I think he's talking about the bindings creating a pressure point on the boot itself and feeling it through the boot, if the boots are 2004's they are probably really soft by now. 6 years is a long span for snowboard boots.

Try on new boots with bindings and see if the pain goes away. I'm the same height as you and when I wear my old Vans for water-skimming at the end of the year they do the same to my leg. It's right below the calf muscle for me. With my newer boots it doesn't occur.

Boots are very important part of any setup. If your equipment is that old then I would start with new boots first.

yes, agreed that boots are important. but my old ones are still in pretty good shape, and the only times I experience this "presure point pain" is when strapping in to the newer binding models. i never felt this discomfort with my older bindings, but those arent in good shape anymore. so while I don't think there is anything wrong with my current boots, I may need to get new ones anyways that work better with the newer style of bindings.

Make sure that the highback is as close to parallel to the edge of your snowboard as you can get it.
Many have some kind of adjustment where the highback meets the base of the binding.
