pain in left outer calf

went out riding the other day on my new board. I set up the bindings like I normally do 15 -8 regular. After a few runs the outside of my left calf starts to hurt. basically its the side of my leg that points towards the front of my board. its right above where my boot stops on the top. Happened on my last set up too. Any ideas on adjustment? I am a bigger guy at 240 lbs. I need to measure my stance width but I deff don't ride a narrow stance

boards a 159. gives you an idea on my stance width

It's not your setup, it's you. Quit riding in the back seat. You're leaning back.

As for board/binding setup a couple of things to try:

Increase your forward lean a notch or two, or back it off a notch or two if you have it cranked down. Have you rotated your highbacks to be more parallely with your heel edge? This can sometimes make a difference.
thanks for the time. Right now I don't have any forward lean set. But I did cant the binding high backs so there more parallel with the board. so when you say countered stance Im actually trying to point my body forward as appose to just turning my neck? Thanks again.

Sometimes I get that feeling up the lower side of my leg if my boots aren't done up properly. Sometimes it just takes taking your foot out and starting again, making sure the upper part of the boot is not excessively tight.
Did you try that?

I went out riding last night and I kept in mind to try and keep 50 50 pressure on my feet. no only did I feel like I made better turns I also didnt get that pain. It was my first time on this specific board witch is a rocker camber rocker, but I got used to it right away and then was ripping turns in no time. I was still a little plowy on my heel side turns but Im happy with how it went. my big toe on my left foot did go numb but I think I may have had my binding to tight.
