Default Shin Pain = bad boots

I went snowboarding first time this season past Saturday. i bought Burton cartel binding and ride +15/-15 wide stance. few of the runs i had to stop since both of my shin were really stiff with pain. it went away within a min after stopping but happened few time.

also my right heel was in pain and i could feel it lift a little once here and there.

question: is this caused by new binding or boots? i had the same boot(k2) last year and had no problem(different binding - same stance)

Have you always rode with that stance angle and width? No pain before? If so then yeah, you're weak!!! Or you could have a technique issue...

I go to gym regularly and workout legs once a week. one thing i would point out, i felt like i had to work extra harder to keep an edge. and yes i always rode that angle and stance(i did try narrow stance for few runs and i couldn't tell if i was on edge lol but no pain)

and before someone points out, the high back was at 0. no forward lean.

I think i know what went wrong.

just realize when i changed my binding, i didn't center them. in other words, they were more toward the toe then heel.

will go home and check them but looking at the pic, that it what it looks like.
