Default Do I need a stomp pad?

Just got the 2008 Arbor Alt...

Do I need to / should I throw a stomp pad on the board? Want to protect the board, but don't love the idea of covering the graphics...

Any opinions?

Why wouldnt u need it? i though the point of the stomp pad is to keep your back foot on the board when u get off the lift..

I guess I need to get out and see how comfortable I am on this board without the pad...

Was also thinking of just going to the hardware store and buying some of those clear plastic nubs you can use on the inside of cabinet doors and sticking them on the board...

thanks both...

If you want to protect the board, slap on some clear 3M. If you don't feel comfortable getting off the lift, slap on a stomp pad!

I've used those on my board, and they work absolutely great without really covering the graphics at all. Highly recommended.

if you want it, go for it, just saying they aren't neccasary, specialy if you like the graphics. you can just push your back foot against the back bindings when getting off the lift to ride away.

Some informative reading. I have a Dakine iron cross on one of my boards that is clear and doesn't cover up any graphics. DAKINE : X MAT

I went through this exact thing with my Arbor Mystic. The bottom line is stomp pads are unnecessary. If you are comfortable on a board your back foot doesn't need to work to turn it. However I have 2 friends in their 1st and 2nd year who can't live without their pad .

I've used my board without a stomp pad several times. Just wipe off all the snow you can while on the lift, and press your foot up against the back binding for some traction. Its more difficult without a stomp pad, but after a few runs, you get the hang of it and it really isn't an issue.
