nofxn Figured out it was from being on heelside too much and plowing down the mountain like a newbie. I got better and more comfortable at toe side and didn't have the problem anymore.

wrathfuldeity Op, if it is in mainly your leading leg, and is on the outside edge mid/center of your shin....(left if regular or right if goofy). And its muscle and not bone...

Anyway early season my "tibialis anterior (muscle)" on the leading leg is often very tense/cramped and in pain after a day of charging...due to steering with the front knee...one of those odd muscles used in riding. An hour or 2 after getting off the hill it relaxes and the pain is often significantly reduced or gone.

Could be shin splints.....

I had them from soccer and it basically just a product of constant hitting the ground running on hard surface (in this case landing and shredding)

Try putting ice on for 30...heat for 30....

Could be your angle, could be the muscle in your leg that causes shin splints. What kinds of other exercise do you do?

lisevolution It's probably your boots not fitting well or being too stiff. The forward lean could be part of it but if I had to bet money on what's causing your pain I would definitely go with it being your boots.

Did you have this issue with your previous boots, or are these your first pair?

Other than that, I would just think your boots might be too tight around your foot and ankle area and not tight enough around your upper shin causing alot of stress on your shin.
That's a good thought about forward lean, I didn't think about that at all.

KnoxBoarderX Is it near your boots? That's the only thing I can really think of. Maybe they are causing some sort of pressure on your shin. Maybe the liners are too tight? I'm not sure. If you get the pain again, try adjusting your boots some and see if that helps.
