Where do you place your stomp pad?

So I've seen a few different positions for these. Mostly near the rear binding, some in the middle of the bindings and some right up by the front binding.

I usually place a strip from the dakine spike stomp pad near offset of center towards the toeside near the back binding. I tend to favor my toe on the free foot and it locks me in place. On some of my boards i dont run a stomp pad though, just slick topsheet.

Don't use one. I just press mah weight back tward the side of the binding. Then balance. On my old board I did put a couple of volcolm diamonds just against the side of my back binding but I have learned to balance now without needing one, even with a slick top sheet

Don't use one. I bought a new board last month and completely forgot to get a stomp pad before a weekend trip to Vail. Rode both days without one and realized it doesn't really make that big of a difference.

That being said, when I did use one I had it positioned right next to the back binding and pushed my rear foot into the back binding for extra support. Now without the stomp pad I just push my rear foot into the back binding.

What's a stomp pad?!?

Back foot against back binding if I needs the extra grips!

Wherever you want traction on your top sheet.
