Is this thread really still going on?

Should have been "stomped" out long ago.

Sigh.

Just go ride.
I have the EXACT same answer.

This should have been the end of this thread.

I used a stomp pad my first year. I thought I needed one because my son's used one. After I bought my first new board and took it up without a stomp pad (forgot to get one) I found I didn't need one.

I just got a gopro for Christmas! I'll mount it on my helmet and look lame I guess. I don't really care. My wife can't hit the slopes and wants to enjoy watching our kids have fun and progress so it's worth it if it makes the wife happy.

Cool

I just want to say this will be my first year despite having my board for 3 years now, I'm headed out tomorrow to get my boots and was thinking about getting a stomp pad.

Funny reading all the pages over a stomp pad.

I took mine off and can't notice any difference. But top of board is not slippery anyway.

I have a slick top sheet and no stomp pad. I either have good balance or I'm just awesome.

I ended up ordering a black stomp pad that's modular, my top sheet is slick and I'm a noob I suspect I will fall a few times

If you think they are bulky or ugly just go get some sex wax and do it like you would a surfboard
