The top of my arbor is slick as snot when snow covered or wet. .Any time I tried to use that back foot to help steer, it slipped off the board. ...and, I was having trouble with the lifts at first without adding that to the mix. I fell, A LOT!!!

A stomp pad helped me immensely! Once I could keep my rear foot glued to the board, I fell a whole lot less often. (...dismounting the lift anyway!)


-edit-
....I should also mention I don't have a stomp on my other two boards! (Unless the mystical, magical NS carbonium top sheet of my proto counts as an "all over" stomp pad!) LOL!
