Stomp Pad Question

Question to SnowboardSecrets.com

Q. My name is Dan and I'm looking to get a used snowboard off craigs list. But it doesn't have a stomp pad. If you do need one on a ski lift, how much is it? Thanks
Daniel J.

A. A stomp pad is $10 to $15 and is a convenience to help prevent slipping of your back foot when you get off the lift and the back foot it isn't buckled into the board. It should be placed so when your back foot is on the stomp pad it's right up against the inside of your back binding, so you're solid. Lots of more "hard core" riders don't use them.
I think they are handy and good. Stomp pads online here.

Dan, they are about $10. If you don't want to spend a lot of money go to GalacticSnowSports stompads section and check it out. Even if they sell used skis and used snowboards, you can also find some new gear.

there is also a new stomp pad with a velcro strap called a Strap Pad (see strappad.com), which allows you to slip your back foot under the strap for comfort while riding the lift. It retails for about $20
