Q. Removing old Stomp Pad
How can I remove my old ugly stomp pad without any damage to the board?
I think I can answer this cuz I just removed a stomp pad last week. My
friend expertly pried it off by slipping a screwdriver underneath.
But I'll ask some other people to confirm and let you know.
Jon Callahan answers:
I would recommend a large flat head screwdriver [to pry up the old stomp
pad.] Also if it has been on the board for a long time maybe use a
razorblade to scrape the extra goo off and a little base cleaner to make it
Yes, we used a razor blade alone, not in a holder, to carefully scrape up
the old glue. I needed to clean the topsheet because I was applying a full
board-sized decal to my board that I had custom made by Sikko Skins.
I've been riding for a couple of days with my new custom decal graphic.
Makes my 4 year old board seem fresh and new.
But we should have scraped the old goo off the topsheet of my board a little
more thoroughly. I can see it through the decal when the light hits it
By the way, Jon, is there any practical way to re-use a stomp pad that you
have pried off? My friend threw mine away, and now I can't find any I like
as much as the old one that is gone.
