Default Extremely sore feet and lower legs

Hy thar

I have the following problem - my legs burn as hell when riding on longer pists. The part of legs that burn in everything inside my boots. It becomes so intense, when riding for a few kilometres, that a can hardly ride at all and i just slide or do turns like a newbie. One solution is, that i untstrap me from the bindings and wait for a few minutes, but that just sucks.

I have '03 Nitro Shogun 169cm, Drake Limited bindings (same as Drake Matrix, only with adjustable stiffness) and Northwave Freedom boots. The board and the bindigs are hard, the boots are 5/10 (hope i'll get a stiffer model, this one's lacing sistem failed after two days, will change them next week)

I always strap the bindings as hard as i can (maybe the reason, since the blood flow in the legs becomes worse, ...)
If i try to set the angle a bit more forward (to 45/40), will this possibly save the problem?

Or else - what to do?

Your boots/bindings are way too tight

Ease off on the laces. You CAN overtighten.

Also, if your boots are soft, the binding straps can crush the boot.
