Default Stomp pads - I just don't get them them.

Seriously why do people put these on? They all look ugly and I just don't understand why anyone would need one? Surely it's a solution to a problem that doesn't exist??

Why? Because it gives you more grip. I don't use one though, don't need it.

Some people are too lazy to clean the snow off there boards.

I think the real question is "Why the fuck do you care what someone else does or doesn't have on their snowboard?". It's all a matter of personal preference and opinion. I can ride with one or without. My preference is to have one if the topsheet of the board is a slick finish. If it's more of a matte finish, then I don't find it necessary. Point is, why care? Just go ride.

Wtf? Are you that bored that you'd start this thread? Not even a good troll

Huh? I should stop at the bottom by the lift, unstrap and clean my board down every lap?

What he said. My deck has a gloss finish and is slippery as fuck. Someone close this lame-ass thread please?

Hey sorry, I didn't wish to cause offence and I didn't realise it was such a touchy subject. Stick whatever you like on your board, it's yours I just don't really get the need for them. I've never missed not having one. I guess I'm curious if people put them on out of an actual need, or if they just put them on out of habit/accessorising. Actually I agree, it's a pointless thread, I don't care enough about the answer to upset anyone over it.

For the record, I never suggested anyone shouldn't be using them. Though I do think they spoil the aesthetics of the board. Like everything else that's just a tradeoff I guess. The question was merely a curiosity that should have stayed in my head, or better answered by trying one myself. My apologies. I have zero problem with this thread being deleted.

I am actually seriously considering getting a stomp pad to see the added advantage when getting off lift, or gliding my way to the queue up for the chairlifts. I have no issues with egos.

I have a clear one. I use it because my deck has a slick finish and If the lift is busy and some scrub is getting squirrely off the lift I'd rather not worry about my leg flying off as I have to dodge people. If anyone wants to hate on me for having one, they can kiss my ass. Too many egos on the mountain.

One of the wisest pieces of advice I ever got when buying a board is worry about how it rides, not how it looks. If you are actually using it, who cares anyway? It should be covered in snow.
