So I built one of these...

Took me about an hour to run to the builder's supply stuff an 8' stud and an 8' pressure treated 4x4 in the FJ and run home and throw this together. I even took the time to drill pilot holes and screw everything together with 3" grabbers.

After 5-10 minutes of popping on and off ollieing and popping on/180'ing off I think I'm going to die. My calves and feet are burning and I'm sucking wind like an old man...

The legs and my shitty cardio I understand. But the burning feet concern me. It was along the outside edge of my arch. I'm thinking this is caused my a lack of support from the insole? I don't want to be on the mountain for 30 minutes and have my feet hurting so bad I wanna bail. Guess it's time for new insoles? Anything good off the shelf? Am I overreacting? Should I find a place that does custom insoles? I've heard of local shops doing heat forming of insoles. Not sure if either of my 2 locals in Terrace do or not. Should I go see an podiatrist? Not sure if I wanna shell out the dough for custom orthotics and in Canada (especially remote Northern BC) that could take forever. The season could be half over before I ever got in.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I can so relate, I got winded fast when I 1st started on this.

Don't forget as well your popping and slamming all your weight on to that beam. When you are riding the forces you will be applying are different and may not cause this type of pain in a real world situation.

put your forward lean to 0 and tell me if that makes a difference.

good off the shelf insoles are a great idea. Sole, Superfeet, Remind, Shredsoles are all used by people on here. i like Sole.

I'll try taking the forward lean out and pick up some insoles. I've been searching the forum to find the best option.

Which Soles to you have?

Anybody else care to comment on off the shelf insoles?

Thanks!

If you read the post you quoted you would see he has Sole. I have Superfeet and have no complaints, they do what they are supposed to. I have nothing to compare them to.

If you could comprehend the words you are reading, you would know he's asking which model of the Sole brand he was asking about.

Just for popping on and off, practicing balance, etc... Basically for those who want an excuse to strap in with no snow.
