tDB Snowboard Stomp pad
This 6″ Snowboard Stomp pad protect assists riders when getting off of chair lifts. Mounted between the bindings, stomp pads are used to secure the rear foot when getting off of a chair lift at the top of the mountain. All pads come with high performance adhesive for secure mounting to the board by the recipient. Logo is protected under the clear material of the pad, which provides traction for keeping the rear foot in position.
You want to install your stomp pad as close to your back binding as you can – this will make it feel as close to your normal stance as you can make it. And it will also mean that you can lean your boot against the binding for extra stability.
Make sure that you position the stomp pad on the inside of the back binding.
Here’s how to find the best spot for your stomp pad.
- Place your snowboard on the ground and put your boots on
- Place your back foot on the snowboard on the inside of the back binding, close to the back binding so that you are still standing upright and so that the side of your boot is touching the side of the binding
- Mark the points on the board where the inside and outside of your boots touch the board
- When you place your stomp pad it should be inside these tape marks (or at least not outside the tape mark that’s next to the binding)
