Default Stomp pads

Hey guyz
i just got my first snowboard last weekend
i'm relatively new to snowboarding, this is my second season snowboarding
but i think i'm a pretty fast learner because out of the 2 times i boarded last year, i've already learned how to link turns
now i'm wondering whether or not i should get a stomp pad for my board or not
the only thing thats holding me back is that if i get a stomp pad, it will completely cover up the logo on snowboard
i hav a burton hate, and if i put a stomp pad on, it will completely cover up the little "hate" on the side of the board
so do you guyz think getting a stomp pad is worth covering up that logo on my snowboard at my begginer-intermediate level?? or can i manage just fine without it?
as i said, i'm pretty new to the sport, so any input is welcome
thx in advance

get something like this that won't cover the logo. You can arrange them in any pattern you want.

DAKINE Pyramid Studs - 9 Pk from Backcountry.com

Personally, I have never used a stomp pad so it's really just rider preference. I say go for it if you think it will help you and it will only make getting off the lift that much easier

well, we are in a bit of a jam now, aren't we....

Hmmm... not using a stomp pad will mean maybe slipping out when getting off the lift...

but using it will cover up the logo and people won't be able to see what kind of board you are falling down on....


perplexing indeed.

that's why you keep most of your weight on your front foot and control the board w/ ur leading foot

are those slits in the pads? i bet ice would build up in there and wont offer any grip.

In my 10+ years of boarding I've never bothered witha stomp pad... They really aren't necessary... I suppose if you're just really uncordinated and can't balance your self for the life of you then get one... but then again snowboarding probably wont be a good hobbie to pick up anyways

They're the exact opposite. They are raised ridges. Hence the name scraper.
