This is my second year wakeboarding, and I am really getting into it. My problem is that my rides are shortened by pain on the front edge of my front foot. Any Suggestions?

What boots are you riding?

O'Brien Whirley. I know they are an intro binding, but I bought a package deal because I had never wakeboarded before. I am self taught and did not want to spend the cash for something I did not know I would love.

could be your stance. Maybe the front foot angle is too straight so you are putting pressure on the outside of your foot more than you should?

Very true it could be how you have the binding angle set up.

Thanks, Andrea and Jeff. I will check it out when i get back on the water next week. Any suggestions on a good upgrade boot/binding?

I usually suggest cwb bindings because they are comfortable and affordable...especially when you are a beginner/intermediate level. I don't know how good of bindings you are looking for or what price you are willing to spend, but here's a few to look at

Do you ride switch much? If not, you might want to try it. My back gets sore if I don't ride switch at least a third of each set.
