snowfiend I have a similar problem, the out sides of my legs where the boot ends are more bruised than sore (but with no discoloration) especially my back leg. I notice the pain most when trying various butters.

I don't think its that the boot is too stiff because i have K2 Pulses which are soft as anything.

thats what i reckon it is, spent 2 runs looking at it and paying attention to it, and I was trying to face forwards

I've just changed my bindings to 12, -12 and put them closer together aswell

This too.

I really suggest having someone film you riding. You can learn a lot from watching yourself ride. You may be doing some things you have no clue that you're actually doing.

linvillegorge You're leaning back. Too much weight on your back foot. I used to have that issue too, still do from time to time. Have someone film you riding steeps. I bet you're leaning back and don't even realize it.

KIRKRIDER no idea...experiment with different angles/stance to see if it improves...

skippy79 I don't think it's fatigue, cause as soon as I'm off the board I have no problems at all, and I don't feel the calf any more. It's not really the calf, but more the side of it, the back is fine and I have no pain there, but the side is absolutely killing me, sometimes it's so bad that I need a rest after about 3 runs.
Is there any specific exercise I can do to try and sort the muscle out?

grafta Riding any hill that requires a lot of traversing on one edge always fucks with me too

lisevolution It could be the boots but I agree with Kirkrider's initial comment that it just sounds like muscle fatigue to me. You rarely work all the control muscles used in snowboarding outside of doing other boardsports or targeted exercises so it's probably just a question of those muscles getting tired...

KIRKRIDER yes...that's it. I don't know...try different boots? Different angles on the bindings?
