Default Pain under knee- shin splints?

Might see a doctor if pain persists, but I believe someone here can help me out!

I ride regular. I started getting pain just below my left knee, slightly toward the outside. This started happening at the end of the first day I started doing, slow speed, flat ground, 180s. Every time I practice the slow speed 180s I can feel the pain when using my front leg to initiate the spin. I've never had this pain ever! I can do runs, boxes, jumps, but the pain only comes when I do these spins.

Could I maybe be turning too hard with my front leg in the spin? Am I supposed to put much effort with my back leg in the spin? I'm 5"9 and I have a 21.5" stance width on both my boards. Could this waist width be too wide? This is my first season and I've gone 16 times with no problems, but the last 3-4 times I've had the pain from starting doing flat 180s.

Thanks for reading, much appreciated.

I'm basing this off the direction the top of the binding is pointing to, correct? If so the front binding is at about 15 degrees. It is corked so the front of my left foot faces more toward the left (duck stance I presume?)
