ankle pain in front foot

Hey all,
I seen to have issues with my front ankle being in pain when i am riding. I assume it has something to do with my stance, but I can't figure out if I need to angle it out more or less.

I am currently at 15 front and neg 6 back. My back leg has no issues what so ever. Is it my stance or something else?

Ehm, I had the same when changing angles. I was at 15/-9, and went to 12/-12. That hurted like hell... now I'm at 18/-12 and that's perfect Those little tweaks can make lots of difference

oh I don't know if it makes a diff, but I'm only 5ft tall...I don't know if that relates at all. I tried just sumping arouns on my own feet to see where my feet "naturally fall" but there seems to be no ryme or reason to it to figure out angles. boo.

My stance is as close as it can get on this board. Maybe I need to widen it? Trial and error I guess.

Yeah. Widen, shorten, change the angles, etc until you find something you like.

Ankle pain? Not angles, most likely your foot is moving around in your boot. Also if you have burton bindings, try moving the strap LOWER (the three screws where the ankle straps attach), it will keep your heel locked in better.

I had the same issue with front ankle pain. I went down a half size in my boot and moved the strap down and poof, the pain literally disappeared.
