What's up with stomp pad in the middle of the board?
 
Seriously, I had to tell this noob who put his stomp pad in the wrong orientation in the middle of the board, then proceed to stand his back foot in the middle of his board when skating.:unsure:
Couldn't help but tell him to put his back foot against the rear foot not in the middle.
Was I being a dick?

First part no, second part yeah. I skate with no stomp pad, and boot in the middle for easier turning but if it's sketchy or I need to go far I put my back foot against the binding.

Do you keep a narrow stance for easier turning?

For me, boot in the middle doesn't make anything easier. I put my foot against the binding and carve like I would with my foot strapped in.

As a newb, I'd say it depends how you said it. If it was "it works better if you put your foot back against the binding" you weren't being a dick. If you said "put your foot back, dumbass" then you were being a dick. Trying to help others whem you see them doing something wrong isn't being a dick.

Depends on how you told him I guess. I had to tell a guy who was skating around, trying to get on n off the lifts with his free foot forward! :blink: :blink: :blink: (...strapped foot to the rear!) :eek:

Now He was gonna kill himself or someone else tryin' to skate around like that, so dick or no, I tried to straighten him out! (....was funny watching him try to do that on the flats tho!) :D

well I wouldn't call someone dumbass even if they were my friends. I just feel like the "caring too much" guy when I try to tell someone they are doing wrong.:dunno:

This weekend I noticed all the rental boards had the stomp pads in the middle. I found it weird at first but then I thought it's not such a bad idea if they have to switch the bindings from regular to goofy and back.

^this...and a lot of folks skate or glide 1 footy with their free foot right up against the front binding....and it works very well because you are steering with your front leg and this method weights the nose....you don't need your back foot up against the back binding...false security...instead of having skating skills

in this age when those who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground think they know all, there really is no point. and it's almost impossible to strike the right tone so that unsolicited advice does not sound like dick-ness from on high. people will figure things out for themselves....or not
