Replying to Help with shin bang
I was advancing to the phat jumps at my local park once the season was coming to an end. I got really nasty shin bang in the last month because of having small calves so my boots wont get tight enough everywhere, and from landing backseat when trying new things a lot. I got booster straps but it still wasn't enough.
I also am using some all mountain skis that have really stiff, short tails and I was wondering if I should look at swapping to a little softer, rocker tailed skis along with new boots, or just get new boots.
My question is basically can having skis with softer, rockered tails prevent shin bang when I'm hitting the park and messing up big jumps in the backseat all the time as I progress? Or does the ski not matter?
I only weight 125ibs and I'm 5'9". I have 90 flex dalbello panterra boots right now and fisher watea 88 from 2012.
