I got this pain in what I believe is called fibularis longus muscle in my right (forward riding) leg. Its the muscle below the knee on the right side of the right leg. Evertime I land in the flats or on the wake it kills me, I'll have to stop riding for a while. Anyway, am I doing something wrong or riding wrong. Anyone else ever has this problem....Upload

shin splints, or something very similar to shin splints, i.e. muscle pulling away due to over-exertion. The fix? you need to stretch more and keep those muscles in better shape with some low-impact activities. I'm stuck at a desk for half of my day so I do "toe push-ups" to keep the blood flowin...if you want to keep riding while "injured", just stick to toe side wake jumps/ts 3's/ts fronts/etc... that worked for me, there is less strain landing on your toes, and its good for your riding too
