Hello Guys,

I just recently started snowboarding and only went up 3 times on a cheap gear.
I'm 18 year old male, 6' 2" with a size 14 foot, and weigh around 185-190 lbs. I bought a 164cm Burton board with K2 bindings. I set the angles at 15/-15.

The problem I seem to have is a lot of pressure on my back foot. When I'm going down I put most of my weight on my back foot and it really starts to sore in my quad. And it caused me to stop and take breaks to rest my foot.

So the question is where lies the problem? Is the problem in my set up or the way I ride?

P.S. Also I forgot to mention that my snowboard is not wide even though it should be for my foot size.
