However, stomppads are completely useless. I was told by a coworker this season that stompads are unnecessary, and I responded yea well I like my foot staying in place. He said "yea me too, but its straight physics. exert pressure through the board and the concave of the topsheet will hold you foot on."

after getting used to it, Ill never buy another stompad.
Could you elaborate a bit on this?

I'd be happy to get rid of stomp pads, but if I have to exert pressure on my board to keep my boot from slipping off - well, I'm too lazy for that if I'm skating any distance.

Am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

He means your back foot can stay in place simply by pushing down on it more, which is true. But like this, the sole of the boot could still slide out fairly easily
What a stomp pad does is stops your back foot from sliding across the board. My Dakine Modular pad is pretty slick like I said, but the spikes dig into the sole of my boot and keep it in place, which is nice and makes it a lot easier to skate farther on snow.

This is my stop pad. The EVA foam section in the middle isn't part of it; I just added that for extra friction.

The spikes on the smaller modular Dakine pads dont hold up well. At least mine didnt. Lasted a day and they were all flat. Use the big fat rubber spikes. Far better. Mine is charcoal in color and not a huge distraction on my board in my opinion. I found it unnecessary to cut up all over the board. grips great as it is. Ill put pics up in a minute.

In order...before, dakine modular, dakine rubber spike.

Sorry...phone shots not intended to grab just the stomp pads, but you get the idea. Plenty of grip without cutting up and spreading out.

How much grip to you actually need? I like the dakine modular because its super thin. I actually trim the points off of it with a nail clipper. Foot doesn't feel elevated like its on a platform and I can manipulated edge pressure much better. Honestly though I stopped using them on the last few boards because it was mostly there for psychological purposes. Once you get used to a board without one it all feels the same.

On most boards pretty tough. On the carbonium top sheet it came right off. Other reason I took the modular off. Wouldn't have stuck for long.

If you've ever seen a product called "Goo Gone" in a hardware store, it's the best for removing stomp pads. Let it soak in overnight and the next day the stomp pad should come off easily and cleanly.

It's worked for me every time.
