Exclamation new board

hi all,

i'm new to boarding.....just started in january and i love it. i rented snowboard with bindings 4 times...first time 160...next 3 times 157.... it seems on my 2nd time i was able to turn left and right with no problems...by the 4th visit i could really fly down the mountain (snow summit in california).
with the season ending, the specials started and i bought a burton custom x dcp board with some burton p1 bindings and some burton ion boots. i put the bindings in at 15 for left foot and 3 degrees on right foot. i set them to burtons default widths on the board (marked with triangle).
well, i took the board out yesterday and fell on my ***. i could make very nice and sharp turns to the right...the board felt great. but turning left was another story....i just could not kick my right foot out to carve left.... the only way was to tighten my bindings EXTREMELY tight and even then, my calves were burning everytime i turned left.

what the heck man?? is it just me? do i need to break the board in? the boots? any suggestions?

thanks guys
steven

no... the board, bindings and boots that i would rent at snow summit are burton...but they are not the same models. the angle of the bindings were different though...i remember my right foot kind of facing out...not in and not at 0. but according to the binding instructions that came with my new gear...the suggest angle on my right foot (i'm regular) is supposed to be between 0 and 3 degrees.
