TDD536pain 24/7 is never normal unless you have a chronic condition. Somebody posted recently about having shin splints, you might have the same but i'm no doctor. don't skip leg day
MittsRuggedhaha i meant 24/7 because i ski like 4 times and never really give myself time to fully recover. Like i said its not unbearable pain4 times a week**
ZennanThere are only a few explanations for this. You think your boots fit perfect and feel very comfortable but in reality they are a bit big which is no problem it happens to everyone (but kinda is a problem cuz of shinbangs and you gotta buy new boots) Can you lift your heel at all when their buckled, loose feeling in your foot anywhere, does your boot hurt your foot anywhere else, do you loose toenails, are your feet cold when it's not like super cold outside, lets say higher than like 20 degrees, or anything else? Other explanations are you don't buckle your boots tight enough and your feet slide around, you buckle your boots so tight that they cut off blood circulation and wreck your shins. You have hairy legs and the hair on your shins rubs up against the boot and ends up rubbing off because of all the friction with the leg hair and boot leaving a bruise. You land in the back seat when learning new tricks like you said, but you just have got to learn to backslam on the ground instead of resisting and landing backseat, for example when you see those bosses on TV or in general sending like a 30ft cliff and they land with their backs literally smashing the floor, it is to prevent this as well as other stuff.
tomatonaterWhat boots do you have? I have dalbello bosses and I always get shinbang no matter how hard I tighten my buckles. I've ruled out that the flex block in the back cuff of the boot is creating my pain. I had full tilts but they broke, but unfortunately I am looking back into them because I never had pain due to the boots not having anything holding back the flex of the boot, only relying on the tongue. You might have the same problem?that could possibly be part of the issue
MittsRuggedYes my toe nails are black af right now and my feet were cold all day today. Like they felt snug and everything but i guess they are still not right for me. It now sounds pretty obvious lol. Almost everything you listed off is happening to me. Thanks for the reply man im gonna go see a boot fitter in a couple days. And i dig the backslam idea i will definitely start doing that.
DirtYStylEGet some booster straps. My friend had shinbang problems and he said they helped a lot
