Discomfort inside knee front foot

I've been riding maybe 10-12 days this year. Every time after I am done riding I have this discomfort on the inner side knee of my front foot. My bindings are set to +15/-15 currently and I feel I press harder on the outer side of my front boot.
Is it because my body is counter rotating or I should have a bit more forward stance?

funny, my knee hurts when I DONT ride or hike or bike. Its like the older I get, the more in motion I have to stay or my body wants to freeze up.

what is your stance width at? have you tried an insole or seen a boot fitter?

mine is at 22. I think the boot issue is my pelvis is not completely parallel with the board so instead of weight the front foot I am pushing it forward. I can feel if I am getting confident enough throughout the day I don't get the boot issue anymore. also if I keep my knees at a more normal bent position also reduces the foot issue.

I'm having a hard time picturing where exactly it's hurting you though. Is it hurting behind your knee on the back side of your leg in the middle or on the front of your leg where your kneecap is? How aggressive is your forward lean on your bindings?

its the inner side of the knee cap. like where the inner quad muscle is attached to. I dont have any forward lean currently but I think it has something to do with rolling my front knee out when on heel side.

I don't have a problem with my inner knee on the front leg, but I do occasionally have problems with the outer knee on my front leg (iliotibial band).

I also ride 15/-15.

I notice, at 21" and 15/-15 (I'm 5'6" but with short inseam) I also put a lot of pressure on my outer front foot. To the point it starts to ache, get fatigued, burn.

I've only been out once, but I lowered my angles to 12/12 and had a good day and notice I don't press on that front outside portion as much.

Try to bring it in for a day. Or bring it out. Try different stance widths.

A good rule of thumb is to set your binding angles the same as the angles of your feet when you squat
Say you naturally squat at angles of like 10 and 10
and you set it at 15 15, there's going to be a lot of internal rotation of your knees. Compound that with impact, vibration and fatigue and you have a perfect storm for injury.

How does it feel walking up/down stairs? I've experienced something similar lately...
