I shattered my ankle when I was about 16 which required surgery. The cartilage in the front of my ankle is damaged, so any time I come down on the ankle in an overly flexed position (toes pointing up), it hurts like hell. It's never been too bad, and I've always just powered through it. Lately it's been acting up, and I've made it worse with a couple under-rotated scarecrows where I come down heavy on the toes, so it just cranks my ankle.

I've been reading a lot about ankle braces and binding choices, but most of those posts seem to be related to inversion sprains (rolling the ankle to the inside). I haven't found anything specifically about pain in the front of the ankle.

Do the braces, taping, etc. work for front ankle pain like what I described? Is there a specific brace that can limit flexion? Also, can you recommend any '08 - '09 bindings that I should demo that might help to limit flexion?

I currently ride an '07 CWB Transcend with '07 Zeus. I don't have a boardshop close by, so demoing might be tough. The CWB rep lives where I live, so it would be easy(er) to demo CWB, but I'm open to anything, just a matter of getting my hands on them!
