Knee Pain
Hi, I just got a new board and bindings and for the first time I had to set it up on my own. My old one was stiffer, smaller and had the stance 15 and 0. The new one is flexier, bigger and I made the setting a bit wider but I set the stance the same, 15 and 0 but I noticed I had less control over with this stance on the new board so I will have to change it. Most likely to 15 and -12 or 12 and -12

I did bigger jumps twice and I heard a crack or felt a crack in the knee of my back foot like when you crack your hands but I felt no pain. When I went home I noticed a pain in the knee so I was wondering for those who have experience.
Should I make the setting smaller and change the stance or will just changing the stance help since after all I got the pain in the foot with 0 stance so it might have happened cause it's natural to stand in the duck stance.

I'm Female
Board 146

I'm sorry for my english, it's my third language.

Thanks ahead.

Two things. Do you bindings have canting? Also, you might want to put your stance width back to where it was. You don't NEED to be wider JUST because it's a bigger board.
