Switching Boards Question

So I recently traded in my old Board, a Ride Kink from '08. I purchased the '10 Easy Living by Burton. I've only been out on the new board twice, and it certainly seems pretty nice, but as expected its much different from my old board. The problem is, I never really checked my stance distance on the old board, and wasnt even 100 percent sure of my angles, however they were either -12+12 or -14+14. That said, the two times I've been on the new board, I am finding that my quads are absolutely burning and exhausted after only a few runs, and in general I am just not riding up to my usual caliber. Some of this was expected as my new board is quite different, but I was just wondering what kind of adjustments I should make when going from that stiffer rail board to this new setup. I am thinking that the quad issue is likely caused by my stance being too wide....any thoughts?

Damn guys, I know I'm new and probably didn't phrase my question right so here is anothe try. My question is whether switching to softer bindings can cause some pretty intense lower leg muscle soreness, and what can I do about it.

Softer bindings and changing your binding angles aren;t really drastic enough to cause you to have intense lower leg soreness. It could be a number of things like your boots or your technique

check your width, a wider stance makes you bend your legs more and work harder to turn since you have less leverage.
