Unhappy My left leg is bigger than my right....lol!

I was in fernie last weekend snowboarding for 2 days. Incredible powder and had a great time boarding the full two days.
But this week I noticed that either A) my left leg grew bigger or B) my right leg shrunk or c) Both A and B

I ride goofy. The size difference is easily noticeable haha...

Has anyone else had this problem? Its never happened to me before. Wondering if it's cause I'm riding wrong?

Going boarding again this weekend to Jaypeak Vermont and I'd like to avoid the situation getting worse lol! I may have to ride switch this weekend :-D

Seriously though, I don't ride switch that often and my legs are for sure the same size. Maybe you are just a freak

Were you weighting your back (left) leg more than usual?

There have only been 2 times that one of my legs was bigger than the other and that was when I had a blood clot in my leg. Same leg, blood clot in 1983 and again in 2006. The leg with the blood clot was bigger than the other and had pain. Hopefully that is not your case.

I learned to snowboard at 50! woo hoo!

My right leg was bigger than my left leg to compensate for my bad knee, did Pt now my left leg is bigger than my right leg to make up for the issues it had. Have a right wrist that's an inch bigger than my left. It happens sometimes it kills you.

My right leg is bigger and stronger then my left to make up for a bad ankle. If you can ride switch good do it. If someone notices that your legs are different sizes besides u thats weird and you should kick them in the head with the bigger one.
