So what if I rocked a stomp pad back in the day? Haven't had one in years, but I am man enough to admit there was a time when I needed it, otherwise I would've been falling a hell of a lot more while skating or exiting the lift. My favorite was the Dakine Modular since you could adjust it to fit your boot properly. It comes in colors/patterns but I preferred the clear one since it's the least noticeable on the hill:

Some sticks like the carbonium topsheet NS boards have great grip, while most are really slick. I wouldn't fault a noob for rocking a stomp pad. It looks a hell of a lot better than falling everytime you have one-foot unstrapped. Still, it does look retarded and I'd clown the shit out of any of my boys if they showed up with one.
