Default Pain in my calves.

Hello people,

Recently when I snowboard I get these shooting pain on the side of my calves both in the front and in the back. It is on the outer part, in other words the sides, and I have noticed them kicking in strongly when doing either nose or tail presses.

Why does this pain happen? I'm not sure and I'm hoping for some help.

I'm fairly new at this sport as its been less than a season I have been doing it but I do stretch before every session and even a small stretch after it. I have looked around if others have encounters this and indeed did.Many claim that it may be that it is because they are fairly new and their muscles are getting use to it. I would like to agree but since the hills have opened this year I've been roughly 25 times and this has only begin to happen within the last 5 sessions.

My bindings are -15,15 and the highbacks are parallel to the board. This is what I've been riding since I have basically began.

As for the boots, I have the K2 Pulse and I am debating whether or not this can be an issue.

Thanks for all the replies and help in advance
