    Posted: Jul/03/2010 at 2:18am
hey guys, this might sound stupid but i want some advice on how I should put these stomp pads on my board.

These are the stomp pads:

was thinking one on the heel and one on the toe, maybe even just one on the arch? suggestions would be great.

Thanks guys!

stand naturally and see where you should place it at. it should be close to your back binding. l prefer smaller stomp pads compared to bigger ones because they look better with the flow instead of a large thing in the middle

prob stick it at the same angle as the back bindings. a bit than less than the width of the boots away.

I typically like it more on the toeside than on the heel since it is harder for me to turn toeside with my foot out of the bindings.

first of all those are really small. you should probably get two sets.  I always like to have it far enough out that you can later move your back binding forward if need be without interference from the pad.  So about 6-9 inches -- measure that however you  want! -- in front of your regular back binder placement.  That gives you room not only to control the board by using pressure down on the pads but also kinda wedge your loose boot between the pads and your binder.  And make sure it looks good !!!

I just put these on my board yesterday I'll try to take a photo for you. I put them as stated above near the back binding about half my boot out. I put them vertically with the top one slightly more inwards to match my binding stance.

I found these stomp pads great for the Burton channel system. Used them today and was happy with the grip.

usually i just put them on the board... if there is one pad i put it in the middle... two i put one on heel and toe... it doesnt need to be an exact science as any traction probably keep ur foot on the board if you are doing it right

I would kindly place them in the trash and learn to skate/ride/unload without them.

I bought the same one and I put one at the arch so I can easily heel.

Thats a good way to place them. This way its centered on the boot and you can still press against the binding.

Thanks for asking this question. I bought a new board at the end of the season with these and hadn't put much thought into where to put them.

To get the most traction out of the pads i would put one under the ball of my foot and the other under my heel. But if you sometimes ride park with your back foot unstrapped then i would put one under the arch of your foot and the other on the tail. That is so you can do presses on boxes with your back foot on the tail.Wink

you really think this person is thinking about doing one-footed stuff in the park when s/he is asking about how to place stomp pads... i hope there was sarcasm there that i didn't pick up.

Wow, I haven't used a stomp pad since the mid 90's, since they're pretty worthless. So to answer your question of where to place them, the garbage seems about right.
I'm here for the points and if you're reading this, it means I just got one more!

Lol looks like the "I'm better than all these newbs" snob crew is out in force today. Pretty sure the guy asked where to put the stomp pads and not whether he needs them. Go stroke ur egos elsewhere okay? We all realise how bada$$ and hardcore you all are with your stomp padless boards. I hear tyrant snowboards is hiring, I'm sure u guys will fit right in. I kid I kid... I wouldn't wish working there on my worst enemies.

Anyway, I'll much rather have new boarders use them than have them slip getting off the lift and cause delays for everyone else. If this guy is asking where to put it, he's probably a new boarder. Get better and when u get ur next board, go a day and see if u still need the pad.

As for where to put it, one in the middle is fine if you ask me. Yore not suppose to push against the stomp pad to turn. It just helps u get a little traction. But it's all preference. Whatever gives u more confidence.

^haha thats funny.
but 1 isnt gonna cut it, its pretty awkward cause the pad is pretty thick and small, so youre gonna feel off balance at times with one centered one. they come in packs of two, and its hard to make a variation of designs with two pads. just put em on the heel and toe and alligned with your binding angle, pretty much standard procedure :D

Ahh I see. Didn't know they were that thick. I actually bought a set for my gfs vspot. It's sitting unopened in my closet somewhere. Way too lazy to find the 5 min to put them on. Honestly I wouldve preferred the thin clear ones from Burton and etc but these are 4.50 and the nice ones were like 15 bah.

It's not that I (or others for that matter) think that we are "better than these newbs", it's that stomp pads aren't necessary. Just like leashes, since people can't figure out that a board will run downhill after you unstrap, or people (like that d-bag DasBlunt) that wear Avalungs on bluebird days while side slipping groomers. It's just overkill and is unnecessary.

I understand your point of view... For intermediate and advanced riders. Yes, it is unnecessary at that level. With the correct skating technique, traction isnt a huge deal. But you can't just say they're unnecessary period. Beginners are beginners cus they dont know the correct techniques. So they obviously have their uses if all these beginners out there are saying that they help. And it's not like using em is gonna stunt their learning.

You make a good point. I guess it depends on where you ride. It seems on the ice coast (where I ride) that they do more harm than good since ice and "corn" snow tend to stick to the pads more than the board, causing more problems. That, and I'm really used to not having one. But yes, they can be beneficial for beginners while getting off of the lift.

Yes the cheap ones do more harm than good. Like the ones on the rental boards my gf used. They iced up and provid d no traction. One of the many reasons I bought a vspot for my gf. Only $150 which is like a few days of rental cost.

That looks fine.  I really don't think they add anything to the look of the board.

Just put them where you would normally step on your board to skate off the lift. As long as they add traction, they will be getting the job done. It's just a matter of personal preference and asthetics.

I found that one set (2) was a bit unstable and 'pokey' for my board. So I added another set (4 in total) now and its sweet :).

All it takes is one ride off the lift to answer your question. Do it without the pad and look down at where you woulda wanted the pad to be. Then brush the snow off yourself when you faceplant, make your way down the hill and put it where it shoulda been. Not too many places stomp pads can go.
