|maf05r6||I fractured my ankle several years ago and never had problems snowboarding but stiff boots and binding are a great idea.|

But too much support will make your ankle weaker on the long run so only wear it if your injury is recent and if u feel you need the extra support. Make sure you do some ankle strengthening workouts like getting up on your toes on a step or running in sand or grass barefooted. also make sure you stretch a lot, that's very important for your ligaments because after injury they tend to harden and snap easier. use a rubber band or an elastic cord to stretch your ankle. but like i said, the boots should keep your ankle from rolling if it's still weak with no ankle brace.

|aceitup1011||your ankles ever give you a problem when riding..i havent been boarding since....but i figure the boots and bindings will keep it pretty much firm and in place|

|romaniaK||I don't think our ankle problems/stance would affect your stance .... you just need to see what feels comfy. I broke my ankles and my ligaments are all kinds of fucked up too ... but I never had a problem riding. just mess around with your stance and see what feels comfy|
