Hi....dont want to hi-jack John J's post but thought I could get a little help with my daughter's issue also....
I know zillch about snowbaording....or board equipment.....or terminology..
My daughter's foot (while inside her boot) is turning (rolling up) towards the outside of her boot when carving causing her pain in the side of her foot.
Her stance as far as I can tell is not "too far" from 90* angle to the running length of her board....perhaps canted outward just a touch or very little.
Q's: Is her foot supposed to be rolling up like that inside her boot? (Imagine the ball of the foot rising up and onto the outside edge)
Q's: Do snowboard boots have a "last" similar to ski boots? (She has a narrow foot and heel)
Q's: Will (my term) "opening up her stance minimize this?
She is progressing very quickly but the only "expert" help with equip in our area comes from employee's at larger "chain" stores. Kind of like getting your taxes done by the "chain tax prep store". Sometimes you find someone who is really sharp....it's really a roll of the dice.
But I just cant imagine that kind of "foot roll" inside the boot to be normal.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.....
