Beyond the beginner level, it is personal choice. Certainly not necessary, but what the hell, if something makes your life a little easier, then go for it. In the course of my job, I do a lot of riding one footed so I like having a little "crutch" to make it easier. I like the Dakaine metal studs best. I stick 3 or 4 of them next to the rear bindings and they are hardly noticeable yet give me plenty of traction to prevent a slip off of the board.
Thanks Snowolf. I am going to take your recommendation. I was wondering if I should get a stomp pad for my son but your post convinced me. He is 10 and just started snowboarding. I bought him a board/boot/binding package online but I wasn't sure what else he needed. Thanks

I catagorically dissent, and I've been riding for 20+ years. You get a long icy off-ramp, slippery top sheet, and some lose snow under your foot, and things can get messy. A stomp pad can help mitigate those problems.

I'd find them more helpful if I ever managed to hit the damn thing getting off the lift. I'd fall trying to hit the stomp pad and slip off the board. At least for me, planting against the binding works better.

Uhm, that's why you put the stomp pad by your rear binding?

My board was used, so the pad was already placed, pretty close to the center. Guess I should have said that before.

Dakinel studs

I put the dakine studs on my new board..made sure it was free of grease and dirt...lost everyone of them on my trip to Red Mtn. last year..was not really impressed..so now I ride without, but if I did decide to put a stomp pad back on..I'd go with a full stick-on sheet.

^ Odd. I have them on my decks for some time and never had any problem with. Usually put in over 40 days a season, and under all kinds of conditions.

While almost any stomp pad offers a little grip for your back foot in glides and skidding turns off the lift, I really like the Dakine pads with the spikey cones. It's the only one I know of that is really well suited to clearing caked snow off the soles of your boots, which is the best use there is for a stomp pad, IMO.
