hmm, so i think i figured it out. I had the boots really tight and i think that was causing the extra pull on my calf, i rode with them loose(it felt so free haha). I also stretched it out before i went out.
So il just continue to play around and see what was up.

|quicklx||It sounds like you are using your calve (essentially doing a calve raise) to control the board rather than leaning your shin into the boot.|

If that means anything to you.
So by conditioning you mean just getting used to it?
I just messed around with my stance so its fairly wide (this is the first time ive really only started to play around with it now).

what bindings/boots/board are you using?
Conditioning (add a little less effort in your carves, i.e., relax)
Equipment (includes boot/binding settings and getting the gear that fits you)

|wrathfuldeity||I'd imagine a large part is just conditioning...I've been riding for 10 years, past 6 years, 1-2 times per week...eventually it gets figured out. If you have big concerns go consult with physical therapist or perhaps a md sports guy.|

This would be my second season, so not a "newbie" but still rather new. Yes that's the only option i have to ride since well... my hill is small as fuck. I have some volcom snowboarding socks (padded in a few places and they are mainly wool and tight as fack). Last year my arms were sore because i was new to the tow rope, now they have adjusted but my calfs never hurt when i started to use the tow rope though.
Usually stretching them out a shit load helps keep them somewhat loose, but after a few hours of riding it gets not to nice.

|wrathfuldeity||idk, do you usually ride the toe rope? are you newbie? if so you got to build up them calves by riding. My calves burn after a couple of runs...lactic acid build up before the flush...but keep riding and it washes out. Stay hydrated and perhaps use compression socks.|

Increasing calf problem
This year i have been noticing a problem that's getting worse and worse as the season progresses. I go out and do a few runs and my left calf (im regular). I've begin to think that it's mainly when i am using the tow rope, my calf begins to burn and get really tight after a few runs. I've tried to play around with the insoles with my boot which had no effect. The owner of the shop i was talking to said he thought something was weird with my highbacks, so i changed them around a bit, no effect. I am going to try going to a slightly shorter stance just to see if that helps it.
Do any of you have thoughts about this?
