highbacks forward lean is cranked @ too much of an angle.

Read this, it was all talked about in detail yesterday.
