Heel problem during snowboarding

I'm a newbie, and I need some advice, I'm not sure if this is normal or just a bad habit of snowboarding.

I ride Regular footing. When I'm riding, every time I make a right swerve, I notice my fore feet builds up stress and pain over time, then I began to notice, every time I make a right swerve, it was because my are heels up, and its putting weight into my fore feet. So can someone help me understand, if this is normal, bad habit, or my boots are not keep my heels down. Has anyone experience this problem before?

Totally normal, we get a lot of whiners. That's all we hear around here.

"Why do my feet hurt whilst I'm sucking ass", just check you'll see

Snowboard boots are designed to hurt your feet, it weeds out all the sissy bitches.

Fuck off idiot! You shouldn't speak about things you don't know.

What's going on is your boot is actually too big whether it's over all length causing your heels to lift when you're on your toes or your ankles are narrower than the boot profile.

There are fixes for it if you're good at DIYing or if you have a ski shop with a boot fitter near by swing in and tell him your issue and that you either need j bars, c bars, a buttefly wrap, or some sort of aftermarket foam to keep your feet locked in.

Although from the sounds of it your boots are just plain too big.

No, actually I did know. It really wasn't that hard to figure out.

I thought I could trick em into reading about snowboard boots, something he could/should have done @ some point when deciding to become a snowboarder.

I also thought it sounded so fuckin' retarded that no one would believe it.
& if he did believe it?

Ya... Do we really want em?

Help people that need help, not people that are too fuckin' lazy to read.

Ding ding. Boots too big, heel lift happening on toe-side turns, you're balancing on just the toes and the ball of your feet.

4 years in, many many boots and I still have this problem. My feet are too low volume, but then wide. So I'm fucked. I stuff a shit load of foam in there and still have the problem. Anyone ever try to stuff a liner inside a liner?

Intuition and Remind are making after market liners. I suggest you look into some.

I have somewhat normal feet. I used to use Ride Jacksons, and they were pretty good about holding me in. But late last season I got some 32 Focus boots, and holy shit what a difference. You may not realize how much your feet move until you try some boots where they don't move. Go to a snowboard shop with good selection, try out all kinds of boots, find the ones that are comfortable and have great hold, then BUY THEM THERE! Support your local shop or it'll disappear and you won't have that option any more.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

You may need custom footbeds to correct the problem of the excessive heel lift.

Yeah I've been meaning to check out Remind ones since you reviewed/interviewed them. I should ask them to make a super high volume liner
