Out of curiosity , did anyone recommend getting custom superfeet? I know you mentioned you bought some but thought you might have gotten them off the shelf

I remember Whistler having several places where you could get customs done

I've been snowboqrding for 10 years and even worked a season in America with no problems at all I was wearing DC boots so I'm thinking its the boots stiffness that's effecting my performance on the snowboard if it is I'm going to buy a softer boot up on the mountain becouse this pain sucks especially when I'm on holidays from australia :/

The root cause is not the stiffness of the boot (I've snowboarded in modified ski boots), it is most likely a poorly fitting or broken-down boot. The solution is new, properly fitting boots. I had the same problem years ago... custom footbeds help, but they usually don't solve the footpain problem by themselves.
