Exclamation i need some help

i have gone snowboarding 3 times and every time i end up frustrated and in pain. the pain that I'm talking about isn't muscle pain but more like a ligament or tendon pain. what happens is when i strap my back foot into the board while waiting for the lift about 5 min pass and i get a horrible pain to the point where i cant walk. I'm not sure if it is my stance or my binding placement or both. it might be my weight tho. I'm 330lbs and 6'2". I am also 22 yrs old. i have really nice burton strap in bindings and a pair of thirtytwo boots.anyone know of some adjustments that can be made in order to get up the mountain so i can start falling down like everyone else? haha. p.s. i am goig to the gym so the weight thing is something I'm working on so if anyone has other suggestions besides my weight i would appreciate reading them.

This only happens when you strap nto a board?
You could check your binding angles to make sure there not pointing your back foot in an uncomfortable position. + check your highback angle.
But if your having problems you should see a specialist.

I am a writer and have done some pieces on extreme sport. Here's my page if you'd like to check it out. I'd appreciate any comments as writing is my passion.

Make sure your boot lining isnt too tight, also, if you feel your straps are too tight as well loosen them a little...although, it could be your foot, maybe pinching a nerve or something.

Dark Series FTW!

What G2309 said. Have tried playing around with your binding angles? How about stance width? And make sure you have no forward lean. I'd guess it's probably some combination of your stance width and binding angles. Without strapping into your board, stand with your legs a little wider than shoulder width apart and bend your knees a little, as if you were snowboarding. How different is your stance from the one on your board?

right now my binding angles are both at 15 degrees and they are both in the middle position. my regular everyday stance has my feet at more of a 30 or even 35 degree spot so im gonna try fixing that and ill let you all know if that helps. ill also adjust the back hight so it is more comfortable.
