Default Need a stomp pad.

I'm looking to buy a new stomp pad. Any suggestions? I have a lamar mission 151 board with liquid bindings and I'm tired of slipping on the lifts.

I have forgone the stomp pads as they always seem to get as slick as the board does. I picked up some of the aluminum studs and they seem to work much better. And since they come packaged as individual pieces, you can set them as wide apart or close together as you want.

SCZ71 is rite...if your going to bother with one at all, it might as well be the metal studs. Besides that, use your body weight more by applying pressure on your loose foot. Push it into the side of the back binding creating a false sense of attachment...that should work

This thought is more so for shits and giggles, but try attaching bottle caps to the top of your board. How well that will work, I have no freaking clue.

i no longer bother with stomp pads.

my mighty groin muscles adequately push my trailing foot against the inside of my rear binder!

If your ever planning on running your board through a belt grinder for tuning, you should go with a smaller foam or rubber stomp pad. Burton, Dakine are some good places to start. However, as stated above, these pads often wear out or don't offer a lot of grip. If your solely concerned with grip, studs are the best bet for preventing slippage. Burton studs are very nice and you can place them on the board however you want (I made a cross design on one of my boards). Hope that helps

Thanks for all the help. Sounds like studs are the way to go.
