Kevin137 I get why people use them, i have a single stud on each of my boards, and that is simply so i can ride the t-bar if the chairlift packs up...!!!

Oh and i actually polish the top sheet of my boards at the start of the season with car polish, normally 3 coats...

Makes for a very easy clean when there is loads of powder, doesn't get dirty in the spring from all the shit snow, and it also stops the top sheet from freezing up in the box on the trip home... As there is no snow left on it... So i have a very slippery top sheet.. Haha

tradnwaves4snow saw a guy lose his board once on the mellow slope to the car park (remarkables NZ) hit some dude walking down in the back of the foot and he had a pretty gnarly stack, just lucky it didnt hit his young daughter that he was holding hands with.

so yea I think leashes are great for people new to the sport

as for stomp pads if you press your foot back against your binding you should be fine, I used them on my first board and it definitely helps when you're learning.

Definitely it's going to be beginners who will lose their board down the hill. I had to go chase one down the beginner run at Manning for a friend's 10-year old son a couple years back. But I think when the beginner loses their board they've already taken it off and would have disconnected a leash.

I've seen skis go down the hill too, and they've had leashes and ski brakes forever. There's simply no cure for stupidity.

Fuck it, if you want to use one and you find that it helps you, USE ONE!

Very good sir!

If you rock a stomp pad and it helps you off some of those crazy ass lifts and long catwalks then fuck all the bullshit, and fuck the haters.

Redline I'm mostly just stunned that there is a six page thread about stomp pads. What works for you works for you. I haven't had one in years, not knocking anyone who does though.
