well lost touch with the forum completely.. life went on.. and totally forgot about this thread.. ended up not getting out that much last season.. anyway.. something dawned on me yesterday.. when I set my board down next to my girls... and that was this.. she is under 5 foot.. I am over 6 foot.. the fact that our bindings were spaced the same width.. probably a problem.. lol also my angles were the same front and back.. and probably not really right.. so I did a little reading online.. and the back foot is at a very light negative angle now.. and the front one is at a more reasonable positive angle.. at work so I don't remember exactly what they are at (I think it is like +12 in the front and -3 in the back).. but more importantly I spaced the bindings out more.. and getting down low feels far more natural.. the way they were spaced before was just about shoulder width or maybe even less than that.. obviously not right.. I am trying to go ride tomorrow.. and we will see what difference that makes.. but what I do know is when I lock into my bindings now they do FEEL better.. hoping for the best..

Could have also been closing up that rear binding angle. I've been experiencing a lot of rear leg burn and I realized yesterday it's been since I went from -3 to -15 on my back binding.

I've also been riding a new board... But I never ever had leg burn with my rear binding closed in.

Glad your feeling much better!!
