Default STOMP-PADS are for SISSIES!

So here we are, the infamous stomp pad, used by those who know not the ways of a steezy snowboard setup. The idea of Stomp-pads make sense, but PLEASE dont invest your time and money on them. they're not necassary and they're plain not cool. Hows about you just press your back leg againts that binding and apply pressure to the front of your back foot/toes. It gives you just as much hold and can further increase your potential to hit features with one foot out!

This is integral if youre trying to look like you know whats up.

Since when did stomp pads become infamous? If people want to use stomp pads then obviously, they think it'll benefit them and realistically, stomp pads do help! Sorry we all can't be a badass like you. I use it, it helps me greatly when getting off of the lifts. I think I'll be a mess if it weren't for them. Stomp pads have their purposes, let people choose accordingly.

This is integral if you're trying to not look like a douche bag.

Or better yet, go buy a car without ABS. You don't need ABS to stop a car. Then let us know what's up.

I guess I don't see the point of going out and buying a super hardcore one...

but at the same time, I use the one that came with my board and like it. If stomp pads prevent a single person from wiping out an entire chair after landing than it has my support.

An aid to avoiding the retarded when you only have one foot bound. Especially in the icy off load areas in some countries.

some of you saw my posts when this happened but last year I messed up my knee because of no stomp pad. I was doing demos on a rainy/slushy day, came off a crowded lift on a demo board with no stomp pad, had to make a quick move, put my foot down and it just flew out from under me. Tweaked the hell out of it and sprained my MCL pretty badly. I see no reason not to have one on there, as someone said, you might not need ABS but it can sure be helpful if the situation arises.

Is a post like this integral if you're trying to look like a douche with no life?

How does the person next to you having a stomp pad affect you even in the least? It's really worthy of a new thread? Are things really that slow in Australia? Go fuck a kangaroo or something.

Have you thought about seeing a therapist for your stomp pad neurosis?

Stomp pad is a $10 investment that reduces your chances of a jacked knee and a season ending injury. Plus you have the added bonus of pissing off at least one anti-stomp pad OCD Aussie in desperate need of some poon. How can you beat that?

I get a kick out of situations like this, where someone is trying to dictate right and wrong (or cool and uncool). I don't want to get into an insult fest, but I basically don't give a shit if you or anyone else thinks what I'm doing is hip or geeky. I'll wear gumboots when working in mud; I'll tuck my jeans into my sock if I don't have a leg clip when cycling; and I'll use a stomp pad because it works for me. And anyone who is offended by the sight can kiss the darkest part of my (not very) hairy white ass.
