--weezl-- ok, I'll give that a try next time I'm out.

the only other factor that I have noticed, between the two boards, is that on my K2 board, the bindings are much more centered on the board, where as on my santa cruz, they are towards the back, which will help the board float better, but the snow I was on, wasn't powder, so that shouldn't have been an issue...

blackbeard made sure to dip my front shoulder a bit so that my shoulders were parallel with the angle of the slope. additionally, i made an effort to shift all my weight to my front foot.

--weezl-- Maybe I'll just try leaning forward more then...

Any tips how you made the switch?

blackbeard I had the same type of pain my first day back on the slopes this year. Realized when I finished that I wasn't leaning forward enough and driving the board with my front foot. Second day out I corrected it, and voila, pain was gone.

Good luck! Hope it works out for you.

lol, I would much rather improve my riding than do exercise! LMAO

i'll try turning the binding rearward more, I had the bindings setup like this for more of a downhill, unidirectional and speed setup, but adjusting it is easy. my short board is 8/9 and I didn't have any issues (or way less) the week before, on it

yep. of course your rear leg is going to be burning if you have all your weight on it. put more weight on your front foot. I'd suggest a lesson to right any other bad habbits you may have also

--weezl-- thanks for the replies, it's muscle burning pain, I think it's definately too much weight on the back leg, and being crouched for such a period of time, absorbing the impact of the terrible snow we've got here right now.

the boots i've got are brand new, I hope they aren't the issue, as I don't think the place I bought them from has any more in my size, so replacing them isn't an option, and I don't have the money to buy a new set right now. They are quite comfortable, I did have my foot go numb, a little, but after loosening off the ankle strap on the binding, problem solved.

I have the highbacks straight up, no angle on them at all, at least I don't think so...

linvillegorge, what do you mean by "stop living in the backseat"? I assume just stop leaning backwards?

last, it's not my feet at all, they are fine, I only wear one pair of socks (an extremely over priced pair of over the calf marino wool socks) unless it's a combination effect you guys are thinking, where it doesn't seem like my feet hurt, but they kinda do and I don't realize it, and that's what's causing my thigh to burn.

to best describe the pain, it's literally, like the muscle it's self is being set on fire, from the inside, or like I did a wall sit for like 20 minutes past where my muscles wanted to give out, and I am still holding that position.

I should also mention, that the calf on that leg, was sore and tight for a solid week after I went last time, it's good now, but it almost felt like I pulled something in my leg...
