  #2  snowboarding problems  Posted 20/11/2018 @ 23:09
Hey everyone!
was wondering...
what are the problems that bug you the most while snowboarding?
1. snow build-up on base-plate
2. iced up ratchets
3. having to sit in the ice or bend over to strap in
4. snapping ladders
5. how expensive equipment is
or are there any others?

hope you are all doing good!

The Heel lift issue that I could never manage to solve, tried everything, various differing makes of boot, tightening everything to the point my foot nearly fell off, seemingly to no avail to moment I went on my toes i could feel my heel slip in the boot and foot pain.

never being able to fully eliminate the foot pain/heel lift over 6 years despite several different pairs of boots and hours spent with fitters.

In the shops, moving around... absolutely fine, on the slope heel lift and foot pain...

In reply to post #3...
I’ve found heel lift can be corrected with a few technique changes.
Try without your board attached, toes relaxed, flat footed, try to pressure the balls of your feet without your heels leaving the floor, pushing the hips forward helps.

whoops didn't mean to double post, I forgot I'd responded to it

Cheers I'll see how it goes in the new year, going to Castleford as it's only an hour away. Am going to use that to get my boarding legs back and work on my technique - hopefully as you say it will be something i can eliminate.

It did gradually get better but was always there.
