I don't think it's fatigue, cause as soon as I'm off the board I have no problems at all, and I don't feel the calf any more. It's not really the calf, but more the side of it, the back is fine and I have no pain there, but the side is absolutely killing me, sometimes it's so bad that I need a rest after about 3 runs.
Is there any specific exercise I can do to try and sort the muscle out?

You're leaning back. Too much weight on your back foot. I used to have that issue too, still do from time to time. Have someone film you riding steeps. I bet you're leaning back and don't even realize it.

Go back to some basics and see if you are twisting your body to face forward. I used to find i'd tweak my front knee/leg by facing forward and tucking my back leg in. Had some weird angles going on that my leg didn't like

This too.

I really suggest having someone film you riding. You can learn a lot from watching yourself ride. You may be doing some things you have no clue that you're actually doing.

thats what i reckon it is, spent 2 runs looking at it and paying attention to it, and I was trying to face forwards

I've just changed my bindings to 12, -12 and put them closer together aswell

I have a similar problem, the out sides of my legs where the boot ends are more bruised than sore (but with no discoloration) especially my back leg. I notice the pain most when trying various butters.

I don't think its that the boot is too stiff because i have K2 Pulses which are soft as anything.
