I haven't been snowboarding for very long and living in Belgium I can only go indoor untill I get the money to go on a decent trip. This year I've bought my own material and started really practicing. ( I'm all freestyle/park )
But the last time I went boarding I got enormous pain in my leading foot wich is my right foot. The pain was situated on the right side of my heel. I have added a picture to show where exactly I felt the pain, the foot on the picture is not mine, it's just a random picture from the internet, if a picture of my foot would be asked to see the shape or whatever I'll happily upload one!
So ... after about 2 hours I started feeling the pain and after a while I had to quit because it got too bad. Now the weird thing is : As soon as I got my feet out of my boots the pain somehow seemed to explode and I actually had to lay down because the pain was killing me. It took about a day or 2 after that before I could walk normal again.
I've been snowboarding about 10 to 15 times with my new material and I didn't experience this pain before except for one time where I would feel a slight form of pain there, but it was nothing comparable to what I felt last time! I can normally keep boarding up to 5 hours without any kind of pain.
The material I have :
Burton The Shaun boots.
Ride Beta bindings.
My angles are 15 -15 ( I've been using this since I started boarding because people told me it would be a good stance for freestyle riding and it seems to work out fine ..
My stance width is about 24inch ( 61cm ).
I am 176cm tall ( 5ft 9inch if I'm correct ?! ) and my weight is about 75kg ( 165pounds ).
I wear snowboarding/skiing socks and I think my boots are the correct size ( my toes touch the end but when I bend my knees they don't anymore .. ).
I use the j-bars provided with my boots because otherwise I have to overtighten my boots to eliminate heellift 100% !
I have provided as much info as possible so hopefully someone could help me out. Going to a shop to get things sorted out is a bit difficult because there aren't any around really. If any more info is needed I'll happily provide it as I really don't want to experience this kind of pain again.
One last thing : I could do without 16 year olds cracking jokes or giving me the wrong info.
