Strap Pad

When you add a strap to a snowboard stomp pad you get Strap Pad. Though the Huntington Beach, Calif. company that launched last January is a new player, it entered an untouched market full of potential.

Like most other boarders, after a full day of riding lifts, my knees hurt from my board hanging by one foot. Strap Pad founders were sick of that feeling.

Strap Pad

The Strap Pad lets riders slip their free foot into the strap to hold up their board while riding the lift. It also makes it easier for beginner riders to get off the chair – which means fewer spills and fewer stopped chair rides.

The pad, which attaches to your board in the same way other stomp pads do, would be great for resort rental shops and beginners alike.

The Strap Pad is currently available for $22.50. www.strappad.com

Cool post. And this may be the utilitarian in me talking, but sliding your non-strapped in foot underneath the board also reduces the strain of the weight of the board.

attach this sideways on the board and you’ll suddenly have a fix to being the long snowboarder on a 4-person lift accidently stuck between a few skiers. I might just be slow to react, but I always seem to get stuck in this position, thus having me stick my board pretty straight out in front of me with no comfortable way to tuck my right foot underneath.

Pretty cool stomp pad. Here’s another one I found that goes even further with accessorizing a stomppad:

This thing holds your water bottle while you board! Check out their website.
