So I've been snowboarding for the last 5 years on and off and I've definitely improved. However the ridiculous pain in my front foot is killing the experience. It only takes a couple runs for it to be ridiculous and unbearable to continue. My setup and description are as follows:
I ride Goofy, with back binding very far forward, and front binding relatively forward. Front binding is angled +12 and rear is +5 (towards front). I do have space between the top of my feet and the boot which could be the issue. I do not do park, I'm a mountain carver. Bindings setup for Toe strap and not top mount. Both are setup snugly when I board.
I was also wondering if there's any tips for this setup for better control and handling?
I would put your bindings back to a neutral stance. IE both in the middle. Not forward or backward. Then try -5 back foot and plus 12 front foot. Pretty basic stance but it sounds like at the moment when you ride all your weight will be on your front foot.
If nothing changes rent a pair of boots so you can try something different. I have 32's and find them to be a great fit.
Did you try on ALOT of boots before settling on the 32's? If not, do that to find best fitting pair. If so, try grabbing some aftermarket insoles. Shredsoles, Sole, Remind, Superfeet... look them all up.
also, i could be wrong but your boots are a size 11 and your bindings are a medium..maybe the stance setup coupled with the fact that your boots probably barely fit in your bindings might make for a pretty uncomfy situation..youre already putting alot of pressure and weight on that front foot, and it sounds likely that itd be easy to overtighten with your setup
