I'd recommend not using a stomp pad. They are completely unnecessary, and if you have a good looking board it ruins the look. Just step to the inside of your back binding and use a little backwards pressure against the binding - absolutely no need for a stomp pad.
i think stomp pads are unnecessary but its nice to have.
sometimes the top sheet with snow just makes it too slippery to step on and then ud wish u have a stomp pad.
if ur worried about them ruining ur board, get some smaller ones but they wont stick as good.
