But it's totally clear so you don't lose any of your graphics.
sounds like you need a lighter board mate.

Or at least he needs to put his other foot under it.

Way to revive a really old thread btw.

There are some steep exit ramps on the lifts at my local hill. There were a few times where I probably would have been on my ass if I didn't have a stomp pad. There have also been times where I have to cut a quick turn coming of the lift cuz some moron isn't getting out of the way. Both cases, I think the stomp pad gave me more control.

I am sure that some people get by without them. I personally use them to increase the control I have with my board coming off the lift.

Either way is not an issue.

For me it depends where I am boarding. Normally I would never use a stomp pad, but I needed to put one on when I was boarding in South America this summer because getting off some the lifts is quite a chore. One place in Chili you had to ride a decently steep downhill for about a quarter of mile right when you got off the lift. There were a few times where my back foot slipped off without a stomp pad.

I doubt you would find anything like that in the U.S. though, ski resorts here actually care about peoples safety.

I never use them but just try and get most of the snow off the board and boot before exiting the chair. Most times I have my back foot up against the back of my front binding. Much more stable to me. Plus you get that hood ornament feeling coming down the ramp.

I've heard it's a little harder to control RC boards one footed ,so might break my stomp pad cherry this winter for my new RC board
